In Topic: May sound silly but not all peppers taste like Bell Peppers right?

20 March 2017 - 04:00 AM

I'll happily eat bell peppers in food but red and yellow ones aren't exactly nice on their own and green bells are disgusting. I have never had a chilli that tasted anything like green bells and, while some do share some of the fruitier elements of ripe red or orange bells (orange bell best bell), no chilli that I've found tastes exactly like a bell pepper. Or even that much like one.


The Scorpions you mention taste quite acidically citrus to me, with orange-like notes. I don't describe them or the slightly similar Habs purely as "fruity" because, with the number of different fruit out there, it's a rather nebulous term.

Being a cook only sucks when it goes unappreciated. Good luck getting to your plants soon though.

I think a lot of it has to do with peak SHU vrs average SHU. Although I thought they would have done better than that.


I could have sworn its average was rated at 1.2M though. That looks closer to its 800K min.


EDIT: Wait, nevermind, there was a second result further up in the 1.2M region, we're all good. Data is concordant.

Such low results for the Moruga Scorpion. What's going on there?


Judging by the numbers, it looks to be almost reaper level.
The guy I got this from deals with puckerbutt a lot. I wonder if it's one of his secret crosses?

After everything surrounding the Reaper's heritage and the Death Strain/Gator, I'm not trusting anything from Puckerbutt until it's in my mouth. And no, your damn Gator-extract puree doesn't prove a thing, Ed. Anyone can squeeze a chilli, concentrate the juice and claim to have a new record.

Fair enough, I do any necessary edits offline so that part of a hosting site means nothing to me.
