wanted:Pepper( Chili) Seeds I will send you postage first

Can't Post | Private Reply
Hello there,

Ive been a lurker here for years! esp with the recipes that have been posted :)
Live in the dallas ft worth area....made a couple of visits in the past but nothing recently as our lives have just been too busy with family members (Medical Issues) and with work.

Unfortunately our hot water heater busted a few months ago when we were out of town and all of my saved seeds were destroyed :(

I had collected over 30 types when we made the last trip :(

90% of them are impossible to find here in the DFW area...

IF anyone is willing to send me some seeds i would really really appreciate it
just label the common name that they are known by tuta ect

I will send you a padded envelope with postage inside of it of first
I will pay for all costs.

Ive been on Gardenweb and SeedSavers exchange for years and can provide references

.
amy

We could send you some seeds, but don't the US APHIS rules require sterilizing seeds from Mexico with heat or strong chemicals? Sterile seeds from us would not seem to help?

What are your most sought-after seeds?

Once the APHIS question is answered of course.

Maybe you can list them by order of desirability i.e.:

Piquin, Arbol, Canton, Xchila, etc.

Steve,



the USDA has a Small Seed Lot import program. which i have the permit for its good for 3 years

this program allows you to import up to 50 seeds of one Taxon (type) and a max of 50 packets of seeds per shipment
without a phytosanitary certificate. which basically means 50 seeds of 50 types of peppers

the seeds have to be sent to a port of entry ( i use Houston) they are inspected and then forwarded to me
or else the seeds need a phytosanitary certificate from mexico if you want large quantities

the only pepper that has to be irradiated (useless to me lol) is Pepper, manzano

this is one pepper i can easily get here as it is grown in texas and has been for many years



I grow peppers for a hobby, and have imported several varieties from other countries.

I have Habenero(about 6 types), but everytime i get one there is a difference in the pepper depending on the region it comes from.

Xchila? is there another name for this one?


one year i grew over 200 varieties of peppers.
its gonna take probably a few years to replace what i had :(

some that are very specific to regions and are not available outside of that region.
unless someone is from that exact region you cant get them



some of these maybe know by a totally different name,it makes it very hard sometimes

some i would love to have again are:


Acorchado ( a type of jalapeno)
Amash ( a type of Pequin)
Bandeño( this one is from Guerrero)
Cambray
Caribe
Carrocillo( also known as Guero)
Catarina
Chiaca (known as Pasilla dried) i can never get the seeds that i can get locally to germinate
Chilitepe
Chilacate( known also as Tierra)
Chilcoxle (known also as chilcoxtle)
Chiltepin ( known also as Pequin and Tepin there are many varieties of this one)
Chiluacle (known also as chilguacle)
Cola De rata( type of chile De Arbol)
Cora( type of cascabel)
Corazon (type of poblano)
Costeno Amarillo
Costeno( known as bandeno,casero,criollo and sometimes as Corriente)
Coraxtla( type of Serrano)

 Google Chile X'catik. It's a longish yellow (or greenish yellow) pepper with very nice flavor - a little like an Anaheim - but they can seem to be pretty variable for heat - though maybe some of the variability depends on how much of the white veins holding seeds remain after cleaning? People report from 200 - 10,000 scovilles - but the prep might be a factor.

Restaurant owners call Chili X'catik: the chili that "makes the dog's nose run" .

That's odd because dogs do not have receptors for capsicum.
They can eat chiles without flinching.

This is probably a dumb question but have you checked the seeds available from the New Mexico State University Chile Pepper Institute:

Re post by Neil (hi, Neil): One thing missing from these posts re chile seeds is that many varieties are very sensitive to climatic, weather, and soil conditions and simply will not produce the same result should the desired/optimal conditions not exist.
I come from a southern New Mexico (Mesilla, Las Cruces) family who migrated to California (we NEVER ate Calif. chile, only NM chile) in the 1930s. My grandfather and two uncles were quite adept at farming and neither they, or anyone they knew, were ever able to get the famous NM chile varieties to produce flavorful "fruit" in southern California - that still holds true.
New Mexico State University has developed and evolved many varieties of NM chile, thanks to the pioneering efforts of a founding Japanese-American professor and agriculturist many decades ago.
That said, there ARE many varieties of chiles that are less sensitive and more robust that will do well under a variety of conditions.
