I don't see anyone in this thread is saying it's a Primo, or another chile pepper in disguise. Maybe I missed it. It seems many see the "naga x habanero" cross claim as quite perplexing - given the strong similarities to other varieties. Either way, it's cool to see a new cross get the record. Congrats!
All we are saying. Is how in the world to you get a Reaper from a Habanero and a Naga??? The two together just dont add up. It reminds me of breeding a barracuda with a dolphin and somehow you get a great white shark. Im not saying its not true it just doesnt make sense.
I think it's pretty clear what the intention is: secrecy. That's his choice and a reflection of personal style. I think some people on here are not frustrated that he's done the work of making the cross and then growing out massive amount of plants, or with the people who've helped him, but with the lack of transparency regarding the varieties involved in the cross. Again, that's just personal style, and it pisses some people off.
Many of us are aware of the pool of superhots (i.e., TSMB, Brainstrain, Douglah etc.), we are also aware of how stressing particular plants affects capsaicin levels. It doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to imagine which peppers could be used or which growing techniques help get the high SHU counts. "Habanero" is probably code for 7 Pot or Trinidad Scorpion of some sort, "Naga" is probably code for Dorset Naga or something like that.
The 7 Pot Primo itself is a similar kind of cross, but the creator of that has let people know how it came about. That's just his style.
