So WM is pretty busy, but which one is the reaper? The ones in my pic with the skinny tip?

Not everything with a stinger is a reaper. Scorpions have stingers as well. But scorpions also look like a scruched up bell to me. Reapers should also be really bumpy. Scary looking .

How do you reach this guy to order?
Is he normally slow to answer pm's here?

 

Mike is slammed with orders. He put out an ad here and said the reply was astounding. I don't believe he expected as many orders as he is getting.

He will respond here. Sometimes it might take a message or two.

He also has a Facebook page with a phone number on it. I've never called it before but if there is no reply here I'd hit that number up for sure.

Mikes a real good guy I know he's not ignoring you on purpose. He also mentors kids besides his full time job so I know he's swamped.

Send him another message. Wait a day and then call him.

 

I'm normally fast on the draw. My bad, man. My day job is in the ornamental plant business and our busy time of year is in the spring; everyone in the northeastern US orders plants and trees at once. The upshot is that we're short, so I've been loading enormous palm trees on semis 45 hours a week, and scrambling to keep up with plants and boxes and whatnot. All of which would be fine, but I have a real shortcoming when it comes to managing communications on THP, Facebook, email, texts, etc. Every once in a while, I open a message late at night meaning to respond in the morning and lose track of it.

 

Anyway, sorry I missed this.

The Yellow Brainstrains and Peach Bhuts are pretty easy to spot. The red ones that are shaped like a top are Butch T's. The gnarly, bumpy looking pods are Morugas or Reapers; Morugas tend to be blockier (or as Rex put it, "like a scrunched up bell"). The majority of my Reapers tend to have a pretty pronounced stinger; I try not to send out the ones that don't, which are often the smaller pods formed when the plant has a heavy load of peppers already ripening..

Placed an order with WM Monday. He got back with me within 24 hours and I got notice that my SFRB was put in the mail this morning. Top notch communication considering how busy he is with his work and community service stuff! I'm excited to bite into the peppers being delivered. Kudos, Mike!

Beautiful, beautiful peppers Mike.  Once you're restocked I can't wait to get a Scotch Bonnet Variety box from you.  Props for hooking THIS many people up with so many amazing pods! Much respect ;)

Thanks to all. Plants are pushing out more as we speak. Will have a few new varieties this coming week.

Just wanted to put this out there so no one's unnecessarily worried: the whitish residue you're seeing on the pods is calcium from the irrigation. I haven't sprayed my fruiting plants in months.

Pods were awesome Wicked Mike. We ate a few and I'm fermenting the rest to make sauce. Hopefully they keep me satisfied until my pods ripen. Communication was great and delivery was speedy!

My SFRB came in today. I asked my niece to open the box and send me a picture of the evil inside. WOW is all I can say. WM does it again with GREAT quality pods. Pictured here are Peach Bhuts, Aji Pineapples, and Inca Red Drops. He even sent me a packet of Yellow 7 Pot Brainstrain seeds! Kudos sir, you not only made my day, but got my niece to say, "Gag!!" as she opened the box with gloved hands.

Received my boxes from WM today - wowza! The boxes were absolutely stuffed full of gorgeous pods AND 3 packets of seeds!

 

Being a complete greenhorn to most things pepper, can anyone help I.D. these representative samples so I don't inadvertently bite into something I'm not quite ready for?

 

Thanks a million WM! Awesome!

Amongst a great bonnet variety box I got from Mike was the Chocolate Scotch Bonnet.  I regret not growing this one, top of the list for next season. Love it, thanks again man.

Glad to see that my issue with USPS delivering wilted pods last week was an isolated incident, and that everyone's enjoying this as much as I am.

From left to right: Ají Cito (at ~100k SHUs, the hottest known baccatum variety, but the mildest of the pods pictured), 7 Pot Douglah, Red Bhut Jolokia, Jay's Peach Ghost Scorpion, and 7 Pot Brainstrain Yellow.
