I was goofing around and ran across the Federal Seed Act, which sets forth truth-in-labeling restrictions on both garden and agricultural seed. This led me to the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) which is responsible for assuring compliance to these truth-in-labeling restrictions. The AMS led me to the Seed Regulatory and Testing Branch (STRB), which, in addition to performing testing of seeds for the AMS, also maintains a Variety Name List. And who said our government over-complicates things?
That let me to what I sought: [url=https://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/ams.fetchTemplateData.do?template=TemplateN&navID=VarietyNameList&rightNav1=VarietyNameList&topNav=&leftNav=FairTradingRegulations&page=SeedTestingVarietyNameList&resultType=&acct=lsgeninfo]Variety Name List[/url]. My mind was boggled, so I decided to share this with everyone.
For peppers alone, there are 66 MS Word 2007 pages of varieties. I kid you not. This is a just-for-fun posting, btw. I tried to actually scan all the varieties of peppers, and I only made it to page 5 or 6
