Q: Hello Dave,
Do you know where I can get seeds for an Ulipica pepper? I’ve heard that they beat a habanero hands down, and would like to try and grow some of them in my garden.
A: Hello Rich:
It is doubtful that the Ulupica, thought to be Capsicum eximium, a wild species, is hotter than the habanero. It is a "bird pepper," so the pods are very small. The only source I know of is Seed Savers Exchange. You will have to join the organization and receive a massive catalog to order the seeds from other collectors. Go to www.seedsavers.org
