Scarlet emporer was rubbish for me this year ,firestorm and stardust better but not as good germination as last year am hoping to set a second crop perhaps it's the weather((well I've got to blame something cos it can't be my expertise )
Firestorm for me as well Logan. I like them because they dont need as much water as others and they are not reliant on bees for pollination.
Scarlet Emperor nearly always does well for me in the SW of France. Tried several others but they can't manage the hot weather in July and August. If SC loses it's flowers when it's hot then it always does a good crop in October.
After sampling White Lady last year from another allotmenteer I have been converted as the flavour was so good. I had 100% germination and they are growing out in the allotment now and look really healthy.
