By request, here's the seed saving forum.

I imagine this forum will be targeted towards those who are interested in saving seeds with an eye toward maintaining strains of OP and heirloom plants.

Prevention of cross-pollination, maintaining genetic diversity, and what-have-you.

Is there anything special one needs to do to save pepper seed? I am very disappointed in the seeds I saved last year, the ones two years old germinated better~! Did not do anything differently as far as saving and planting the seed...what am I doing wrong? Any ideas? Thanks Much~!!!scoot

Dave: You might want to move this to it's own thread, i.e. pepper seeds.

Scoot: What, exactly, is your procedure?

Pepper seeds are among the easiest to save, because they need no special treatment other than drying.

Be sure that the peppers are fully ripe, or slightly over-ripe before laying them out to dry. I just scrape them off the central core onto a drying rack, and that's all.

Some people water-separate the seed, discarding the non-viable. But I don't bother with this myself.

I can't split threads in half like that. I already thought of this when I first saw the post this morning. :(
