In Search of Ulipica Seeds PDF Print E-mail

Q: Hello Dave,

Do you know where I can get seeds for an Ulipica pepper? I’ve heard that they beat a habanero hands down, and would like to try and grow some of them in my garden. 

Thanks,

Rich

 

A: Hello Rich:

It is doubtful that the Ulupica, thought to be Capsicum eximium, a wild species, is hotter than  the habanero.  It is a "bird pepper," so the pods are very small.  The only source I know of is Seed Savers Exchange.  You will have to join the organization and receive a massive catalog to order the seeds from other collectors.  Go to www.seedsavers.org
