This was not expected. I'm not eating these sorrels, but seems ideal as border plants for landscaping.

That sorrel looks awesome. Which species is it?

Re: 32 year old Tomato Seeds

That's quite exciting. Even if nothing germinates, the information on all the seed packets could be quite valuable.

Some chemicals are said to help with the germination of very old seeds.

Re: Garden Leader Monster tomato

Garden Leader Monster is still getting ripe fruit, and is producing decently. We've been canning them, though. So, I haven't tasted any more fresh, yet. I'm guessing they'll be less mealy now that they have sunlight. I think I'll grow it again. I'm excited to see how it does with some acclimatizatio...

Re: Very Early and/or Cool Weather Tomatoes

Nico I've grown Sub Arctic Plenty (from Baker Creek). It did better the year I grew it in a large container with two other container-worthy tomatoes vs. the year I grew it in the ground with black plastic with drought. It was not early either year for me, but it was very prolific the first year, wi...

Wanted: orange sweet peppers

I'm looking to trade or do an SASE with someone in the USA. It looks like I've got plenty of peppers arranged to grow next year from kind people who have responded to me. So, I'm going to change the list to just the very top ones I'm interested in that aren't accounted for, so I'll be able to make r...

Re: Fave Sweet Orange Bell Pepper?

I'm planning to some orange bell peppers next year. So, if you remind me next year, I might be able to evaluate the flavor of these for you: * Orange Sun * Horizon * An orange version of Golden California Wonder If I can gets my hands on more orange sweet peppers, I'll probably grow those next year,...

Re: Artichokes and Cardoons

We purchased a Bonnie Plants Green Globe artichoke plant in the spring of 2019 (May, early June, or so). It came with a mild disease, or something, though, by the look of it when we purchased it. Anyway, it produced artichokes nicely that year. The flowers looked really nice (and were huge); so, I d...

Do hot pepper leaves always contain capsaicin?

I'm wondering if one can taste (not eat) the leaves of a C. annuum pepper plant before it flowers to determine if the fruit is going to be hot or not. Has anyone tried this already?

Yeah, I could just try it myself, and I might, but I haven't, yet.

Re: Watermelons are ripe!

Here's one from seeds I saved from Santo Domingo Brown Seeded last year; the seeds are still brown (a lighter brown than the picture seems to indicate) and the same size, this year, but there's a good chance it's a cross, especially as the rind looks different. The fruit was much larger last year. T...

Re: Very Early and/or Cool Weather Tomatoes

Welcome! :) Days to maturity is kind of subjective, since it depends on the year and the growing conditions, as well as the variety. So, very early varieties might be later than very early some years, and in some places. The earliest tomato I've ever grown (out of many) is my early Galapagos Island ...

I like licorice (the candy and the legume root). I also like fennel, anise, and other seeds from the celery family. I have considered anise unpleasant on sausage on pizza a few times (but that's usually only when the pizza isn't cooked quite enough, or if I eat sausage pizza too often), but I like j...

Re: How to mask the flavor of cloves

peebee I'm not sure. I've never had star anise, but I have had regular anise (Pimpinella anisum) and anise hyssop (Agastache foeniculum). Does star anise taste like cloves, or have similar uses? I hear if you have star anise you need to take great care that you trust the source, and that it is pure...

… I don’t really understand the how durable are they question. … By durable, I mean it can handle being tossed around, handled, knocked against something, having things on top of it, etc. without breaking or noticeably bruising. Some tomatoes if you so much as touch them, it seems, they'll break (r...

How to mask the flavor of cloves

I discovered yesterday that black pepper can mask the flavor of cloves! This is tremendously joyful news for me. I think I'll start putting black pepper in all my ketchup. [Ketchup has cloves in it (sometimes a very noticeable amount, but usually it's a subtle flavor).] I had some turkey franks, yes...
