I picked up some Datil pepper seeds on my last trip to St. Augustine, FL. The Minorcan pepper does quite well there and was brought to the region by the Portugese. Anyway, I finally got around to starting the seeds and they are a PITA to start. The germination rate is low and slow, but I successfully got about 10 plants started.
I'll post some pics when they get big enough to see. The pepper are hot but not unbearable and being small sized they are great for pickling to make hot vinegar for greens.
Seeds are available on Amazon as well as locations in St. Augustine.
