Hi everyone! Greetings from Bangalore, India!!

I live in Bangalore, India, and try to grow greens (spinach, rocket, lettuce, amaranth, etc) and chillis (currently trying to source source erjingtiao seeds - it was a post about these seeds from @bgardner that brought me to this forum) in raised rectangular containers. I can see the depth of experience that members of this forum have with square foot gardening, so am really looking forward to the learning.

I appreciate that the weather patterns in most US cities will be different from Bangalore, but I am sure I can sill learn a lot. Would be great to connect with other members from India or Mexico, if any (Bangalore is at a simiar latitude to San Salvador in Mexico).

Best wishes!!

Welcome sb20!

It looks like your weather patterns will be roughly similar to states in the Southeast like Florida. Though Florida is at sea level while Bangalore is 3000 feet up.

So what are these "erjingtiao" seeds? It's going to take me all day just to learn how to spell that Smile

Greetings from Bangalore Empty Erjingtiao Chillies

Thanks, Mark! Will check out Florida weather patterns and growing conditions to see what can be learnt.

The Erjingtiao chilli (my 7-day moratorium prevents any external link for more info on these Smile ) is a long chilli originally from the Sichuan province in China. It is not very hot, but has a very pleasing fruity flavour along with its moderate heat.

I have eaten and cooked with them in Sichuan dishes, and tried to germinate seeds from store-bought dried erjingtiao chillis, without success. Hence the quest for seeds with a decent germination rate. Would love to be able to grow them at home.

Oh, chili's! They might be grown almost anywhere. In fact, my first search turned up an ebay site that was selling them out of Fostoria Ohio. Maybe OhioGardener can tell us if there is anything special going on up there.

I found a second site on Ebay that claims to sell them for $4 for 30 seeds. But of course they ship to the US (they have a distributor there).

Possibly there sellers on ebay.in ?

Mark, that listing was for the Little Orchid's Garden Farm Market in Fostoria, just up the road from us. I don't think they are in business any more - the last listing was from back in 2018, or so.  They used to sell both the peppers and the seeds.

Many of the Thai and Chinese grocery stores here sell Er Jing Tiaoer pepper, but none of them sell the seeds. I think the peppers they sell are hybrid since the seeds in them won't grow.

Hi Scorpio Rising! This old post by bgardner was what led me to this forum (and how glad am I that it did).

Unfortunately, he did not post on whether his experiments with germinating the seeds from store-bought dried erjingtiao chillis were successful or not. I do know that my attempts have been futile. I have tried several methods, including pre-soaking, scarifying the seeds, keeping them wrapped in moist paper for long periods, etc, but to no avail.

Thanks for the referral, though.

SB20, I understand that the Er Jing Tiao is very sensitive to soil temps for germination. From an article on cultivating Er Jing Tiao:

The seed germination temperature is 23–30°C (74-86°F); if below 15°C (59°F) can not germinate. Pepper seeds require higher temperatures, and they grow more slowly when the temperature is relatively low. At the beginning of the flowering season, the temperature is 20–25°C (68-77°F) during the daytime and 15–20°C (59-68°F) during the night.

Thanks, OhioGardener!! Will try again in a few months when the temperature cools down a bit, and probably make note of ambient temp. Fingers crossed :-)

Hi Scorpio Rising!! I thought with a handle like Scorpio Rising, chillies would have been your thing :-). What do you typically grow?

Not only the ambient temp, but the soil temp is most important for germination.  If you don't have a soil thermometer, you should get one. Check the temp of the soil in the top 6" (15 cm) to ensure it is in the range of 23–30°C (74-86°F) which will bring the seeds out of dormancy so they can germinate.
