Chilli Heat: "el mas picante de los picantes"

"the hottest of the hot"

A friend from the community garden gave me some seed of the chilli variety rocotos (Capsicum pubescens)  It is possibly a rocoto longo which is native to the Canary Islands. It is pictured on the plate at 2 o'clock and is dark red and oval shaped. At this time of the year, the chilli plants drop a lot of leaves but the fruit continues to ripen. I want to save seed from these ones and start off new plants in spring. July is my month for browsing the seed catalogues and dreaming about what to grow next summer.


  1. Hot! I had some perfectly round chillies, ans somehow an oval chilli plant got in among them. Now I have only the oval ones. Shows which gene is dominant.

  2. I just found this fabulous website and after that read through a number of the guides.
    I absolutely just like the style of writing and just how all articles tend to be formatted.

    find it much better in the future. Now I am going to inform you about a bit about my internet site,
