I didn't even think about taking off the dome until i started noticing some inch tall seedlings dying off. But now i have both domes off of my first two trays and my newest tray still has the dome on with a heat mat under it too, since none have sprouted yet.
I see you found one of the best reviewers out there, in my opinion...good ol' Nigel! I checked the chileman.org database and their description says that they are one and the same. But if you scroll down a bit, there's the Black Congo with an unavailable description. But those look more like the Scotch Bonnet Brown, which I highly recommend.
Yeah he is my favorite reviewer too, I always look for his videos before others. Isn't the Chocolate Scotch Bonnet the same as the Scotch Bonnet Brown too?? LOL
I'm running into the same issue you are, BD. The names appear to be interchangeable, but here's a quote from PepperLover's "Trinidad Congo Colorful Collection". You may have already read it.
The word Congo is used in Trinidad to describe these habanero type peppers; this collection contains all four colors; Red, Orange, Yellow, and Black Congo. What differentiates this collection is the rich Trinidadian Habanero flavor. The Congos can be classified as very hot but not extremely hot. We have decided to offer this collection due to the reparative demand for more peppers from Trinidad. All peppers from that island have their own distinctive, rich, long lasting aroma. Most people prefer using this collection as fresh pods for cooking. This collection is a must have for serious habanero (Congo) pepperlover.
So I guess if it comes from Trinidad, it's a Congo...anywhere else, it's a Habanero??
@Bhuter Yeah I'm confused too, I would like to buy some seeds but I don't ant to buy 2 or 3 of the same peppers. Here is some of the reviews I've watched too.
Hello, I have been reading that some peppers have different names but they are the same pepper or cross. Could someone please clear up my curiosity and explain some of these specific varieties I was researching before I purchase seeds.
1.) Trinidad Congo, Black Congo, Chocolate Habanero
2.) Pimenta De Neyde x Bhut Jolokia, Pimenta Leopard, Pink Tiger
