I want your seeds!
One of my aims for this growing year is to save more seed. I was going to do it more last year but through a mixture of my own disorganisation, poor planning and a mouse eating all my sweet pepper seeds, I didn't quite manage what I hoped.
I have managed to save some though, so I'll offer up some Cherry Bomb and Cucamelon seeds to anyone that wants to swap with me, I also have plenty of fennel as it grows like crazy here.
This is a really mild chilli pepper and more like a sweet pepper in some respects, it has the tiniest amount of heat to it. I grew it with the pure intention of trying to copy a very popular sweet pickled pepper that we buy from the shops and with a little help I completely nailed it. A nice little chilli to grow that doesn't take up much space, not much good to adding heat to a meal though so I'd grow others as well.
My girls loved these last year and I know that many of you were interested in growing these. They taste like a crispy cucumber with a hint of lime and great as a snack and I'd imagine they'd pickle really well. I haven't got huge numbers of seeds but a few should be enough to get you growing, once you've grown them once you can save the little tubers they produce underground and grow from these the next year as well (I'll do a post on that another time).
They're a thin climbing vine and grow like mad but don't take up too much space. I had them growing in the greenhouse and had three to 12" pot and they coped fine (I do feed quite a bit though).
If you want some let me know by email it's kevalviti at hotmail dot com (I won't keep this email up too long).
Sorry I've not got more to offer!
If you have something to swap then that's great, if not then just send me an SAE and I'll send you some anyway!
