My apologies, this is a late addition to this thread. This is the time of year I put together my seed list and I usually submit an order to Richters (just N of Toronto. Richters sells about twenty different types of hot peppers as well as plugs (juvenile plants). They have ghost peppers and others in excess of 1 mill Sc units? I'd be afraid to even touch those seeds!
I have probably jumped the gun but i started my seed already. They are in a humidity dome. Plus i have 3 (orange hab, ghost, and Carolina reaper) that i was able to over winter. They are all actually still growing very slowly.
Growing a few of these Rio Huallaga rocoto peppers this season, all growing in their own five gallon pots.
This strain of rocoto pepper comes from Northern Peru and is very tolerant of harsh growing conditions and quite enjoys Canada's cooler summer nights.
The plant itself, sports slightly hairy leaves and purple colored flowers, with yellowish-orange thick walled pods that contain black seeds.
It produces a nice quantity of pods on a compact plant and also does very well in pots.
Rocotos can handle our cool autumn weather quite well and i figure that there is still another six weeks of outside ripening that can be milked, before the cold and lack of effective sunlight ends the season for good.
