    Bangalore whippets tail has already been isolated and pollinated successfully. If there are any seeds when i open him up, you're more than welcome to some

    There is a fairly high chance you've not got a true scotch bonnet . He's still got a good bit of heat.

    They are looking good Trip.

    He is next on my save list. I like them to produce a couple of there own before I start interfering.
    If it works, I'll send you some.
    I found a pod on the guntur sannam this morning. They're not small either, are they!

    I’ve tried a bigger bag to save seed from my Trinidad scorpion in the hope with a few flowers isolated I will get one as least! I’m having quite a few flowers drop.

    I'm now on my sixth and final attempt at isolating and pollinating from this little.......BLEEP!
    It's producing a good number of fruit by itself. I've tried bagging tightly closed buds, I've tried buds very close to opening. I've only managed to get a paint brush near 2 flowers so far. They were both on the floor next morning!
    I've given up trying with Bulgarian carrot and peach tiger tooth as well. Neither of them are playing nicely.

    Same problems here.
    Tried single, then bunches of buds (removed couple larger leaves). Some I even got to small pods, but then there was the great bud and pod drop last week or so. Think had too much fruit on the bush.

    I moved one plant to another greenhouse( don't have any more seed for it) and marked the clean stems with flowers at bud stage. Some of them are dropping off. Fingers crossed.
    Next year will get the early flowers.

    It is annoying, but I'm not to fussed. I've managed to successfully isolate and pollinat the 25 varieties I wanted. Should save a small fortune on seeds next year. I only need to buy one packet because it's an f1 variety.
