Who is Christopher Phillips?
If you grow Capsicums, chillis or hot peppers, you will have already grown strains introduced to the hobby by Chris. Imagine if Raiders of the Lost Ark was actually about finding new hot peppers. I’m sure the movie would star Christopher Phillips in the role of Michigan Jones (he`s not from Indiana). I remember him telling me about the time he wrote more than 50 emails over a period of 2 years to someone in the Caribbean who had a strain of hot pepper he was interested in. And got the same back. That`s the thing, he makes contact with people from all over the world in an enthusiastic, excited, infectious way. The contacts quickly become friends, then deeper than just friends, they are co-conspirators. He has a knack with people and woos them with his knowledge, enthusiasm and plain old-fashioned goodness. The seeds he finds and grows soon become available to anyone who asks for them, for free. One of his most recent exploits brought us the Cappuccino Tepin from Mexico, so if you are growing that, think of Chris.
