Trusted chilli seed suppliers?

Posted: 15/10/2014 at 17:33
Thank you both for your replies, so you're saying that maybe because I was growing jalape??o and bhut jolakia both in my greenhouse, they've cross pollinated and that's why? I mean the jalape??o plant and chillies are fine it's just the bhuts.
I shall give that website a look up anyway.. Plenty time to prepare for next years offspring =)

Trusted chilli seed suppliers?

Evening all, I wrote about this in a different thread but not sure if it was seen, Basically all year I've been growing a couple types of chillies, some of which were ghost chillies (bhut jolakia) or should I say they were supposed to be! Long story short, they certainly were not what they were meant to be. I bought the seeds off eBay after reading quite a few happy comments, these people had obviously not started growing them yet. The purpose of this thread was basically just to ask if any chilli heads on here could recommend a reliable source in which to get the correct seeds from? Or if anybody would like to kindly donate me some of which they have been growing this year that would be awesome! I'm afraid I could only offer jalape??o seeds in return unless anybody wanted to grow my apparent ghost chillies themselves? They're a large red chilli with a mild heat to them lol. Thanks in advance.

Just thought I'd bump this thread now it's coming towards winter.
Unfortunately, what I was sold as bhut jolakia seeds early this year, I've now found out they definitely are not! I've put a pic on a different thread but will try get it on here too to see if anybody can ID whatever it is I've grown but they're large chillies with minimal heat to them.
My jalape??os have a good kick to them though apparently!
Wondering if any of you lovely people would be kind enough to send me some of your different types of chilli seeds? At least I know then I won't be getting jipped lol
Thanks in advance =)

Well, it was confirmed this weekend that the bhut jolakia I was growing which I thought was too big to be bhut jolakia... Was infact not bhut jolakia!
Pretty gutted I was sold the seeds on eBay claiming that they were when infact they were not!
So I have a question, could anybody point me in the right direction to getting the right seeds from trusted places so next year I don't waste most the year growing something which isn't what it's meant to be?
I have no idea what it is that I've actually grown but they're large chillies with a small amount of heat. I'll upload a picture when I'm next on the computer as I can't do it on my phone (which by the way, if there's a moderator reading this.. It would be a pretty cool idea to add that feature for us phone webbers =) )
Thanks in advance ladies and gents.

Chilli peppers

Posted: 16/09/2014 at 02:06
Ghost peppers were at one point the hottest in the world but there's since been hotter ones found,
I think currently the hottest in the world is the Carolina reaper!
I also have ghost peppers on the go but not sure they actually are as they seem huge compared to ones I've seen in pictures, Just starting to turn red now though so will soon find out how hot they are!

Quick question(s) for Stacey:
Since I last posted, I now have a load of fruit on my jalape??o and bhut jolokia plants.. I have a question about them both though.
I was under the impression that the chillies from bhut jolokia would be quite small and compact?... Mine are huge!
And jalape??os, seen as though I've only seen them chopped up on top of the likes of pizzas etc.. Are they meant to look quite shrivelled, wrinkly and all kinds of funny shapes? Haha
Thanks.

Growing Tomatoes in Pots

Posted: 17/07/2014 at 22:57
None of mine are in pots any larger than 10 litres, like I say though when I've been getting in from work and it's hot you can see the leaves have all curled and the plants look rather withered but I give them a good water and a few hours later they look right as rain again!
I've also been leaving my greenhouse door open aswell as the vents as I think it's getting a bit too hot for them in there, dunno of this is what everyone does anyway...?

Growing Tomatoes in Pots

Mine do this often with this heat we're having but plenty of water and they near enough all return back to normal.
That's my advice anyway but I'm just a first timer so I'm sure there's plenty others on here that know a hell of a lot more than me! =)
