Just to add to this topic, this year I have grown plants from the seeds out of some of the chillies Sally sent me. Carribean red did not germinate, but Aji lemon drop and Jamaican Yellow have grown well, and the fruits look at least true to type. There's still scope for surprises in the tasting I guess.

I grew some of my saved picanti chillies, along with a few seed from a packet I saved.

The ones from the packet germinated well, produced large plants and good size fruit which we have been harvested for a while (used as an alternative to peppers).

The seed from the saved chillies resulted in germination but very small plants, with some very small fruit.

I've bought a new packet for next year!
