I've already got seed saved from 70 different varieties. That leaves 30 or so to go, which is pretty good for the end of July. I'd love to save seeds from eggplant - each of my plants has one large fruit with a big black "X" - but have to wait for the fruit to turn a golden color, which indicates that the seeds will germinate next year.
The sweet peppers are beginning to show their ripe colors. Chocolate Bell is going chocolate brown, Candy Corn, I am delighted to say, changed from cream to orange to red (as hoped). Amethyst and Fire Opal are fading from lavender to....we shall see. A few of the super hots went red and seed was saved. And there are 60 odd colorful, small pot ornamental hot peppers in a riot of colors that need to be attended to for seed saving.
For those seedling customers who are reading this blog, I've got some questions.
If you are growing any of the Big Boy F2 plants, what kind of fruit sizes, shapes and colors did you get?
If you are growing Arkansas Traveler from me, did you get a purple, or pink?
Is anyone experiencing results different from the descriptions?
If you are growing Abraham Lincoln, what sort of fruit did you get? (size/color)
What did you think of Lemon Drop/Tiny Tim Yellow/Egg Yolk cherry tomatoes?
If you grew Cherokee Green from me, how did the fruit turn out?
