In Topic: Baccatum with longest stem

Yesterday, 10:56 AM

I thought the bishops crowns I grew last year had pretty long stems compared to other non-baccatum peppers I grew, but can't really compare it to other baccatum since I haven't grown any others.

In Topic: Which Habanero Is The "Best"?

Yesterday, 12:14 AM

I am getting Jamaican Hot Chocolate and there is room for one Habanero.

I had the privilege to have some Habanero powder in the past and I really loved it, but I didn't asked which variety it was from and the guy I bought it from does not work for that store anymore so I cannot ask him. It doesn't matter though.

I did Googled it but I found nothing about different varieties and tastes. Forum's own search function, didn't turned up anything relevant; strange... Anyway. :)
I will not claim that there is such a thing as a "best" Habanero. We are different persons and we have different tastes. So if you could share our experiences about the Habaneros you have tasted and what Habanero you think is the "best" and why, it would be great!
If we can gather information about all of them I can make a PDF and/or JPEG for the forum. ;)

Neat idea! I would figure out if you do or do not want to include scotch bonnets... They are closely related, similar heat level, and often overlap growing regions.

Based on what I've seen here on THP (as I don't have enough experience to claim a favorite) Jamaican hot chocolate, chocolate hab, all the congos (habaneros from Trinidad), Bahamian goat, and MOA scotch bonnet are all very popular.

I can personally vouch that the Bahamian goat is excellent, and I'm pissed my overwinter and seeds didn't make it this season, so I have no BG this year.

Good luck, excited to watch the results.

In Topic: Making Vinegar

I haven't made vinegar but I've looked into it. Covering it is important, but I think the most important thing is to use something that you would actually drink. Garbage in, garbage out.

Doesn't have to be expensive, but if you wouldn't drink it, it's not worth making vinegar out of it.

In Topic: What to do with all these Carolina Reapers?

Great looking plants and excellent phenos on those pods, very cool! PhotoBucket screwed up a bunch of pics, but I would try to do something like this: http://thehotpepper....= pepper puree


Good luck!

In Topic: Looking for peppers that taste like a camp fire

This is what I had in mind for the stovetop. 4.4/5 stars on 900 reviews. Supposed to be great for indoor.
