Yep me too going to order the Bolivian giant apparently similar too bell peppers going to put 1 in the tunnel & possibly train a couple up an apple tree figured may as well minimise the shade cast by having 2 crops on it

I just ordered the normal sized ones worth a try to see what they grow like and taste like .. If all goes well and anyone wants to try some i will save some seeds from them looks like they produce plenty of black seeds ..

Yes i also read about the exploding ones made me laugh when i read about them  I had visions of the health and safety concious  gardener  wearing eye protection  a hard hat and a stab vest when picking them     ROL :-))it says the seeds can be propelled a considerable distance aswell .   cwl:-]
