A whole lot of a little bit of this and that. Can't hurt to ask.
Calusa Indian Mound
P. Dreadie Scotch Bonnet
Pimenta de Neyde
Yaki Blue Fawn
Any Pimentón de la Vera varieties
Any interesting crosses
Any cool baccatums
Havent had much experience with them yet but the chocolate scotch Bonnet is the one Im most favoring right now
I've got one of those growing, started super late, hopefully I've overwinter that one.
I've tried some of the crosses, like Sb7J and Scotch Brain, and the WHP SB, none really grew true, so I'll have to revisit those. I've loved the Bahamian Goat, I know it's not a bonnet, but sometimes included as a pseudo-bonnet.
Next year I'm finally trying out the famous Papa Dreadie(thanks Showmedasauce)! And also MOA Red
Waiting for this thing to finish ripening for days, something seemed up. I went to examine it, and it just fell off. Too bad. Luckily I have some more coming in. Really cool looking shapes on this Goronong.
Favourites thats a difficult question however I have chosen three varieties from this seasons grow
Beth Boyds .... great tasting bonnet, light and fresh, not overwhelming in heat
Free Port Orange ... I apologise as this shot does not do the pods justice... its a beautiful colour and those that have grown it before know what I mean. I first saw this variety a few years ago on Stefan Tastypeppers NL site
SB7J .... Created by Patrick his original pheno was named Grass Hut after the American 60s sitcom Gilligans Island ... comic adventures of seven castaways attempting to survive on the island. A later pheno I have noted was grown by Dulac which he describes as a Atomic variant an atomic shaped mushroom cloud. Adams SB7J is a superb example of this
I would have included Schneider Farmbut I didnt grow it this season opting for Papa Joes instead. Speaking with Justin White (WHP) and Sandra Tipton (Foggia) both have had bumper crops from this prolific variety so there should be plenty of seed for sale on his site. If you like bonnets besides the above I urge you try it. Hailing from a hydroponic shop in Michigan it was given to Andy Croel (Pulpiteer) who passed seed to me and I in turn passed to Justin and Sandra
Jamaican Black River was also from Andy collected at source by a group of his parishioners
Sorry if I bored you with the history and finally which one was disappointing none of the bonnets but some of their hybrids are too hot for me

Awesome answer! Exactly what I was wanting to hear from the bonnet aficionado
Please add or subtract from this list .... not all true bonnets and I have included some bonnet crosses. This list is not exhaustive but I have grown all of these over the past five years. I can expand on each variety if needed
I gotta ask...what are your favorites? and any that you didn't particularly like?
Not much of a harvest yet, as I got a real late start this year. But, picked this chocolate guy yesterday. Was supposed to be a Black Fatalii, obviously not true. I ate half of this thing and it had a nice delayed heat, and gave me a good endorphin buzz. Surprised me. Haven't had a lot of chocolate pods yet, but this one is nice.
