Thank you! A lot of repeats from last year and many from the MMMM and trades. If they'll go for me I'll save lots of seeds to share


Alex, Baker Creek was my source for Ajvarski; this will be the 3rd year growing it. I think you're right about all the re-labelling that goes on - even innocent () re-labelling, such as "so-and-so's [name of country] Red", when the variety obviously already had a name from wherever it was from. There must be so many duplicate varieties!
All that matters is that you enjoy what you are growing, no matter what the name is.
Alex

The more I grow, the more appealing the idea of landraces becomes - and if that route, names become important only in record keeping. But for the commerce side of things it's very different.
As with most things, the issue has many sides.

I have grown the Rezha, and like it very much. It is the sweetest hot pepper I have
ever tried. I have grown it 3 seasons, and only problem for me is that it is not very
productive. It could be something I'm doing wrong, don't know. I am excited to try
Mini Piperka which I ordered from Refining Fire Chili's. It's suppose to be the same
pepper, but smaller fruits, and better production. I have roasted the Rezha, but never
made powder with it. I think it would make a awesome powder.
I'm curious where this Mini Piperka came from though.

I have some familiarity with region and was curious as to what this pepper could be. Ajvar refers to the relish made fro roasted peppers and many varieties are used for that purpose. The most popular is Kurtovska Kapija and is identical to Baker Creek's Ajvarski Sweet.

The reason I mention this is that we get so many peppers and tomatoes that are the same but have been re-labeled, not a big deal, but it is nice to know what variety you are actually growing and what it is called.

First time I will be trying this pepper. It had all good reviews (Baker Creek) Maybe
it is Kurtovska Kapija, another pepper I have not grown.

Same here. One benefit to growing peppers in containers is I can put them close to cross or secluded to prevent it (or by covering). Over the next several years I am going to switch to all landrace crops. I'm already doing muskmelons, watermelons, squash, and lettuce this year (Thanks to Joseph Lofthouse) and once I feel like those are where I want them for my location I will likely focus on peppers and spinach. I just get so tired of having to buy seeds every year and many times being disappointed in the results. Gardening should be fun, not heartache.

It is a very good pepper for everyday use, thick and sweet. There are several others from Serbia/Macedonia/Bulgaria that are similar; Palanacko Cudo, Elephant's Ear and Chervena Chuska.

Kaboutermutsenpaprika (Gnome Hat Paprika). Looks good. I'll have to look for the seeds next time I am in the Netherlands.

I got that one in this year's MMMM (thanks Ann123!) I also thought it looks good, and if I can grow it and save seeds I'll send you some.

I haven't tasted these yet. If the orange one is good, I will save the seeds. I'm
assuming these are the same as the ones you guys have grown out.
