Peppadew
« : Syyskuu 21, 2011, 21:41:29 ip »
Came across this baccatum just now. It seems to have a pretty big following (probably a lot of hype though), so I would like to have a go at growing it sometime...

I couldn't find it on fatalii. Could it go by some other name perhaps?

"Peppadew is a trademark name."

"Although clearly controversial there is also a mystery that surrounds the peppadew plant due to the complete lack of availability of its plants or seeds on the open market. It turns out that the distribution of peppadew plant material is strictly controlled and the growers of the Peppadew ‘fruit’ are made to sign a contract which – if they are found to be distributing seeds outside the company - could face prosecution from the licence holding company. So jealously controlled are the movements of this plant that the production fields are actually guarded"

Now you know why Fatalii nor any other reputable seed vendor sells it.

However, let's continue with LMGTFY and we find interesting forum post http://www.wildchilli.eu/forum/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=92 .
Knowing that there are members of wildchilli.eu on this forum we could make assumptions that some people on this forum might already be a closet Peppadew grower...

Copyrighted chillies? *facepalm* Well, if anyone (preferably in Finland) has a few peppadew seeds to spare, maybe a stamp addressed envelope and a 5 euro note will tickle someone's stigma?

I think I may have some extra Peppadew(S. Africa) seeds to spare. :)
I'm telling you, I boil the best toast.
