ATTN: Encho, and others from South America "Peppers"

I have been fascinated for years by the peppers, and also strange kinds of corn such as "Rojas Hornitos" that grow in South America.

I don't know if it is possible to send seeds by mail, but I am curious about the different kinds of plants like this that are out there.

Peppers we have not heard of, corn and other things that are different than in North America...

I am also a gardener, and unusual plants fascinate me.

Many of the truly unique things out there are common in your country. I would like to hear about them...

Interesting stuff....
One of my housemates will eat dried Jalapeno's by themself for a quick snack.

Needless to say he doesn't find many dishes hot.

We have a variety of plants here that would fascinate you, many "carnivorous" plants, most of the orchid species known (heck! mi grandma has one orchid plant that has lived for more than 30 years, it wont be long before it begins to talk)... Chaguaramo palmtrees (check my gallery). As for what you ask, most of the corn grown in Venezuela is bought in the US, and as for the peppers, i think we have some native species, one of them is called Sweet "Aj", because of its mildness, and the hot "Aj", a little stronger, both very popular in Venezuelan recipes. There is also the "Chirelito"... man... those tiny suckers sure are hot.

Chirelito - is this a kind of a tiny little one that is like a "Pequin" or "Petin" chili?
Almost a perfect triangle when you look at it from the side, and only about a centimeter across?

There was a man I knew who was from Guadalajara that gave me some seeds one year that grew into fair sized bushes - but the peppers were tiny little heart shaped things that could eat holes in an aluminum pot...

I used to dry them in little plastic baskets, and for eight litres of chile only three of them were needed to make it so hot most of the people I knew would not eat it...

Here is a website that offers a free catalog of rare peppers from around the world. The sources might be less expensive if I can track them down but these are all in one place. The online shopping catalog lists a number of interesting peppers from as far off as Africa:

http://www.pepperjoe.com

In fact - they list one pepper from Turkey that can get as much as nine or ten inches long - yet it is a HOT pepper...

There are some other places I have found online - they all have online ordering except that one or two I found addresses to mail to. One of these is :

http://www.reimerseeds.com

On that site I managed to track down something that sounds like the chirelito's. I had bad luck looking for Chirelito seeds, so i looked through a lot of catalogs online. The clues led me to Chiltepin peppers, and ultimately to Tepin chili peppers which are said to be the very hottest peppers on earth - more so than Habanero, or any of the Thai peppers. But it also says they are very hard to get started.

I am going to try to get some of those seeds, and see what happens.

Take your time - if I don't fix my tiller soon I'm going to have a lot more pepper plants than I have garden...

I think something is in the gas. Probably water from all the recent rain.

But I have a second set of seed trays all sprouting right now too...

Speaking to one of my doctor friends - he said hot chillis are very good for your metabolism, and loosing weight.
Didn't quite understand why, but take that for what its worth.

"Capsaisin" is also good as a pain reliever. The downside of it is that it can eventually kill off pain receptors.

That isn't good, because most pain is a warning of damage.

I can't imagine a grilled cheese sandwich without jalapeno slices though...

Come to think of it - I consider jalapenos to be the ultimate green vegetable!

Hi Grey wolf; I`m from Uruguay and i inform you that is some plant in uruguay that interest you i can try to sendit to you but here in uruguay ther is no interesting plants and the airport controls and all that, i think that its hard to send you de seeds form here. I don.t know anything about plants but here are alot of imported seeds and plants from all over the world many of them are illegally pass by the brazil - Uruguay border bacause there is no more border control since the creation of the mercosur. So its no hard to find foreing exotic plants here, but no ocal species.
