#1493731 C. Flexuosum frost resistance

Posted by Gorizza on 24 September 2017 - 06:43 PM

I'm not certain, but it seems that Flexuosum isn't compatible with Chinense (or annuums/frutescens/baccatum for that matter) for breeding.


It would certainly be an undertaking even if some hybrids managed to be viable because it's a difficult trait to select for. Many factors can influence frost tolerance.


Might be easier to just try a bunch of crazy annuum or chinense crosses and see which ones die last every year and keep growing out seeds from the best survivors.



You mean recurrent selection? too hard, just grab the craziest looking peppers and show everybody how weird they look /s

#1493723 Time to ripen?

#1493722 What am I growing?!

Posted by Gorizza on 24 September 2017 - 06:31 PM

I'm going to keep money on Habs with a nutrient issue

Anyway, welcome

#1492400 Puckerbutt's C7??

Posted by Gorizza on 18 September 2017 - 10:59 PM

Pic doesn't really do the color justice without a color card. oh well. This is the C7 (left) next to TMS (right) dried in the same batch



#1492174 Puckerbutt's C7??

Posted by Gorizza on 17 September 2017 - 11:29 PM

Hey sorry to open an older thread

I grew C7 this year, neat little bhut with very intense heat. I'm no good at describing flavors but I prefer it over red bhuts. I'm posting because of what I saw when I dried them:

After drying in my dehydrator they come out brilliantly bright red. Scorpions and other red peppers take a darker hue when they dry but not c7. Pretty interesting to me.

If anyone is interested I could snap some pics

#1486515 Yellow moruga?

Posted by Gorizza on 24 August 2017 - 10:46 PM

Those are just dandy sir, very nice size and pheno shape!





Wish I could take credit for those! That pic was lifted from HellHotPeppers, mine keep getting "sunburned."


Yellow Moruga is kind of a weird variety. It looks JUST like scorpions, but slightly bigger and takes a HUGE cut on heat.

#1486267 Yellow moruga?

Posted by Gorizza on 24 August 2017 - 09:18 AM

my Yellow Morugas have the scorpion pod type, like this picture from hell hot peppers Yellow-Moruga.jpg



those look like some kind of yellow habanero


#1484236 New Green Chile Variety

Posted by Gorizza on 17 August 2017 - 09:22 AM

from chileseedusa: 

Ms. Junie is my latest addition developed here on the farm. Ms. Junie is a hot variety: 6 to 10 inch pods, 9000 to 10,000 SHU, thick meat, but still sundries very well. One of the heaviest yielding chile peppers ever developed.


Maybe the "heavy yielding" and thick wall go together. This sounds like a good pepper to grow if you're selling by the pound.

#1482827 Carolina Reaper x Ghost

Posted by Gorizza on 11 August 2017 - 09:29 AM

The F1s are all nearly identical. 


If the parents were sufficiently inbred, F1s will be genetically identical, and any variation could only be due to E.


The only caveat I can think of to this is that I've seen that reciprocal crosses can sometimes yield different F1s depending on which plant was the mother. I suppose this has to do with chloroplastic effects.

#1482252 Bean concentrate

Posted by Gorizza on 08 August 2017 - 11:00 PM

sub the bacon for lard and sub refried beans with some frijoles negros refritos and we're in business!



^^^I'm really serious about this stuff!
