    Default Chilli and Pepper Seed Circle 2020

    Go on, you know you want too!

    Save 1 variety of chilli with 4-6 seeds per pack.

    Peppers and chillies are a little more difficult to save seed, they often don't fruit and they can cross with each other. You can isolate one in the house, or one in the GH, bag the plant or a flower or use the glue method.

    # Please save seed from a good source - no F1s or from plants that have been grown from seed from a chilli found in the bottom of the fridge.

    Count me in. Growing about 20 types of chillis so will chose nearer the time and will also send in some sweet pepper seeds as I'm trialling quite a few of the real seeds early sweet peppers. Sweet Chocolate, Purple beauty, Amanda, Semeroh and Karkulka.

    So which ever lives up to its early description the best, I'll send that.

    Interested to see how Sweet Chocolate and Amanda do for you, they're both ones I've thought about trying before. We'll be growing Amy and Semaroh for the first time this year and will try to save seed from both. Also Aji Delight, Shishito, Lancer, Midas and Havana Gold if all goes to plan.
