Lol, timing is such a fine art for superhots, did you manage to overwinter any,?
I kept one Naga which didnt make it, i think where i have kept it was too cold.
I will try again this year to keep one, it gives the plant a head start.

I kept one Bhut but, like you, I think it was in too cold a place.

My little bunch of chilli plants potted-on into five inch pots. Had a scare as two of them went very limp for a couple of hours after transplanting, but they've perked up :)

I've just received my orders of seeds for next season and further.  I'm not into the hots so I've gone towards the easy, high yield, useful plants.

I have a packet of seeds each of Rajah and Kashmiri mirch, 2 packets each of Green Cayenne, Red Cayenne, Green Jalapeno and Australian Red Chilli.  I'll also be preparing for a bed of mixed variety Capsicum / Bell Pepper this year as well, so I'm looking forward to winter preparations for spring planting.

I'm going to do some early viability testing of seeds out of dried imported Kashmiri and Byadji varieties.  I don't know if they've had any sterilization processes or not for import.  Has anybody tried to grow them from imported pod seed before?

Oh no. Not another secret!  At least tell me, is it 5 % of the result or more?  If it's less than 5% I wont obsess over it for too long. Possibly only 5 - 10 years instead of 20.
