I can hook you up with some seeds for an SASE as well. But make sure to have the right postage if you send since it is a big increase when shipping international.

What I like about it is the plant is pretty productive, the peppers are a good size, crunchy, watery, initially sweet, followed by a little heat. They are great for just about anything. I eat them fresh, in sauces, salads, salsas and more. If you send a SASE I can send you some seeds. I have another called Puya, which is really productive, and great for spice or sauce, however, I didn't like them too much. If you'd like them I can include some in the SASE.

Other recommendations: Poblano, Aji Limon, Cayenne, Tequila Sunrise, and Bulgarian Carrot Pepper.
I had to look up several of these chilis
Chimayo -- Didn't know it as this but I do know the dried form, Molido

aji limon and tequila sunrise are both new to me, and never had the bulgarian carrot though I have heard of it.

I get some of my pepper seeds from

Tomato Growers Supply

Pepper Gal

Pepper Joe

Kitazawa seed for Asian peppers

If the peppers do well, then I save seed. It is really easy. Just remember to use gloves when handling the hot ones.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

I have stupidly handled hot pepper seeds I saved and later gone and rubbed my eyes and nose and other parts of my face. Even from 7 years ago, all these years later, they still retain oils to do some damage. Not like handling a fresh super hot and then rubbing the eyes or going to the bathroom :lol: , but still uncomfortable.
