#1558692 Yellow Scotch Bonnets

Posted by Guitarman on 08 June 2018 - 05:50 PM

Debunking the debate on the Semillas' TFM, I talked to Mr.Allen Boatman, who supplied Dr.Merle with the seeds.
Those were two different types:

TFM: Trenton Farmers Market

TJSB: True Jamaican Scotch Bonnet (true form)

I don't know if they got crossed, mislabeled or what, but Allen told me thate the ones on Semillas site resemble more the TJSB.

Edit: Peter told me he is working to have Trenton Farmers Market on sale as well

There are so many varieties of this gorgeous pepper: Jamaica, MOA, Papa Dreadie, TFM (Trenton Farmer Market), Papa Joe's, Foodarama, Burkina Yellow and list goes on...
Which ones have you tried?
Have you guys got a favourite one?

Pics are welcome! :)


#1554899 need recomendations on super hot peppers to grow

Posted by Guitarman on 22 May 2018 - 02:48 PM

As long as some will say that some superhots are faster than others, truth is that all Chinense take forever to grow.
Baccatum too, and Pubescens even worse.
Just start your seeds earlier, take advantage of indoor growing as much as you can, and pick the superhots you like!

#1545092 Sukari seeds wanted

Posted by Guitarman on 13 April 2018 - 03:50 PM

How did you get them shipped to US if the company only ships to Scandinavian countries? I'd like to grow them too, I think Wicked Mike has it on his list as well.

#1529213 What's the hottest thing you're growing this year?

Posted by Guitarman on 18 February 2018 - 04:39 PM

Primo, Big Black Mama, BTR, Apocalypse, Moruga Scorpion, Chocolate Bhutlah...

Pick your poison! :D

#1509459 What is the sweetest least floral of really hot pepper varieties?

Posted by Guitarman on 06 December 2017 - 07:33 PM

Scotch Bonnets for hot.
Fatalii for hot-to-super.
7 Pot for superhots.

#1508297 What color is Pepper X ?

Posted by Guitarman on 01 December 2017 - 06:50 PM

But you just wasted some more. :P

It's more of an investment rather than a waste ;)

#1508267 What color is Pepper X ?

I just can't believe we're still wasting time taking all this crap

#1508210 LAST 2017 SEEDS SELL-OUT: 15 varieties, 20$ + shipping

#1507275 what is the hottest pepper in your mind?

Posted by Guitarman on 27 November 2017 - 08:11 AM

You're right, and every
Time I talk shit about these clowns,I realize that i'm feeding the hype anyway. So, yeah, they're doing SOME things right, but they're doing a lot of things wrong, too. What they're doing is probably great for their sales, but it's bad for the hobby, especially for first time growers. Chile cultivation is confusing enough for the neophyte. The fact that the most well-known chile celebrity right now is a compulsive liar who likes to threaten lawsuits is only going to exacerbate that reality.. That the Reaper is so incredibly popular while being so erratically unstable is only going to discourage ppl. Every 4th post on a FB group in on is a rookie asking "these were supposed to be Reapers; what are they?" I guess Ed's Lawyers get right on the cease & desist letters after that, LOL....

+1 on your thoughts!

#1506419 How many next hottet pepper in the world???

Posted by Guitarman on 22 November 2017 - 04:42 PM

Louisiana Creeper, people who tried it say it's the hottest thing they ever put in their mouth.
No claims btw, needs to be stabilized first.
Chocolate Bhutlah too made a name itself in this talk

#1506342 what is the hottest pepper in your mind?

Posted by Guitarman on 22 November 2017 - 03:59 AM

Pepper X at 3mil SHU is BS, unless there's documentation from a reputable lab.

As for the debate about the hottest, there are just too many, and pepper can vary so much that I think it's impossible to just stick to one: Brain Strains, Morugas, the Mamas, Bhutlahs, Apocalypse, all in their red or chocolate variants, just to name a few

#1505792 Primo released some new pepper seeds

Posted by Guitarman on 19 November 2017 - 05:55 AM

1. As far as I know, Troy's seeds are isolated.

2. Prices are in the same range as some of the biggest names (Duffy, Puckerbutt, Hippyseed etc)

3. You should consider the value of buying seeds directly from the creator, an expert too (Troy is an horticolturist)

4. I consider buying from him a double investment: I get quality seeds and help Troy in developing new projects.

5. Should I spend extra bucks, they'd be in seeds: worst thing for a grower is putting time and money over a plant which finally reveals untrue.

I've grown Primo plants from Troy's seeds the last 2 season, and I got some of the healthiest plants ever.

I think we should be happy about this release, instead of being here questioning about prices, but that's just my opinion.
It's no secret Troy is one of the people I respect the most in this pepper community.

#1494766 Could Moruga Scorpion be the hottest?

Posted by Guitarman on 28 September 2017 - 03:46 PM

I like your point AJ. When it comes to science, Universities are the most reputable.
And when it comes to Pepper science, no one beats CPI.

To me the Moruga Scorpion is the hottest ever tested, I don't care what Guinness says.

Also, the Moruga has an awesome flavour!

#1494166 Ed Currie's newest hottest pepper

Posted by Guitarman on 26 September 2017 - 03:25 PM

Most of the normies i know still think that the Ghost is the record-holder, LOL.  

To me is the Moruga Scorpion, tested by CPI
