Anyone have a source where I can buy these or who would be willing to trade? I got hooked on this stuff from Penzeys a few months ago and I'm in love with it. I'm thinking about dehydrating some other kind of pepper this year after treating it with a little lemon juice since I remember reading somewhere that they're processed with a bit of lemon. If I can't find seeds, anyone have a recommendation about what kind I should try as a substitute?

Cleo, here's a source for some plants. This is the only place I've seen them.

Cool, I've been trying to find these peppers for a couple of years.

I've got seeds from well isolated plants that I saved last year... I sent out a few, but waited on the rest until I could see how they grew out this year. I'll try to save more seeds this year, also, but if I don't manage it I'll still have seeds to share, although there will just be a few in a packet so I can spread them around. This is a pepper that we need to get growing in the US! :-)

I sowed 5 seeds, got 3 plants and murdered one. The other 2 are doing great, and I will more than likely dig them up and over-winter them in the sunroom. The 4 plants I did that with last year, despite putting 2 of them out the night before a hard frost (major "duh-m"!), are going gang-busters.

Do you have some photos of your plants, Jill? I'd love to see what they are supposed to look like, and I'm sure yours rock! (Do these ripen to red? How big do the fruits get?)

photos are... somewhere... hmm... LOL My plants last year were in a pot, so they didn't really "rock" but did produce a few peppers... shape was like a small, skinny Gypsy pepper, and two of the plants had peppers that were maybe 2 inches long, third plant produced ones that were half again that size. They did ripen to red, with a nice tangy heat.

This is the smaller of my 2 plants, oddly producing sooner than the one that is taller and way fuller.

The shape of those peppers looks just like the ones I had last year. :-)

I am, but I'm not sure they've set peppers yet this year. I've got a couple of plants I need to put into a bigger pot, also, so I can isolate them for seeds and also bring them inside in fall. I just haven't been able to get out to the garden this past week, hopefully next week I'll be a bit back on my feet. Chemo didn't knock me down quite as hard the second time, but I'm still pretty well a couch potato at present. I'll grow extra next year to make up for it!

CHEMO???? What the F***.

I'm obviously out of the loop, but I am deeply religious and will up you on the prayer list!!! Dear Girl - you WILL triumph!

I'm sorry, didn't mean to knock you for a loop. I'm getting through it, and the chemo is kicking the cancer even harder than it's kicking me, so it's good! I've got a thread in the prayer forum where I've been posting about it, but I've sorta been letting the news spread itself. It's not really the kind of thing where you want to send out a Dmail blast "Hey, guess how I'm going to spend my summer vacation!?"

You know it kills me to watch my veggie garden out the window and not be able to walk down to it... and you can only imagine how the weeds are thriving! But tomatoes grow even through weeds. :-)

I appreciate your prayers!

You've got your baby and you WILL have your health.

Hugs and prayers to you...
