What interest me is the hot peppers from Ghana and the story behind them. In case you're interested I have the genuine Wiri Wiri from Guyana, which I suspect could be an Amerindian cultivar.  John.

Hello All,

    I walked into our college greenhouse today to check on some hot pepper plants from Ghana that I have growing there (a story of their own), and noticed a fragrance.  It had rotten egg and more-than-usually-smoth fecal notes.  The source was an Amorphophallus inflorescence.  This was an unexpected first-bloom flowering of a plant from a seed from James Symon (barring errors, which are unlikely within our local context).  The seeds were originally identified as A. gigas, sent along with A. titanum seeds.

   Assistance with identification will be much appreciated (I'm assuming that it's not A. gigas).  Here's a link to photos on Flickr:
