This is our first harvest of the Goronong Chile. These were the tame pods. Some were VERY twisted. Will taste test tomorrow night.

Crazy looking pods but not my personal favorite for taste. I also find that due to all the twists and bends that there are usually a lot of nasty pods once you cut them open
I'd definitely like to hear more opinions on this variety since this was one of the most requested seeds in my collection the last few season

Very cool looking pepper.

Curious, as I've seen you say that on more than one thread - what are your favorites for taste?

I usually love all yellow chinenses. The Cili goronong was the first yellow that really didn't really impress me. Some of my favorites include fatalii, Scotch bonnet TFM, bonda ma jacque, yellow7, Kapowie yellow(KY), Cardi yellow scorpion, Harold's St.Bart, True Jamaican Scotch bonnet, Cumari, Quintisho, Carmine, Morouga yellow

Those are some nice goros man :dance: I think they have a great flavor,but the flavor is really weak compared to other chinenses.They sure do look cool though, all twisted and contorted!

i think a cross with a goronong, something with good flavor and to keep the cool pod shapes would be interesting.

Hi, do you remember me. (I'm from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mex.).
Do you have in stock this variety "Goronong pepper".

Those look great. I have one of these growing. I actually like the taste of the pods. Everyone has different tastes, I guess. Some love the Butch T. Some say it tastes like battery acid. Oh well. Great looking pods. I love the way the pods are all twisty. The buds grow in all random directions, too. Goronong is a funky name for a funky plant. ;)

I too found a higher occurence of nasty pods then just about anyhing else I have grown.. Not a lot, just more then I am used to.The flavor is OK. Good candidate for a cross? Still worth trying if you have not had it.

Cili Goronongs are nice plants and can put out a good yield. They are pretty hot and carry a citrusy, slight pineappleish- playdough like taste. I like em and Ive had a plant hitting the 3yr old mark next spring. The more pods it puts out the more twisted they get, the earlier pods can sometimes get stinger like tails. Some of the pods start to look like the Female version of a Peter Pepper. ;) These peppers make a good yellow dried flake or powder.
