#1518215 Making a new Chilli! Aji Bodysnatcher

Posted by dennish on 15 January 2018 - 09:26 AM

dennish... I have space for 6 F5 seeds if you're interested in a USA grower to give it a try. 

 

I can add them to the F6 cross I will be growing from seeds obtained from member PaulG

 

My season germinating will begin 2/1/2018  ;)

 

Great looking work and patience you have so far.

 

Hey Masher, thanks for your interest but I'll be continuing to plough a lone furrow until I'm happy they are ready for release, hopefully later this year all going to plan.

HI All, first off apologies for my neglecting final wrap-up for the comp, lots going on which has meant I've been crazy busy which I won't bore you with.

 

Below are the final standings.  If you are in the top 3 overall or the top 3 for your respective forum, please can you PM me your address details and I will get things moving with the prizes.

 

Many thanks and apologies once again for my tardiness. 

 

Big congratulations to Rick and all those contributing.

 

EDIT: Having revisited my earlier postings on prizes, see slightly updated view below.

FURTHER EDIT: Corrected THP runners-up slots.

 

Thanks

 

Dennis

The selected F3 generation plants grew really strongly in the back end of last season, achieving close to uniform pod shapes. I saw a higher percentage of the plants I grew with desirable pod shape (50%). The heat and taste profile was maintained from previous generations too.

I selected the best pods and sowed F4 seed late July 2017.  As per previous generations, I grew out 6 plants which have now been whittled down to 3 based on plant form and initial pod shapes.  All are sporting pods now which I am waiting to fully develop and ripen to allow for harvesting of F5 seed for immediate sowing. 
 
My ambition, all going to plan, is to have a large amount of good F5 pods to select for F6 seed which will allow me to release the variety in a close the stabilised state.  Overall, it's been really hard work year round growing but I'm really excited about the potential here and hopefully when others get chance to grow them, they will agree I've created something unique and worthwhile!

I really like the choop , always very productive and attractive plant .

Mine is nice and hot with a distinctive chinense aroma . How do you use yours?

 

 

That is exactly as I'd describe mine Karoo!  Besides eating them whole and wishing I paid the tiny pods more respect afterwards, I've pickled mine in a slightly sweet spiced white whine vinegar this year... can't wait to try them!

Rocoto Rio Huallaga grown initially in greenhouse then moved outside end of June, has been podding well all summer and seems in its element in the cooler autumn temps... well over 2m and threatening the view from our living room and the pods have a unique, blistering heat.

Posted by dennish on 17 September 2017 - 03:03 AM

Going to be cold tonight Dennis ... keep warm and let's hope we get more ripening time ... Chup looks a great variety how does it taste

 

Chupetinho is surprisingly hot, those little pods sure pack a punch.  Strong / typical chinense flavour... hoping the pickling process mellows them a little, I've gone for a slightly sweet spiced vinegar.

Posted by dennish on 16 September 2017 - 01:12 PM

Looking good, Dennis! Hopefully, you won't get stuck with too many green pods when it's all said and done

Cheers!


Cheers Mike, I've hopefully got at least another month until the final curtain so fingers crossed lots of ripening time!

Just picked and harvested my Chupetinho, over 200 pods from one plant in one pull ain't bad!

White Bhut W Strain, developed by Jay Weaver... seeds supplied via Justin at white hot peppers... gnarly white bhut pheno that ripens through white and ends up deep ivory / pale lemon colour. They are really hot and tasty, love white pods! Think I'll be rustling up a special batch of powder with these bad boys!

Harvested Giant TS CARDI pods tonight, some absolutely massive ones... not the a-typical CARDI pheno as from my veteran but great looking pods nonetheless.
