Ay, sorry I've missed this. Sounds like we've had a hard time all around.

So KAOS has his first weigh in, at

28.7:3

(Weight:pods)

Shame to hear Local's plant does, but you can sub in a replacement.

No pods yet on my end.

Looking fantastic!

Can't get over how quick those Ebony Fires have grown!

Might just be lighting in the pic, but is that Reaper pod Orange?

Great work, keep it up, all the best, TBG.

Okay, time to hear about some pods!

 

(No video sorry... :mope: )

 

So, first up, Orange Wild Brazil!

 

As D3monic pointed out (I think that was another thread), it is quite hot. And it sure is! I spent most of the time eating it trying to figure out whether or not it was hotter than the Goats Weed X. The two are very, very close, but I'd say that the Goats Weed was a smidgeon hotter than the Wild Brazil. It took me a bit to pick up on its flavour, which was a bit faint. It was good, but I can't really describe it. Will have to try to figure it out with the future pods. All up, a good one, I reckon it would go well in a salsa, but it would add a fair bit of a kick. Which isn't necessarily bad.... 

 

Next, was the Trinidad Scorpion CARDI.

Which is fantastic! First up, you really do get the flavour here. Its got that Citrus flavour that I've noticed in Scorpions I've had previous, but not as strong, and mixed with fruity hints, that I'll once again compare to Habanero. Had a slight bit of that Chinense, floral-ish flavour, but no where near as much the citrus and fruity. Wonderful flavour! And then the heat is also something special. At first, there is zero. None at all. But then about 20 seconds later, it starts building. And then after about 1 minute, you've got some full on heat hitting you, mostly front of mouth I found. Very sharp on the tip of your tongue. Now, it was very hot, I'd say super hot no doubt, but it wasn't unbearable. If you crank it up to awfully hot, then turn it back down a bit, thats where it is. The flavour really makes the heat more bearable too. Definitely would go great in a sauce, as you can see in the picture, its fairly fleshy, so would go well volume-wise. The flavour would be fantastic in a salsa, but i think the heat would be a bit too much. Will try it nonetheless I imagine...

 

Finally, the Cayenne X Bhut.

This one obviously inherited more Cayenne than Bhut. (Although it is only F1....) Heat is waaaay down the scale, but its there. Hard to pick up the flavour on this one, bu its considerably sweet, with some heat. Higher than Jalapeno for sure. Walls were a bit thicker than I was expecting, but still reasonably thin. I'm going to powder it fr sure, but I think that it would go well on a pizza. Not so much salsa. Should be interesting what F2 brings.

 

 

So I've kept on pulling pods, First Malih-Helow today, its on the left here.

Along with Orange Wild Brazil and Cayenne X Bhuts, plus a fiddy cent for reference. I can't wait to try the Malih-Helow, but apparently the flavour is best when its been left for a few days. Stay tuned to hear of the "Salty-Sweet"!

 

 

All The Best, TBG. :dance:

I've noticed really long loading times for the summary so going forward I'll update a new doc with Last Progress Photo Posted.

 

It will be, without bias of course, sorted from biggest to smallest regardless of date.

 

There are many pics that are old so we may have some real gems jumping up the list so get posting.

 

If I've missed someone please shout.

The amount of effort you're putting into this is scary. I'm now stating to think that you have a satellite pointed at my Amarillo.... Or even a drone that you send across the tasman every night with night-vision gear...

 

But good work on the summary, its a really good resource!

 

 

I'm very interested to see how the Winter grow goes for you kiwis... :onfire:
