Some great looking plants and early pods! Here is my plant, I've now ditched the topped plant and chosen my main gladiator... just starting to bud and fork.7553dcb93e01921d5b694eacd88b3b4f.jpg

Nice looking plant, Dennish! The two MoAs I grew last year looked pretty close to that. They started out like BEASTS! Best of luck

Looking good SR! How would you describe the flavor and heat of the Scotch Brains?

Thanks Stickman, I have only eaten the one pod so far, and that was mixed into a beef curry. From what I could tell, I found the flavor to be fruity, with a bit of sweetness. Much more fruity than floral, with the Bonnet flavours quite noticeable. Up there with one of my other favourites, The Yellow 7 Pot which it reminded me of. It'll definitely be in my grow next season.

 

SR.

Thanks!  I planted it early January, straining at the leash for a bigger pot now but will have to wait as another 6 weeks to plant out in the GH here at the earliest.

You are way ahead of mine, which germinated February 15th thru the 18th.

 

I will post some pics tomorrow.

 

EDIT:

 

Here they are at ~ five weeks old:

Bonnets at nine weeks after a couple of weeks back upstairs in the warmth. It's funny how temperatures in the mid 50s makes the leaves so crinkly. They're good sized now.

Some great looking plants! Can't believe you got pods already Paul, is your plant in its final position and are you planning to let them develop?

I've got my first pod set but the plant is still in a small pot (approx 1 litre - half a pop bottle) so I doubt it will amount to much.  I think it's flowering/fruiting early because it's potbound.  Really haven't the heart to remove it, though.

Good news, Dan! Little bushes better than no bushes!

I'm getting pretty antsy for warmer weather, myself. The
long range forecast says Friday night will be the last night
below 40*F so the Manzanos and Rocotos hit the outside
pots this weekend! I need room in the greenhouse!

These MoAa are in 2-liter pots (since early Feb.) and
Will stay there until plant-out into the 10+ gallon pots.
I'm feeding them MorBloom along with light fish fertilizer
So I think I'll let them go.

I think as long as you feed your plants well they
Should be okay, if not giant. Early pods are usually
small and funny shaped anyway, but I'm sure there
are exceptions, and who knows? As I said I'm giving
them MorBloom to help sustain the pod development.

Another pod!

(As posted over on Chillis Galore, hope that's allowed) first fruits forming on the SB MoA plant.  They don't look all that bonnet-like to me, although they are still very small.  The largest one feels very rough and knobbly to the touch.

Lots more flowers (and aphids)
