    Don't be scared! It depends on what you want the outcome of the sowings to be. If its a challenge and you hope to identify the types, even if not the variety, it doesn't matter what comes up.
    If you want to save seeds (with names) then it does.
    I'd be happy doing it with toms or beans or squashes because I could eat them, whatever they were. However, since I'm such a wimp with chillies, I would be afraid to taste them and they would all go to waste. You're made of stronger stuff though. Relax. It'll all come good.

    The plan is to ID as many as I can. But I'm not too fussed if I don't. They will still make great chilli powder if I don't know there names .

    I'll let you into a little secret. I don't like the taste of fresh hot chillies
    In meals no problem, on their own, no thanks.

    Ooh yes like the idea of a thread on this. Am waiting before sowing as we don't have a propagator or grow light. I was looking into growing lights today though.

    Just to make things perfectly clear. 175 is on top of my 60+ babies I'll be growing anyway.

    Seeds are sown .

    Ok so in my head it's going to work like this.
    Every cell has 1 to 6 seeds in it. Every cell has the same number of labels to seeds. So I know how many and which seeds.
    Every label has numbers and letters on it. The numbers obviously 1 to 175
    The letters are
    R = rocoto (of some variety)
    B= big size seeds
    M= medium sized seeds
    S= small size seeds
    T= tiny seeds
    BD= big dark seeds
    SD= small dark seeds
    Really not overly complicated to this point is it
    I'm guessing the dark seeds are just slightly over dried. Some of my cayenne seeds did that.

    Now we wait
