Here we grow again! Better to get this started now, a variety voted on, find a vendor and get the seeds ordered! 

 

Same rules as 2017:

 

1. Seeds hit dirt no sooner than Jan 1 2018

2. Germinate and grow as many as you want, but pick only one to be harvested from and weighed. 

3. All grow styles and techniques welcome.

4. All harvests are to be weighed, recorded, photographed and posted as they occur.

5. Contest ends Jan 1 2019 @ 12:01 am. Whomever harvests the most weight off one plant during the 365 day period is crowned the Growdown Throwdown king!

6. Honor system only. No cheating. You lie and I'll KNOW! 

 

 

Now, let the voting begin.

Awesome! There's a few that I think would work great. Have you guys thought about having it narrowed down to a few? For example, people could compete with Brazilian Starfish, Yellow Brain Strain, and Aji Fantasy. Maybe that would get complicated.

Thanks for organizing this again.

I'd be happy to PP a few $ to offset costs.

No worries! We're cutting it close this year! ha

Dunno maybe another few days for voting to really get going and we will call it so everyone can get seeds.

Way too complicated. Easier if we just all vote on one and go balls to the wall on that one variety. I mean, I ain't scared but still...

Think we will end the voting poll tonight when the clock strikes midnight. That will give us 15-16 days to sort out seed acquisition.

Looks like the resident Pepperheads are going with "Mo Hottah, Mo Bettah!" this year.  Since I already have a 3rd year Fatalii, I I'll vote for the YELLOW BRAIN STRAIN !!

If Fatalii or Yellow Brain Strain win, I could possible provide seeds. Should have plenty

Well...  I'd prefer a big baccatum or annuum pod, maybe one of those crazy mid-east varieties from Pepperlover.  But stupid-hot works too!  :)

I don't know about the taste of brain strain, but I grew fatalii before and the taste was too much like habanero which I dislike...


...but I might be wrong...

If you don't like Fatalii, you'll be happy to know the Yellow Brain Strain is just like that and for me, at least, they trade back and forth on heat level. Different burns but sometimes I swear Fatalii is the hottest pepper I've put in my mouth. The thing thats great about them is how the flavor lasts all day, even in burps...ha

Two of my favorite peppers besides certain asian annums and peruvian white chinense
