So these arrived a couple of days ago. It is a bit of a late start, but should be interesting!

I've planted half a dozen seeds from my dried ones as well. I know they're hot but they also tasted surprisingly similar to dried raspberries.

It's going to be super interesting to try and taste them fresh if they grow.

My dragons breath seeds from Chili Bob popped up just fine.  Fair germination rate.  But they seemed to hate metal halide.  I moved them to the hps side but they didn't purk up.  Moved them next to normal white light florescent (old school) and they really picked up.  Cant imagine hps and mh urking them much, maybe it was the intensity.  No clue, other peppers doing fine in the same spots.

 

Tasted like dried raisins... I like raisins.... So maybe the hype trns out to be wrong, I'll still have something tasty.  See, you can win with new strains.

Was really just trying to see if they were gonna be something different or what the pics on the net and stories say they were, just put them in a cup of soil and put em in the sun. They are growing really well and as far as seeds go doing as good as any out there. Maybe it will be what the hype is, if not, then a new strain as Aj, all good in my book.

Seems the debate is over for the moment, based on the news I read at pepperhead:

Will wait till there is official results about the Dragon's Breath or the anticipated results of Pepper X

Oh, the poor grammatical press releases by these peppers claiming the other peppers making incorrect claims about peppers!

My seeds seem to have been duds but they came from dried pods so it's not too unexpected.

Seems interesting but I am at 39 cultivars for this season. Not sure if I want my 40th cultivar to be this one.

Funny thing is, one of those dubious claims was from Ed himself with good ol' Pepper X - what with it starting off mustard, then they announce that no, it isn't mustard, which is convenient because a lot of people were doubting that a mustard pepper could be as hot as he claimed, and then we wait for Guinness to announce it officially in November, here we are in April, and still no sign of Pepper X - The World's Hottest Pepper.

Not even no sign. We have a new record on the Reaper in its place.

Its what has got me really confused. Ed would have had to have lodged the attempt, or re-attempt or whatever you want to call it, either back before Pepper X got hyped or around then. So if he was really sending in the Pepper X to Guinness, as he said multiple times, then why on earth did he send in the Reaper as well??? I'm fairly certain that there was no "as well" - Pepper X was never submitted to Guinness. It was all just a marketing ploy, to get attention back to him and his business and his peppers. And it sure as hell has worked.
