Several years ago, while working for a greenhouse, I became aware of the Gypsy Pepper. Even green, it was one of the absolute sweetest peppers I had ever tasted and was delicious in flavor as well. I decided to put dehybridizeing them on my to-do list. I have not had the chance to do this task yet and it occurred to me to ask if perhaps anyone else has already done so. I know sometimes people dehybridize the plant breeds they love so that they aren't dependent on the seed company to get them. Has anyone here already done so? If not, I am also curious what plants people have dehybridized!

There are many companies that sell open pollinated/heirloom veggies. Have you tried that route first?

I have been trying a number of them over the years, but thus far never found one with the perfect blend of traits that I enjoy so much out of the Gypsy Pepper. A few have come close though.

Thank you so much for this information! I'm planning to get a copy of their catalog and am excited to find that these are already in existence. It saves me a lot of time and gives me an OP variety of one of the best peppers I have ever eaten and cooked with.
