I got some Lipstick pepper seeds this year - a sweet pepper, which I might try, but I will still probably put them on my trade lists. That's what I always do with free seeds I won't use, or won't use many of.
I just received my seed order with 2 free packets of seeds. one packet of an early tomato called Tonopah and a packet of yellow squash. I' ll plant a couple of the tomato's but don't want to waste the space if I don't like them.

I also got Lipstick pepper from Baker's, and lime green salad tomatoe, and Pickler's pride cucumber mix from Totally Tomatoes. Not sure if I will be growing any of them - I'll try to find some reviews on them.

After researching that Lime Green Salad tomatoe, I found out that it has been around quite a while, and is something created by Tom Wagner, back around the time of Green Zebra, so they may be related. It only grows to to about 3 feet, but this is normal for some determinates, which I normally don't grow. However, last year I grew Sunset Falls, which was even smaller, but produced an incredible amount of delicious tomatoes in a short time, so this year I am growing them in succession, planting them 3 weeks apart. I might try one of these, to see if it produces the same. Reviews say that the flavor is tangy and spicy - sort of the same description often given to green zebras, a favorite of mine. Hopefully, they will be more disease resistant.
Baker Creek included a free pack of Cinnamon Basil seeds with my seed order. If I should plant some, what should I expect for flavor? I love the smell/taste of basil, but I'm a purist. I've never tasted Cinnamon basil.

All I can suggest is plant some and try it! I guess it depends on your space. I have not tasted this one. Here I have a large lot and can plant anything that comes along. You will have to see if you have the space requirements and want to devote some space to this new-comer. Have fun!
