Hey guys,

 

What are your favourite peppers that grow in clusters? Chinense and Annuum? I'd love to add a few good ones to my grow next season, but I'm undecided. 


It's a little chilly.

I think he means like these:

Santaka
Rooster Spur
Poinsettia

Yeah, that's right. Rooster Spur actually looks pretty nice.

Some of the upright cluster peppers have a really cool look to them.  I've been thinking about either Rooster Spur or Santaka for next season. The Rooster Spur are little guys though, which has me leaning toward the slightly bigger podded Santaka.

 

Cicek Biber is definitely on my list

Hey, B3rnd! Been a while. I hope everything is fantastic!

I don't know toooooo much about clustering varieties of peppers, but aren't most clusters considered ornamentals? That's not to say that ornamentals don't have culinary value...but IME, the few I've tried seem to be a tough skin wrapped around an immense seed-ball with little to no flesh.

Clusters:
Throughout the past few years, I've spotted a variety growing and searched for it, but couldn't find...really....too much info on this particular pepper. Last year, I asked Justin W. about them and he said he DID have seeds for this, but could only get a couple pods to set....so he had no new seeds, but he had the originals that he received from a vendor.
"Wanna give it a whirl......?"
"Yes. Yes I do."

(Here's the conversation:
http://thehotpepper....2017/?p=1477658)

I started 2 seeds, got 2 plants, one went in the garden, the other went in a pot in full sun 8+ hours a day. Not too much from the garden plant (lots of shade, compared), but the Sun-Plant has sunburn on the calyces....ONLY THE CALYCES....EACH AND EVERY CALYX!!! It really works out in the for the color scheme.

I originally thought this variety ripened to red. This plant is a Caramel. If red IS the origin color, how lucky am I to get my favorite pod-color on an awesome looking plant that DOES drop a ton of blossoms, but those dropped blossoms are like dropping leaves: useless and well stocked with replacements. Lol.

The first pod to come off went to a member here in an SFRB, so I know nothing about the insides or flavor profile. I isolated a couple pods, and of course, those pods are smaller than tiny....so zero seeds...at least in this one. (A night pic, too).

I WILL have seeds for you, Justin. Just not ISO. But they should be close enough....with all the clusters, THAT plant is probably a father to more than just one plant out there. lol.

:woohoo:
