    Default Rocoto chilli from last years chilli seed swap

    I saved and distributed seeds from the above chilli last year.

    Unfortunately this year I had very few ripen so have not been able to save some seeds!

    Has anyone still got some from last year and if so can you pleasecsend me a few back? Please!

    They are a great chilli to grow btw.

    There are seeds of Rokita in the VSP but when I follow the link it takes you to Rocoto. Is it the same thing?

    Not sure which type yours were, but I've some spare saved Alberto's Locoto Rocoto, originally from Real Seeds if they are what you are looking for? I love them, super chillies.

    Hi all,

    They were rocoto pubescens....in little plastic packs.........they are a big thick skined round chilli.........

    Are they the ones in the VSP?

    I'm afraid I haven't got any of that type of chilli seed but it now sounds like I have another one to add to my list of 'want to try'! I don't have any more room on that list though!

    Rocoto are the only chilli seeds that are black; so if the ones in the VSP are black, you should be pretty sure it's the same one.

    However I think that Rokita are not Rocoto...only because I had some from the chilli circle and I don't remember them being anything other than the usual creamy coloured.

    Rokita are on here - google automatically searched for Rokoto and they are different...

    Any that were left from the seed parcel last year, were sent to the VSP...but I'll have a look after work and see if there's any here!
