#1582992 Labeled Scotch Bonnet

Posted by Trident chilli on Today, 10:17 AM

Not necessarily .... some bonnets are elongated, wrinkly, bumpy, flat and pear shaped but those pods in your photograph have a good bonnet shape ... it will be the heat and taste that will be the deciding factor

100% correct. "Foodarama" and "Beth Boyd" Scotch Bonnets are one and the same. Used to be, anyway lol

Unrelated, but...... as far as I know, Allen Boatman has never called "his" Bonnet "True Form." I've talked to him on the phone about it a few times. He called "his" Bonnet the "T.J.S.B." for "True Jamaican Scotch Bonnet." Seeds/pods were originally given to him by a Jamaican businessman in Florida (I want to say Ft. Lauderdale, if I'm not mistaken), years and years ago.

I've also seen people posting that "TFM" stands for "True Form," which is also false. "TFM," which we should ALL know by now ;) , stands for Trenton Farmer's Market, and the pods were originally "discovered," and seeds distributed, by a guy named Mark, in New Jersey, USA.

I know I've posted about this before, so sorry if I'm repeating myself :cheers:
(Bike808 knows what I'm talking about :) )

Mike you are spot on and I maybe am responsible for quoting true form ... in relation to TFM. I questioned Peter - Semillas many years ago when on his site he was selling SB seed labelled as TFM I asked him was this Trenton Farmers Market and he replied no - he said true form seed that he had been given from a friend in the US and I assumed maybe from Allen Boatman as the photograph on Peters site looked like his

We have spoken about this before and I am sure it will continue to be a debate .... putting Allens, Beth Boyds and Foodarama together could we tell the difference...similar yes but for me Allens stands out and I am happy to say the original true form prior to Steve McQueen, contacting the Jamaican Ministry of Agriculture, negotiating and finally obtaining seed of what we all know now as MoA Yellow

Worried that Allens Bonnet could be lost as I seemed to be the only one growing the variety I sent seed to Justin White who last season grew it out and placed the variety on his web site. Refreshing to read on the glogs that others have bought this variety and are growing it this season

The earliest I could find any information on Trenton Farmers Market was from a post on the pepper forum C2C November 2008 by Potawie who mentions Mark from Lawenceville New Jersey ... really pleased that others enjoy this variety

Adam I dont want to be hi-jacking Ghaleons thread either but your Cappuccino are spot on .... more history this variety was created by Wayright ...grown by Lexx/ Jackson 15 but recently the pods have been elongated. I was given original 2012 seed by Sandra but they didnt germinate..... glad you have managed to get that bonnet shape back. Im impressed 👍👍

Adam maybe PexPeppers managed to get hold of Dulac seed ...we will never know but all I can say is that between you and Pex you have a great pepper. I have never had as much luck growing this variety as I have done this season thanks to your seed ... normally for me in the UK the last variety to mature and it always struggles to gain any size

As you can see all the pods I posted are uniform and those remaining are exactly the same .... in the spirit of Matthew Arthur its all about the bees I have hopefully some seed for you as a bee 🐝 has picked up some pollen and deposited it within a Cappuccino flower. I shall post a photo soon hopefully you could find a spot within your garden to grow on for me

I gotta ask...what are your favorites?
and any that you didn't particularly like?

Favourites that’s a difficult question however I have chosen three varieties from this seasons grow

Beth Boyds .... great tasting bonnet, light and fresh, not overwhelming in heat

Free Port Orange ... I apologise as this shot does not do the pods justice... it’s a beautiful colour and those that have grown it before know what I mean. I first saw this variety a few years ago on Stefan Tastypeppers NL site

SB7J .... Created by Patrick his original pheno was named “Grass Hut” after the American 60s sitcom “Gilligans Island” ... comic adventures of seven castaways attempting to survive on the island. A later pheno I have noted was grown by Dulac which he describes as a “Atomic variant” an atomic shaped mushroom cloud. Adams SB7J is a superb example of this


I would have included “Schneider Farm”but I didn’t grow it this season opting for “Papa Joes” instead. Speaking with Justin White (WHP) and Sandra Tipton (Foggia) both have had bumper crops from this prolific variety so there should be plenty of seed for sale on his site. If you like bonnets besides the above I urge you try it. Hailing from a hydroponic shop in Michigan it was given to Andy Croel (Pulpiteer) who passed seed to me and I in turn passed to Justin and Sandra

Jamaican Black River was also from Andy collected at source by a group of his parishioners

Sorry if I bored you with the history and finally which one was disappointing none of the bonnets but some of their hybrids are too hot for me

#1580298 OBEAH F1 - Reaper x MoA Scotch Bonnet

Posted by Trident chilli on 06 September 2018 - 01:56 PM

John, how are yours looking?

Small at the moment and the last variety to ripen however the early forecast is that we in the UK may get a good October as long as the night temperatures dont get too low. What has impressed me is I have plenty of pods following the same pheno a nice rounded bottom but one or two still have the Reaper tail

Once I get some colour I will post some pictures.... thanks again for the seed but sorry your plants didnt thrive this season ....more than happy to post seed back
