Hello Sarah, can't offer any heirloom chili seeds but have been growing the same chili plant in a pot for the last four years here in Queenstown and so long as you bring them indoors in winter or keep them in a frost free environment, they are totally cold hardy.

I am looking for heirloom varieties of chili seeds, including those more tolerant of cold weather (to extend the growing season).  Overall I'm looking for chilies with excellent flavour and good heat.  I'm in West Auckland.  Thank you!

Yes soak before popping, ive sent you a PM

Comment by Donna on August 13, 2016 at 12:36pm

Do you mean soak it before popping? I wouldn't think so? But I have heard (and try to) soak before sowing them to grow helps them germinate. These seeds might be 3-4 years old? Or at least, that's when I got them (from our local permaculture group seed bank).

I was given some pop corn seed from a lady in Nelson, but it didn't pop too well, are you suppose to soak the corn first?. So how old is the seed you have

Comment by Donna on August 13, 2016 at 11:04am

Hi Richard, I do have popping corn - black and strawberry. Unfortunately the seed is quite old though so I'm not sure on how viable they are. I was planning to plant one lot out fully this year, with the hope some would germinate and I could refresh/increase my seed supply. Then grow the other next year with the same hope (trying to avoid cross pollination and don't have the time/space to grow both varieties this year!). Perhaps I could send you one lot and if we are successful we could exchange some back at the end of the season?!
