Hello. I'm thinking about varieties of chillies I should grow this year. Previous season I grew following:

 

* Carolina reaper

* Habanero orange

* Bhut Jolokia yellow

* 7 Pot Jonah

 

Think I'll drop 7 Pot Jonah for this year as I really didn't like it. Would you recommend any additional pepper? I like to make different kinds of sauce and experiment with it.

You might try a brown variety, I would recommend the Jamaican Hot Chocolate Habanero.

Was thinking about habanero chocolate yes. Are they any good for hot sauce?

Probably, but they are great for jerk chicken or pork rubs.

I grew choc habs for several seasons a while back. Never sauced them, so I can't speak to that, instead I'd dry and powder them. I liked the powders fine, but what I noticed is choc hab powder has a distinct flavor profile and some people really really like it.   I find it particularly good on roasted corn and other roasted vegetables.  I can imagine it's really good in rubs too, as @alkhall suggests.

What heat level are you looking for? I'm a big fan of the fatalli and Bahamian Goat.
