have: have: macedonian pepper mix free for sasbe
I have a seed mix of several varieties of Macedonian hot and sweet peppers that I gathered there when I was in the Peace Corps. The seed is from 2008, and germinated at about 80% last year. I'd like to share it with others, as it is getting old.
The mix contains-
Najluti- medium heat 2 inch fruit with an upward growing habit, good flavor fresh.
Feferoni- the ultimate pickling pepper, 3 to 4 inch cayenne type peppers, medium heat.
Rezha- heavily striated hot peppers 6-8 inches, (the name means "engraved"). Outstanding sweet flavor and intense creeping burn. Best if roasted on the grill or dried and powdered. Very hot for a c. annuum. Very unique pepper largely unknown outside of Macedonia.
Ajvarski- sweet red peppers with excellent flavor, bred for roasting, but outstanding for any cooking. The Macedonians roast them, peel them, grind them up, and mix them with oil into a paste they call ajvar. They eat it on bread like peanut butter.
Kurtovska Kapija- Another sweet red pepper with a more cylindrical profile. A common commercial variety.
Unknown Sweet- While Ajvarski ripens from green to brown to red, this one ripens from green to yellow to red. It has thicker flesh, has a slimmer profile, and withstands hail better than any sweet pepper I've grown.
The seed is all mixed together with a majority of hot peppers. This isn't good seed for people interested in trading and saving. It is good seed if somebody wants to grow a row of great tasting peppers.
