The pictures certainly seem to suggest that he has pods on his plants...

I don't think they are mature pods. They are supposed to look like this:8402b0bf9d805c446ce843deb6418adc.png

They might still be viable, in not really sure.

Well, as I say, I'm not really fussed about growing these. I have two different Reapers, two future challengers and something secret in my window box already. I just want to be among the first tasters to get an idea of what it's actually like.

I guess those pods might not be fully representative of the strain, though.

Neil Price just mentioned to me that he has been "telling" people its a 7pot Infinity cross.

 

Says he'll send out pods for review at the end of the season.

 

I'm keeping an open mind about this pepper beating the Reaper regardless of the funky press.

 

I've had plenty of pods hotter than Reapers. It should be no surprise if this is real IMO

 

Deadly? I think not

I knew about one he had been working on for a while, the hp56 death strain, but he said he would not release it unless the record was broken by someone else first. That leads me to think that this dragons breath pepper might be the real deal.

Certainly Ed is worried if that image is real but is this the Death Strain, the Gator or something entirely new?

Hmm. Good question.

Then there is primos Louisiana creeper. I'm sure if the title is up for grabs, he will put his best foot forward.

My fingers are crossed for Chocolate Bhutlah SM.  I figure since Standandfire and Puckerbutt are working together, the announcement might be about Standandfire's pepper.  Nothing against Mr. Curry.  Just that he got it last time so I am rooting for Standandfire.

 

BTW: With official announcements of attempts at this title, I really think it is getting weird.  Around these parts, we call that fixing on getting ready to start.

What varieties would they be? Just out of interest..

Would be cool to see the record beaten, just because it's been a while.

The hippy seed company is taking a stab at it as well.

"Frequently asked questions:

I want to know the guidelines for a record.

If you wish to break an existing record or set a new record, and want to view the guidelines, you will need to submit an online application first.

Each application for a new record title is reviewed individually by an expert and we are unable to tell you if your record can be accepted by email or phone.

If you need some ideas on what to choose, take a look at What Makes a Record or explore our records for inspiration.

Also visit our guide to evidence page to get an idea of the evidence you need to provide as part of your record attempt.

Please note, we cannot respond to postal enquiries."

So you can't know the rules until you've already entered? That's dumb.

Given how almost nothing is said about the 7-Pot Brainstrain's rank as Guinness' 3rd hottest, I doubt it. Only Peppers that were once the hottest get publicity.
