I am in need of seeds from the Aribibi Gusano pepper. Anyone have some to share for trade or postage? I have Black Pearl and Brazilian Starfish seeds in exchange.

Looking for Aribibi Gusano (caterpillar pepper) seeds
I'm intrigued by this variety also.. said to have a smoky flavor, I think? I got seeds a few years back but didn't get any to germinate.
Sounds like it would rival the Holy Mole???
Any luck finding them?
I think it's way hotter than 'Holy Mole' -- descriptions I found a few years back (as memory serves) made it sound habanero - hot.
Aribibi Gusano: from the Capsicum Database "The 'Caterpillar Pepper' from Bolivia. This variety delivers good yields (up to 30 peppers per plant) of 1 ½" long by ¼" wide hot peppers which have a strong citrus taste. They mature from light green to yellow cream approximately 90 days after seedlings have emerged. Heat level 9. (Capsicum chinense)"
Arivivi Gusano - See Aribibi Gusano- Reimers offers under this name.
Thanks, FarmerDill! I just looked up the PF page, and the comments there also say citrusy, but I thought I remembered "smoky" from the description on my trade seed packet.. of course that could be suspect, as those seeds didn't germinate, LOL.
