Nice color Andy, and enough heat to last you at least a month. Keep up the good work! :dance:

 
Thank you! I'm starting to have a good amount in my freezer for when I get to drying and eventually making more jelly.
 

Looking good Andy!
 
Nice to see the rewards ;)

 
Thanks!

Thanks Jamie! We'll see about next year. I'm pleased with the improvement I had this year for sure.
 
 
Just a couple of pepper shots:
 
Here is the harvest from last Monday (September 28).  This was a pretty good sized harvest, especially compared to what I was getting last year.  I'm pleased...

And some individual shots

An Arkansas Peach (Sawyer) - the color is off on the peach ones. They look a lot more peach colored.

One of my best plants has been my Bhut Orange Copenhagen (Coheed) - the pods are picture perfect, but my color is off on this again.

Here is a picture of that Schneider farm Scotch Bonnet. I'm thrilled with this pepper. A great true bonnet.

Brazilian Starfish from pepperlover - beautiful pod

Here is one of the new ones from Judy at pepperlover - the Devil's Brain. It is a really wrinkly looking thing with tons of oil on the inside.

I loved the look and shape of the Ice Scream Scorpion ButchT (Buckeye Pepper) - very cool pepper. One of the pepper draft guys used one as a popper and it almost killed him.

Here is another one of those weird pods off of the Peach 7 Pot plant from Sawyer. The pods are huge and tasty so I am saving seeds.

I got some pods off the C. Praetermissum (Coheed). Hot little guys.

And I also picked a bit of a harvest last night. Two harvests in two weeks. My freezer is getting some pods and I'm happier than last year, but still not fully satisfied.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Schneider Scotch Bonnet makes a perfect picture ... I can understand why you are pleased with this variety

Thank you!
Yep, they turned out to be a nice looking variety, for sure. I just ate a couple of slices of one tonight and really liked the taste too.
 
 
Here are some pics of this week's harvest
 
First, the overall harvest shot:
 
harvest.jpg

It was another good harvest. I've had a few of these now. It's been a much better year than last year for sure.

Here is a yellow scorpion (pepperlover)

yscorp.jpg

I only had one Harold St. Bart Habanero seed germinate this year for some reason (Buckeye Pepper). I isolated that plant and finally got a few beautiful pods from it and saved the seeds from two of them. Here is one of the nice ones:

The Aji Melocoton is a pepperlover special. It look like a large Aji Lemon except peach instead of yellow. The color comes through ok on this picture but really doesn't capture it. I haven't tasted it yet, but it's a baccatum, so it'll be good. It's a cool pepper.

melo.jpg

Here's one of the Pubescens that I got from Coheed - CAP273 Peru. They are orange, and I'm excited to see how one tastes.

peru.jpg

The UBSC brown that I got from Pic1 never turned brown, but they produced beautiful pods. Now they are putting out several with very cool stingers as you can see here.

ubsc.jpg

Sawyer sent me seed for the "Arkansas peach" - they have gotten larger and I wanted to get a shot of that.

And the inside gives you a clue as to how hot they are.

Ok - that's what I have.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just a couple of quick shots for tonight.  We had a big frost about a week and a half ago.
 
Here are the results:
 
frost.jpg

I pulled some of the plants out and put them in pots in the garage. I'll figure out what to overwinter in the next few weeks.

I did get one more harvest before the frost destroyed everything.

Now I'm busy trying to winterize stuff - keep rabbits and deer away from fruit trees, figure out how I want my raised beds set up and where. Figure out where to get the manure and fill from... Busy time


Anyway, thanks for stopping by!


Righteous heat!

Hi Andy looks like you had a ok year great looking pods
How would you describe the flavor of the Schneider farm Scotch Bonnet?
Those Arkansas Peach look mistakenly harmless lol

Every dead Japanese beetle is a victory!

Hey, Andy, glad to see you had a good year after all.  Next year should be even better.

 

 Here is another one of those weird pods off of the Peach 7 Pot plant from Sawyer. The pods are huge and tasty so I am saving seeds.

How is the heat for that brown not-Peach 7P?  It originally came from a Burgundy 7P that produced the most colors of any variety I've had, peach, red, caramel, as well as the expected burgundy.  This brown one is something new, but definitely looks like something to try to propagate, especially if the flavor and heat are there.

 

 Sawyer sent me seed for the "Arkansas peach" - they have gotten larger and I wanted to get a shot of that.

Hah!  Yeah, it has Carolina Reaper in its ancestry, so the potential for heat is there.  I'm glad it came through as peach.  My notes say it should have a small, tight seed cluster, so I'm a little disappointed this one looks more bhut-like.  Oh well, both this one and the other are low-F number generations, so a lot of variability is to be expected.

The year turned out pretty good - especially compared to last year. 
As far as that Scotch Bonnet - it seems to be that real typical scotch bonnet flavor - very good, a bit, I don't know people say smoky, so yeah... not really fruity.  But a good taste and habanero level heat.

I hope so, although all of my woodchips have disintegrated and the garden is now basically a cover crop of clover.  I'm trying to get wood around for raised beds, we'll see how that goes...
 
That not Peach 7P had maybe a habanero level heat, maybe a bit lower.  It was the first fresh pod my son tried and actually got him to try other peppers so that was cool.  I really liked the taste on that one - not your normal chocolate taste, more fruity.  Good flavor.  The Arkansas Peach had a so so flavor, but it's a pretty color and holy cow it's hot.  Really cool pepper.  Thanks again for all the seeds!
 
 
So I got an awesome package in the mail on Halloween from Romy6 (Jamie)
 
gift.jpg

Some awesome varieties in here, including a Bhutlah clamshell and chocolate bubblegum. Thanks Jamie!


Here's a shot of the freezer bags with most of my harvests in them. Now I need to get processing and drying. Not too bad this year.

Alright - that's what I have. Getting towards the end of another year and another growlog. Wow...

Thanks for stopping by!

Nice! Looks like enough peppers to last the winter.
