#1632147 Can anyone bring me up to speed as to what has happened since 2011?

Posted by Guitarman on 15 May 2019 - 04:29 PM

When I was last involved in this community the Butch T was just crowned king, I know that the Reaper is the current "official" king.
 
Are there any major things (developments, events) I should know about?
 
I sorted the forum by most viewed and read the threads about the Reaper in 2013 ... that was, interesting, to say the least.
 
I am curious as to what new varieties I should be looking at; especially for heat + flavour. I have just ordered a bunch of seeds from THSC that I thought were interesting from his video reviews.
 
What are Bubblegums? I understand that they bleed colour into the stem, and kind of taste sweetish but where did they come from?
 
It is a little strange being back here and reading my old posts, I am no where close to the person I was 10 years ago.
 
I am also sitting on a lot of the original (first generation) superhot seeds that I accumulated during 2009-2010, I had a habit of collecting seeds and enjoying the collection of them rather than planting them, I plan on trying to get them germinated under lights during the winter (Australia) if I can.
 
Might even start a Youtube channel or something to document the process. Would this be of interest to anyone? For nostalgia's sake of germinating old seeds?
 
Anyways, stay good, be excellent to each other.
 
It is very humbling to be back here.


Welcome back!
To summarize:

- The reaper is a Primo
- Fatalii is still one of the best
- A lot of crazy, unstable crosses
- Great Habanero/Scotch Bonnet types are gaining interest (Carbonero is a bomb)

Personally I'm stepping back to the old fashioned varieties, both for superhot and mild/sweet peppers.

#1610730 Is Jamaican Hot Chocolate a hab?

Posted by Guitarman on 03 February 2019 - 03:11 PM

Scotch Bonnet, Bahamian Goat among them.
Then is subjective, but I've heard only good things from pepper people who tried a lot.
I'm staying in the Chinense-Habanero heat level Peppers: if you extend the list to other genus or Scoville Units then you Can add many more.


#1610723 Is Jamaican Hot Chocolate a hab?

I'm glad this topic was opened, Jamaican Hot Chocolate is so underrated.
It may deserve a mention among the best tasting overall, along with the Fatalii and few others.
Just my opinion.


#1610378 Finally mainstream gives recognition to a true grower.

Posted by Guitarman on 01 February 2019 - 06:13 PM

Hope it's only one of many recognitions to come for Troy, just a great guy!


#1610249 Pepper X

Posted by Guitarman on 01 February 2019 - 06:21 AM

 
I don't even understand why people see Ed as a reliable source at this point. Any degree of reading around will tell you that other chilli farms have far more consistent Reapers than he does. If I'm gonna get ripped off buying Pepper X seeds, at least I can claim that I did it first by going somewhere independant and not fund his explotative bullcrap.
After all, one of you guys sent me real Caramel Reaper seeds long before Ed had any for sale so, in my mind, a legit Pepper X, should such a thing even exist, is just as likely to pop up in some random 3rd party's collection as it is to come from him.


Totally agree: had Reaper and Chocolate Bhutlah from PB, which is supposed to have them for exclusive, and both turned out inconsistent.
Never buying from the guy again.


#1610066 Must have peppers of 2019

Posted by Guitarman on 31 January 2019 - 02:04 PM

Zapotec Jalapeno
Brazilian Starfish
All the Morugas and Brainstrains you can Imagine.


#1609843 Top Seed Vendors

Posted by Guitarman on 30 January 2019 - 06:23 PM

Not in that specific order:
-Refining Fire Chiles by Jim Duffy
-White Hot Peppers by Justin White
-Semillas by Peter Merle
-Hippyseed Company by Neil Smith

I basically grow only from their seeds.
I'd put in Primo's Peppers by Troy Primo but only sells his strain, so it's not comparable to the others in terms of varieties.
Quality is in top by the way.


#1609563 Is Jamaican Hot Chocolate a hab?

Posted by Guitarman on 29 January 2019 - 05:48 PM

I've wondered the same thing for a long time.  That's kind of like is a chocolate scorpion the same as a chocolate moruga scorpion? I have no clue. LOL


In this case not. The Chocolate Moruga Scorpion is a variant of the Red one, is more corrugated than the Chocolate Scorpion, which has a smooth skin and is usually less hot than the Moruga.

As for the JHC I think It Can be put in the Habanero family.


#1609015 Pepper X

Posted by Guitarman on 27 January 2019 - 12:41 PM

I think I said this in every related topic. I'll repeat it one more, hopefully last, time: pepper x is BS.
Stop asking, please.

#1580451 Hottest, most oily, gnarly RED Superhot

Posted by Guitarman on 07 September 2018 - 12:19 PM

Hi guys!

 

I've almost completed my wishlist for next year, I'll have my Morugas, BBM, Brainstrains as well as some Bonnets and a few mild Annuums.

 

I'm looking for the final piece, a plant or two that I'll grow just for fun: I'm usually reluctant to unstable hybrids, but for this one I'm ready to take some risks.

 

I've already grown reapers, Apocalypse, BTR and many others but I was thinking about some Chad Soleski's creations like:

 

  • BHUTLAH SCORPION
  •  
  • BHUTLAH BUBBLEGUM
  •  
  • MRM x 7 POT BROWN
  •  
  • WRECKING BALL x 7 POT BROWN
  •  
  • DEATH SPIRAL (this is from Jim Duffy)

 

As I stated in the topic I'm looking for the hottest, most painful, oily that comes to your mind!

 

What do you guys think?

 

I'd like to hear your experiences with these strains (pics are always welcome ;) ...) and your advices and suggestions.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Roberto




#1578584 What are you adding to next years grow?

Posted by Guitarman on 29 August 2018 - 08:32 AM

Next year, I want to try garlic again. In containers. The last two trys it rotted before it was harvest time.

NuMex Sauve Orange. Not new, but will grow MORE. I'm in love with it's great flavor and mild heat.

A proper Aleppo. If anyone can point me toward a source for isolated, authentic seed, I would really appreciate it.

Whatever I do end up growing next year will be in containers in a growing enclosure here at the house. I am done with the floods & weeds of the community gardens.


I've grown Aleppo from Jim Duffy at Refining Fire Chiles and Neil Smith (hippyseedcompany): Both excellent,both the real deal.
