Do you use them to make pastes and stuff as well as cooking with them?, you have a lot of plants there.

Well I put six seeds into damp kitchen paper when I last posted to this thread and in 9 days only one has sprouted. Not sure what to make of that, but the successful seed has been transplanted into a small pot today, so let’s hope it results in a plant.

Due to the low success rate I’ve started 6 new seeds off today in kitchen paper and have moved them plus the 5 unsprouted original ones to a warmer place.  I’ll come back in a week or two and see how they are faring.

Some seeds are critical of temperature and moisture control, if they are kept warm generally the germination rate will increase

I make my own chilli ketchup, super hot chilli pickle, various other sauces etc. Just getting into fermenting then too.
The ones I don’t use I dry or sell in 500g boxes. Amazing how many chillies you can get off 1 plant, here is just 1 pick from 4 plants

Thanks guys and wow, that’s an inspiring picture from Andy. I’ll be happy with a few finger chillies, if I get that far.

You should be proud of that crop of chillies, good effort. How are you going to dry your `kashmir chillies, then will you just grind them up as required?

I have a dehydrator, I will then just grind in small batches
