Where can I buy Carlison pepper seeds?

Post by cordyman » Mon Jan 28, 2013 9:21 pm

Used to devour these in Turkey with everymeal, such a quality sweet pepper, with a little bit of heat. Can't find the seeds anywhere though, strange considering its one of the most popular chilli peppers in Turkey.

CARLISTON
Species: Annuum Origin: Turkey Heat: sweet
Add to my growing list

A 6in long and thin walled early sweet pepper from Turkey. This pepper has a nice strong 'green pepper' flavour and ripens very early to lime green, then more slowly to red. In Turkey it is dried and ground to make a rich sweet paprika.

Strange growth.... Climbing with aerial roots. Says they are evergreen, so they are quite cool tolerant then ? Turkey is not the hottest place in winter. Sounds like something good for a cool greenhouse overwinter and climbing up the fence next to the deck for summer, together with my Sweet Million Tomatoes, salad from plant to plate icon_thumright

Edit: just re-read, and say tropical with humid conditions, so maybe not a cool greenhouse. Perhaps grown as a summer annual then.
Best regards
