Chilenos - what are they, really?

Your peppers aren't hot

Mine are hotter.  Maybe it's because I grow them where the weather is hotter.  I don't know.  But I have taste-tested yours from across America, and mine are hotter than yours.

Superhot pepper ratio for JAM

21 September 2015 - 09:01 PM

I'd like some input for the ratio of ghost peppers to, say, a quart of jam.  How many peppers per quart do you use?  I have a ton of peppers and will experiment with my fruit jams but I have never done this before and have no clue.  I'm looking for something edible for stuff like cream cheese and bagels, but with a serious kick that would please the serious chili pepper fan.



There are no stupid questions, so don't go making fun of me!

I've enjoyed browsing this forum for several weeks and finally signed up.  I grew about 30 C.annums for pickling (lactofermentation) several years ago and they did ok.  The ones grown close together did best, seeming to prefer the shade they provided one another.


I now have my own place and am growing about 75 peppers, including about 20 C. chinense*.  Kind of worried about growing them in my climate, but willl experiment placing them where they'll get some shade in the afternoon, and I have several self-watering containers that I can move around.  May also plant companion plants to help shade them (okra!).


Anyway, glad to be aboard.
