We had a habanero that was 8 when he succumbed to a late frost. Best tasting peppers I've ever had, hence we saved him for so long lol

Good morning everyone

My name is Adam. I've been a fan of spice for as long as I can remember. My father always had jalapeños and various peppers in the garden growing up and then we finally got our first habanero. Totally changed our lives! The heat was intense but the flavor. Wow the flavor! Our favorite plant from that first batch lived to be 8 years old! He had a flavor that I've never had in another habanero since. We'd dig him up and bring him in every year. Finally one year he got hit by some end of the season frost and he was gone. He was named habeeb lol.

Fast forward to this spring and I've decided to do some gardening of my own. It's small but it's a start. Have two habaneros currently. I'm waiting to get some habeeb seeds from my father. I'm also waiting for some Carolina reaper seeds from pepper Joe :) figured I'd jump in head over heels. I know it's a little late to start the seeds here in stl but I figured better late than never.

Sorry for the long intro, I'm just extremely excited to revive an old hobby. I'm looking forward to learning a whole lot here
