Seed Swaps

Chilli "Not Scotch Bonnet (Yellow) v2"

Given the success of “Etna 2011”, and the complete lack of any Scotch Bonnet
action from my traditionally planted seeds so far, I’ve decided to try the “damp paper towel and plastic bag” method.

There are 6 seeds in reserve in case these fail

3/6 of V2 germinated, plus 1/6 of V1

18/06/11: As per v1, these are SO NOT Scotch Bonnet, it’s untrue! Pics will follow…

November 2011: Trimmed back for overwintering. Only one plant kept

And it turned out that these were actually “Jamaican Yellow Hot”… Rather nice, medium heat, fruityness that seems to develop more once they’ve been frozen
