    I am looking for a pepper farm to pick a peck of pickled peppers, any suggestions?
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    I only eat natural varieties of pepper that haven't been genetically modified with selective breeding. Too bad there ain't none.

    In 1768, according to legend, Minorcan settlers in St. Augustine, Florida, introduced the "Datil" pepper, a land race of the chinense species . Supposedly, this pepper was transferred from the Caribbean to Africa and then to Minorca in the Mediterranean, from which it was brought to Florida. Some historians believe that this story is all bunk and that the Datil peppers were introduced into Florida by trade with the Caribbean islands, a simpler explanation that makes a lot more sense.

    I just picked another Jalapeno & they're still about as 'hot' as a dam bell pepper :(
    Maybe I need to wait until they change colors (Red or ****-ever color other than this deep green) ???

    Any tips on growing Datils? It'll be on my balcony, I have good sunlight and I give my plants distilled water. I'm already growing a variety of herbs currently.

    Can datils be grown in a pot (not bedded) successfully? Also, what about the NPK ratio for the soil?

    Anything I should know?

    Also, JAxNole....don't be such a condescending Pr!ck you're giving FSU fans a bad rap.

    I'm still learning about heat characteristics and what all plays into it. Air temperature, sunlight and saturation level at time of pollination play an important role. If its somewhat cooler, wet and not as bright sunlight you will likely have more mild peppers than if it were very hot during blossom pollination. This is what I have read and experienced as well. My jalapeños here in fl were much hotter than the years before when I was growing in VA from the same seed stock. Like I said I'm still learning about heat levels and development. Turning red will make them noticeably more sweet but you may not see a change in heat.

    If you are still dead set on growing only from seeds, order them from here: http://www.chilepepperinstitute.org/cart/product/111/datil/

    That is what my friend from Texas pointed out and mainly about over watering. Of course in our Florida heat, they tend it wilt each day. Hard not to want to water them. I have both Hot and Sweet banana peppers and can't really tell the difference after they are sauteed. Never tried eating them raw though. :shrug

    Just got them in the ground....Habanaro, Thai chilli, Jalopeno, and yellow hot banana. I use them both dried, in a shaker, pickled, and infuse several jars of vinager each year.

    Anaheim, serrano, a few jalapeno varieties, poblano, big jim, orange bell, hatch, orange baby bell, red. I just lost several seeds unfortunately and need to re-stock. Id be willing to trade cuttings or seeds when i have them. Im new to floradi and have never experienced the datil pepper. Where should i start?

    Where are you located? I have a few mature datil plants now that I got from a friend and a few I've started from seed. PM me your address if you want seeds I have plenty. I'm a little outside jax, and around here and st Augustine mature plants are easy to come by at farmers markets and nurseries, etc. I love Datils they are one of my favorites now.
