    I would suggest min about 6? Incase of germination problems....of course some chillis have less seeds in anyway, so I'll leave it to your discretion...

    Mmm, I've just cut up my ripe peach habs, most had no seeds at all, and the mustard ones aren't much better. I'm going to see how many of each type I can get before I decide what I can offer. The choc habs are fine, I've got enough of them for the circle.

    The minimum is just one type anyway, so no worries Barleysugar

    I now have dried/packed seeds of : Fatalli, Caribbean Red (these are so hot the whole house was complaining when I was extracting the seeds about the fumes hitting the back of their throats ) Red Savina, Nu-mex Twilight, Ring o Fire and orange Hab. I will also have, before season ends, Dorset Naga, Bhut Jolokia and Gambia Red. Not sure if I'll have any Congo Black or Chocolate Hab.

    I've been looking at my seeds, I've enough for 6 each of Choc Habanero and Gusto purple, but only 3 of the peach habaneros. I don't grow lots of the same type of each one, and hadn't really thought about the fact I'd need 108 seeds of each type. The other varieties I've got I am not certain of them being self pollinated, or the correct type when I swapped them in the first place. Although I'm happy to grow them again, I wouldn't want to pass them on to others as named varieties.
