Really? Well, if anyone here would know these peppers it would be you HBL ha ha. I thought I saw them all. Did you ever taste one? I'd love to grow them sometime.
Anyone know where I can get seeds? Oh, how funny!

Exclamation Re: This is called 'Willy Pepper'

Those are what I call "pervert peppers"...so nope, I haven't grown them.


Shockingly, I don't have seeds for them either!


I could easily get them though...just give me a little time, and I'll share a few with ya. I think I might know someone who's got them...

What is Chilli Willy? - More about Chilli Willy & Chilli Willy Products

The chillies that the Chilli Willy plant produces are well known for their intense heat, which is greater than that of Tabasco Sauce, and almost 10x hotter than Jalapeno Peppers, to which they are closely related in specimen.

Joy Re: This is called 'Willy Pepper'

This is a true heirloom pepper. The have been kept for a couple hundred years, but seeds were never sold. People that had them were a little secretive. They were passed down from one generation to the next and occasionally shared.

Since we have become less puritanical in recent years they are being sold by several companies. I bought a pack of seed 4 years ago. They produced a large fall crop. Most are like jalapeno but a few are hotter and some are very mild.

I think traditionally there were best known as peter peppers. I have seen seed sold under several names using the exact same picture. Copywrite??

I grow peter peppers every year and a few other heirloom peppers like beaver dam. I also have about 14 other varieties of peppers ( turks cap, kung pao, golden cayenne, portugal, fish, etc) that I wil be happy to share. Get back with me at the end of summer and I can send some seeds to who ever wants some.

I have saved seeds from several garden veggies and have enjoyed some interesting crosses.

Don't the peppers cross pollinate when you have so many varieties??

I have never had a problem with cross pollination that I have noticed. I have a large garden plot with the peppers seperated fairly well and also have them spread out in the raised beds around the house and yard. I only save seed from a select few. The rest I get annually as seedlings from a friend who grows about 50 different peppers and 200+ varieties of tomatoes each year.
When I set up my aquaponics system and building this year I may take a little extra care. Since I am just growing for myself to eat, I am not too worried about cross pollination.

I sell those every year. I have red peter peppers and next year I hope to have yellow ones too. They taste a lot like a cayenne to me, thin walled and fairly hot. a lot of them do turn out looking like that too!
