Mexican Chilli Varieties - Seeds / Seedlings?


Recommended Posts

Anyone know where I can buy seeds or seedlings for jalepenos in Bangkok? I'm not really a fan of the Thai varieties, nor of the pickled ones. I'd be interested to experiment with others such as pablano, serrano or habenero, if I could get them. I would prefer to grow them myself.

Anyone sell this stuff? I've been to a couple of seed suppliers, but no luck. Kind of surprised at how limited they were.

Hello Crushdepth, two of the places I've ordered from, and will mail to LOS are:

www.chilepepperinstitute.org and www.burrellseeds.us

I buy most of my seed from Burrells. It's been a few since I used CPI, but Burrells

I just e-mail them with all the order info/addresses and call them a day later and

give them my CC #, the run the card info and about 10 days, priority mail/express

mail what ever it is, not regular mail.

Remember, Mex chilies don't grow here.

The serrrano plant is a year old, the are about 1/2 size in the rain. The young plants

were transplanted this week.(hydroponic)

Rellanos are one of my top 5 Mexican foods. But I like the Anaheim's better.

Awesome, sounds great. But what do you mean by they don't grow here? You mean the Bangkok climate is wrong, or just that they haven't been introduced here?

Hello All, the "not grow here" was sort of tung in cheek. The reason I joined TV

was to post and show pictures of what people were saying they couldn't grow.

My wife and a neighbor dirt grow Jal's and serranos to make their smelly fish

shit, the wife is now a true believer Mex chilies can add flavor instead of just heat.

I also forgot to put Tomato Growers in FL will also send to LOS. Have a big selection

of hot and sweet peppers.

I have a couple of seed orders sitting So. of SFO waiting for a couple more orders

arrive before my son ships it off, should have a spare pack(30seed) of Jaloro as I

only wanted the bulk pack if your interested? Smaller plant than Early or M, good for

growing in containers, less prone to diseases. Goes from lite green to yellow to red.

There's a picture of one of my Jaloro plants/fruit in one of the Hydro threads.

Also a bit more heat than the other OP Jals.

Should have the seed by Aug. 14.

I like the Jaloro, thats why I bought Bulk. You can buy 4,000 M or Early seed from

Burrells cheaper than the $8.15 for 180/250 seeds from TGS.

Hello All, soidog I try to monitor the plants for any signs

of critteres and start with spraying water with a "Fog-It"

spray head on the hose. Soap and chili sprays, neem, or

if still having problems, usually I pull out the Synegta

lambda as last resort. Again, it depends at what stage the

plants or fruit are at.

Had little black ones under the eggplant leafs on some transplants.

Washed them off, but I think they were looking for dry place

for the night, had one one of thoes sideways storms come

through late Sunday night.

I'm also a believer of companion planting to help with plant

protectsion.

Thank you for sharing, recently I started using wood vinegar mixed with neem and otwo.

Trying to find something that works relatively well for chillies, tomatoes & fruit.

The sweet star fruit is always generous, I make fresh squeezed juice every morning, don't want chemicals.

Best reagrds.

Hello soidog2, I hand brushed under the leafs as I only have a few plants going

as we are moving to the farm before the first of the year.

I just used the neem/dishsoap on the eggplants, my serranos show no sign of

critters and they are only a few feet away.

Wood vinegar doesn't affect plants like regular vinegar? Vinegar is use as a weed

spray if I remember right?

Wood vinegar in various concentrations; can be used as an anti fungal spray or nematode killer or insecticide.

Incredible potential, used mostly in Japan, available here.

If you need documentation, let me know.

Yes at 50-1 can be used as weed killer; many other option, not that interesting.

Hello Sunday Afternoon, I haven't got my seeds yet, it's been a comedy of

errors getting a check to my son in Calif. to send me my care package.

I have grown about 10 different blacks in LOS and find them well worth the

effort.

My wife boosts my black cherries for her som tim.

The only thing bad about not getting my seeds is that I have added more

to the care package.

