I dont know about your peppers, but I know what you mean about not trusting certain sites. Im having the same issue two of my plants are starting to look like something other than I thought I was purchasing. I would stick to any of the sites the folks here recommend or through the seed swaps that go on here. I was able to recieve many peppers from kind members here and hope to pay it forward to others as well once harvest time comes. A quick search on seed resellers in the forums should yield plenty of info on dependable sites that you may be able to find the seeds you need on.

RE: kung pao/balada

Seems I found the wrong "Seeds of Africa" website,

Here is a link that might be useful: Seeds of Africa

RE: kung pao/balada

lmao @ northeast.

Two main pepper plants on that site-- capsicum sativa and capsicum indica ;)


RE: kung pao/balada

I dunno. Given the screen name of the OP, you might be talking about the same site.


lmao at the whole thread

RE: kung pao/balada

lol @ Dennis. Now why would a deadhead have bad things to say about that website?


RE: kung pao/balada

Hey Deadhead, been growing them for years. I get mine from burpee or Trade winds. Yes, you have to be very careful I've bought them from other places and have no idea what I actually grew.

P.S. thanks for the heads up. I was tempted to buy seeds from them last year as they were the only place I could find that sold the seeds that I was looking for, glad I didn't bother.
