As a fresh pepper it's pretty pleasant. Mild bitterness, but not in a bad way, with lots of subtlety and nuance. Only problem is, of course, the Ghost-like heat making it hard to handle.

it´s been my experience that peach pods can be hot as eff.  i grew a JPGS last year, and loved it... growing a few JPGS plants this year....


I was a little underwhelmed by my JPGSs. Same sort of heat to a red Bhut but the flavour wasn't one that carried as well through meals.

As my plants get bigger, I'm starting to realise just how high my hopes for AJ's white bubblegums are. They look super spooky on his pics but apparently aren't as amazing consistently so we'll have to see.
It's agonizing.

CGN 21500 is well known as CGN 21500, so no other name needed.



I don't remember numbers nearly as well as names. Every time I see it I'm like "Ooh, it's that GCN one!" and then "Wait, is it that GCN one?", followed by some frantic googling.

If people ever start talking about a second GCN pepper it's going to be pretty rough for me. I would definitely prefer a real name.

Apparently goats have a musty aroma that reminds people of certain peppers. I don't get it myself but I'll take any name over a pseudo-random assortment of letters and numbers.

Abóbora Roxa sounds good to me but can you give a definitive pronunciation for it?