Hello cloodhopper, been a bit way under the weather,sorry for the long delay.

I've had good with anaheim's and a few more of the NuMex chilies, home of the anaheim.

Senior Oregata started canning them in Anaheim CA.

I like better the NM-Joe E Parker, NM-Big Jim and NM-Sandia.

They have a hard time settingin humid and real hot times, and shade cloth is a plus.

Best info on CP is OL at chilipeper.org, or look up New Mexico chile pepper instate, nice

pictures and info and will Mail seeds. Also have the fire chilies.

My NM chili seed, I buy from D B Burrell Seed in Rockyford CO. They also mail the way

you want, it's hard to pay $3 for 30seed, Burrell's $8. per/oz,(3500-4000seed),all depends

on the growing area.

Hello All, WMJ there is several threads with TV-members have grown tabs and

nagas with pictures. I would be more helpful if you gave more info on time of year,

weather at the time and partial or full sun, bugs/disease, water/fert/OG fert-compost.

They do grow in LOS and some people have made hot sauces for sale and just

recently I saw a Thai Ag magazine with Thais growing nagas and scorpions and

selling XXX-hot sauces.

Where did you get your seed and how old were they?

Thanks for replying. It has been so long I don't remember any except the seeds were brought from the usa right after purchased. I do remember that i started them in potting soil then transplanted to the garden i was growing thai chilis in.

Hello All, I was off to a good start on hydro grown NuMex Big Jim, the younger

brother of the Anaheim chili made famous by Mr. Ortaga.( a few of his products

are available at Villa, Soi 33)

I ended up in the Gov. hospital here in Korat for over a week with a leg infection

and my thriving plants went by the way side. A neighbor lady watered all my chili

plants(also serranos) but ran out of nutrients to feed the plants. Plants growing in

coir need their food, not just water. After getting back home, I had to stay off my

leg for 3 more weeks, so no nutes were mixed up or used to feed the plants, I gust

wrote off the crops and was glad I still had a leg.

The first picture is one of my plants that took it in the shorts. It would have been a

good harvest otherwise.

The second and third pic's are of Big Jim's from www.chiliseedsusa.com and the

fourth pic also from them is the 2011 World Record longest chili, also a BJ.

The last pic is a hyb. anaheim type chili that I'm trying to source some seed for the

my next growing season.

Hello All, lipupfatty I'am up and doing OK, Thanks for asking.

A the pictures except the last one are NuMex Big Jim's which

are thick walled and have a great taste after roasting, peeled

and stuffed with cheese and fried, topped with a good hot salsa.

Better known as a "chili relleno", one of my favorites.

I just seeded a few trays of chilies last week to keep from getting

bored, we aren't sure when the house at the farm will be ready

for us to move in, so no big planting here in town, and a few trays

are easy to move.

Hello All, well I'm now going to be growing here in town for

another 7months before moving to the farm. My two trays

of starts have the won't need to travel, the first to emerge

were some Blacks from Tula, chilies take a week or longer

has been my experience.

I had been planing to grow a rai of Mex chilies and went

through most of the Big US seed Co's looking for high end

Hyb's and came up with this as my new list, has been

ordered and should be on the way.

A couple of Jal's, some anchos, serrano's and anaheim's.

Hello All, somebody was looking for NuMex "Barker Hot" and since New Mexico was at one

time, part of Mexico.

Anyways, if you are looking for B-H seed or other NuMex or Mex bulk seed, go to:

http://www.burrellseeds.us/ and download their catalog.

They will USPS here to LOS and will also do Priority or Express Mail over regular Air Mail.

I send them an @ with the verity and the amount, and and mailing instructions and call them

the next day and give them CC info for billing. Remember they are on RMT when calling.

114 years in the seed business.

Again, their B-H seed pkt. is around 100 seed, 1/4oz. is 900 and 1oz. is 4,000.

A copy of the seed listing needs to be error checked for size "12" wide" and 15-300,000

Scovilles.
