Looking for peppers in the Tampa Bay,Fl area.

brewmastaOctober 27, 2010

Hello all. I am new to the site and new to growing peppers. I started off with the regular varieties one could get at Lowes(Jap,Habs). Also found two nice Caribbean reds at the local flea market. Looking to get some different varieties, but cant find any at the nurseries.

I am not sure if anyone on the forum is in my area or not. But I would like any info if someone is near by.

Also not sure about the internet sites either.

I wouldn't mind if anyone has some "spare seeds" or anything like that to send.

Oh yea I am looking for hot peppers.

Thanks a bunch.

Try to keep your eyes open at the local food stores especially the specialty food stores.

Also look for the Datil hot peppers. The center for them is around St. Augustine, Florida. How far is that from you? But local florida stores should get some.

Forget nurseries. You will have to learn how to germinate your own seeds if you want the best peppers.

Here is a link that might be useful: Datil Pepper

Im looking for some good bhut jolokia seeds or plants that anyone locally may have and I was wondering if yeild is affected by growing the plants indoors when it gets cooler in clearwater fl?
