These botanists are using drones to locate endangered plants on cliffsides in Hawaii that would otherwise be impossible to find.

Photographed these at Mercado Rodriguez in La Paz, Bolivia just before returning home. 

 

Simply referred to as, "Ulupica" 

 

So, I assumed likely, C eximium...BUT I think now as I look at the photos of the seedlings that have emerged for my friend in Bolivia, I believe they may be C cardenasii.

 

Here are the fruit:

Do these fruit and calyx look more like cardenasii or eximium to you?

My friend brought me the same Ulupica peppers from La Paz. Don’t know certainly what species are they, but mine never germinated due the mold. I’m intererested in seeing photo(s) of the seedlings.
Good luck.:thumbsup:

We seem to have germinated a few too many cultivars this spring.... so we added a row.

 

 

Listen, if you or anyone you know is suffering from this problem, let them know there is help they can get, we just don't know what the number to that hotline is.

 

Will keep you updated. Care reacts.

Episode # 2 - "Chiva Rallada'

 

Join us as we continue our short, morning coffee sessions while giving a sneak peek into some proper culling and selection making etiquette.

 

This one was a special gift from our good friend Ub and we've enjoyed watching them this spring. Can't wait to try them and help Ub along in chasing his standards for this cross. The 'striped goat' or Chiva Rallada is to continue its line only with the desired stripes on the fruit.

Belli !

 

Where did you find CGN 19198 Seeds ?

I'm asking that because I grew it in the past and the flowers' colours were lighter (the shape was very similar insted).

 

For the resta... Congratulations, wonderful plants and photos !

I believe mine came from Fowler in Wales. 

 

Flash photography, depending on settings, tend to embellish colors in a more flattering way. I do my best to make sure my edits are true to nature and reality. In person, with the naked eye, they do appear a bit lighter in color, but this is fairly accurate.

Very nice!

Yes, it seems there is some C.baccatum in it

A bit of a disaster that morning on the pepper farm. Generally {in smaller containers} the branches have enough time to reach the cage for support and that tends to mitigate splitting at the base. These 202 gallon/765 liter containers are so wide that the quickly growing branches didn't have enough time to reach them. So, a quick fix with bambo, twine and tape has seemed to hold for now and no wilting in those branches. Soon they will reach the support of the cage and I won't have to monitor so closely. Fatalii is back! Real original Fatalii from my garden in the early 2000's. I sent these seeds to a close friend here and long time seed storage guru back in 2005. He was able to send those back to me this year in the original package. Germination went very well. I can't wait to taste that flavor again. The original Fatalii from the Congo? was very special. It had such a unique flavor that lasted with you all day long. Even in burps, there was something refreshing about burping the entire day with "fatalii burps" ... The fruit I remember vibrant, true yellow, with every slight color shift to the warmer yellow towards the end of the season on the outer most wrinkles in fruit surfaces. The shape almost always dead straight and either three to four lobes running the entire surface of the fruit from calyx to fruit tip. Almost reminiscent of the 3/4 lobe grading scale for true Jamaican MOA scotch bonnets I've read about. I vaguely remember reading something so many years ago about perhaps a translation in name of "tiger's tooth"? Maybe I dreamed that. 

 

Anyhow, since those early 2000's I haven't seen many examples of the real deal, the original, so I am forever grateful to be able to look up to people with much more stringent seed storing methods than I. I am thankful for them very much. Learning every day.
