    Growing, but a long way from fruiting (flower buds just appearing) I've got:

    Yellow fatali
    Aribibi Gusano
    Peach Habanero
    Mustard Habanero
    Chocolate Habanero
    Orange Habanero
    White Habanero
    Early Jalapeno (not!)
    Angolan Gindungo Cahombo
    Brazilian Starfish
    Prik Chee Faa

    I don't mind saving the seeds from ripe fruit if anyone would like, but I can't be bothered to isolate them - so let me know. But atm who knows how many will fruit, depends on the weather and such.

    I've been picking choc habs, hot lemons, peach habs, scotch bonnets and what I was told were dorset nagas, but 2 different sources have given 2 different looking chillies. I think one looks more authentic, the other one looks as if it might be a cross with scotch bonnet, both are pretty hot though. Some plants were sown last Sept, others at the beginning of Dec, so they are quite well ahead. They are all hand pollinated inside.
    The ones sown at the end of Jan are just beginning to fruit in the greenhouse. Those are not isolated, so might have crossed. I tried the pva glue on some, but obviously did not use enough because the flowers still managed to open .
    I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!
    Now a little Shrinking Violet.
