    Can I ask- (well I’m going to anyway so sorry if I sound stupid)
    How many seeds will I need to save? I only ask as ended up isolating my chilli as looked quite droopy in the bag was worried I’d loose the flowers completely but now my Trinidad perfume plants are also starting to bud up and don’t really have another good isolation spot! Was thinking I could just swap them over once the fruit is set but will that be enough seeds?

    It depends how many people participate. You need 5 or 6 seeds for each participant. Also some pods contain loads of seeds and other have hardly any. One pod might be enough or you might need 10. Scarlet can advise better.

    I'm in with Nebru 7. I have one plant indoors (no pollinating insects) which has set lots of pods which were hand tickled with a dedicated cotton bud so shouldn't have crossed with anything. Plant no. 2 set a few pods indoors including one nice big one. It's now outdoors so any other pods could have been cross-pollinated but the big pod definitely won't be.

    That's an interesting, rare and hot choice

    Will be interested to hear how it tastes

    Rare enough for your post here to show up on the first page of a google search.

    Thanks Mitzi.
    The Havana’s gold I have separate is meant to be prolific no idea how many seeds per pod but hopefully will have enough!

    We try to save around half a dozen seeds per person. You can usually find out how many pods you will need by using one of your unisolated pods and roughly counting the seeds. It’s surprising how many seeds there are in a little pod.

    I'm not sure how hot it will be; I'm expecting hot but not superhot; none ripe yet. I think it's sometimes called 7 pot Nebru so you might get more hits on that.
