Otsikko: A tiny round pequin?
Kirjoitti: Jah - Huhtikuu 14, 2009, 11:32:00 ap
Hello there :)
My name is Boris, I'm from Russia. I am glad to be here.
About a year ago I've received an "unknown" seed package from a friend. She never knew where it was from :)
Well. One of five seeds germinated :) It became a pretty tree with tiny leaves, white flowers and orange-red little hot berries. They have a fruitty flavor and "explosive" heat... By the way, I like this variety so much that rooted a cutting, which is going to became a bonchi.


So, little questions.
1. Am I right it is kind of Pequin? Or maybe something else?
2. Are there any varieties looking similar?
3. Does anyone want to get some seeds from it? ;) It is self-pollinated using a huge fan (wind is very helpful to shake plants well to make them self-pollinate)
There's no any problem to send five or more seeds in an envelope over the world. Five or so berries are going to bear became orange, so seeds will be ready soon.

By the way, http://spice-blog.ru is a Chili blog in Russian :)

Hi Boris! nice nickname you have btw! :)

Welcome, very nice to see people from all around the world here!
Chiles really join all! Great! :)

You are very right about the plant, it could be called round pequin, or tepin, or chiltepin or anything like that.
Looks very unique, especially the pale green color when immature!
Will the pods get loose very easily when you touch the mature pods?
Or are they attached tightly to "stems" of the pods?
If they get loose very easily, it usually tells about the wild for when it comes to tepins.

Pequin is a good term if it seems to be a bred variety, to my knowledge, pequin term is more commonly used with a little elongated pods, but I've seen it to be used on round pods too.

Very interesting looking plant anyways!
I could do a little trade for that if you like, I could send you several kinds of vars.
If interested email me at fatalii at sci.fi

CU around!

Thanx :)
The berry isn't attached too tightly, but won't fall after a touch. So it's not too wild :) But it's still interesting, eh?
I'll email you right now :)

Yeah, very! The light colored immature pod makes it very different compared to others I've seen!

Some wild chiles can be also tightly attached so it doesn't tell it all, but usually gives an idea..

A new fact about this variety... A purple sunburn on the berries...

By the way, some new berries are becoming reddish. I still think that sending it's seeds over the world is a good idea :)
PM me.

Very pretty... it looks like a nice ornamental now.
Otsikko: Vs: A tiny round pequin?
Kirjoitti: Jah - Huhtikuu 27, 2009, 11:17:32 ap
Sure it does :)
Now I am waiting for ripening of some fruits (see this photo http://spice-blog.ru/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=145 ) to make pictures. I think it'll be really pretty photos :)
Hope you'll receive the seeds soon.

Hi everybody :)
Since nobody knows what is this variety, I decided to name it.
The name will be "The Pin tepin" :)

Kirjoitti: Jah - Toukokuu 13, 2009, 07:15:30 ap
Friends, now I have some seeds of this variety to send. Everyone may ask me for some :)
Otsikko: Vs: A tiny round pequin?
Kirjoitti: Fatalii - Toukokuu 14, 2009, 23:01:07 ip
Both vars germinated! Hope they will be on time!
Otsikko: Vs: A tiny round pequin?
Kirjoitti: Jah - Toukokuu 15, 2009, 07:11:10 ap
That's great :) So start making photos :)
Btw, there wasn't two vars, just two packages of the same var. I pack seeds by portions and send you two portions of the same :) Or did I forget something?
Otsikko: Vs: A tiny round pequin?
Kirjoitti: Fatalii - Toukokuu 20, 2009, 15:02:26 ip
Yes there was, the tiny pequin and the var you named after the donor. :)

Kirjoitti: Jah - Toukokuu 20, 2009, 15:07:03 ip
Oh, Laminada :) I named it after the place I found it :)
So both of them germinated :) That's really good.
BTW, I sent you another, the third, letter with other vars.
