Maldivian Heart x Purple Bhut

Today, 09:26 AM

This year Puckerbutt sold F4 seed (from F3 plants) of an "experimental variety" called CP 120 - Maldivian Heart x Purple Bhut https://store.pucker...-purple-bhut-f2

 

Here is the official picture from Chris Phillips:

I germinated several seeds and am growing a plant at my house, and gave one to a friend. I saw his plant for the first time yesterday and was shocked to see that they are segregating for pod type!

 

This one is mine, with the Jolokia pod type:

And this is his with the Habanero pod type, those pods are HUGE:

Obviously I'm saving seeds from both.

 


2017+2018 AAS winners

18 July 2017 - 05:24 PM

The 2018 AAS winners were announced recently, and although no varieties won in the "pepper" category this year, an ornamental pepper won in "flowers"

 

Takii Seed's "Onyx Red"http://all-americase...epper-onyx-red/

2018-ornamental-pepper-onyx-red-768x768.

 

 

 

 

Because there was no AAS thread for last year (at least not in the search) I'll highlight last years winners as well

 

There were 4 AAS winners in "Pepper" last year:

 

PanAmerican Seed's "Aji Rico F1"http://all-americase...epper-aji-rico/

Clover Seed Co's "Sweetie Pie F1" - http://all-americase...er-sweetie-pie/

PanAmerican Seed's "Mad Hatter F1" - http://all-americase...per-mad-hatter/

So what do you think? Have you had these varieties? Grown them in different Hardiness Zones? Are you more interested in getting seed now that they are AAS winners?


Kumquat & Ghost Sauce

12 July 2017 - 03:26 PM

I've got a handful of kumquats and a plant full of Ghost Peppers and have envisioned these two together in a sauce.

 

I was planning on deseeding the kumquats but leaving the skin on.  They are on the sour side, so I might add a dash of sugar.

 

What other flavors do you think could go well in this? Any other tips?


Roasted my first pod of the year

18 June 2017 - 06:24 PM

I know its only one pod, but its the first one big enough to roast (or in this case, grill) of the year

Gorizza's Excellent Adventure

29 May 2017 - 10:42 AM

I've been putting off doing this but now I want to show some pictures of insect damage but don't have the GLOG set up yet! so here's a crash course into what and where I'm growing this year. I hope to detail each location more thoroughly soon.

 

This year I saved some seed and plants from last year's grow, and also ordered a few varieties from puckerbutt's "Chris Phillips Collection." Briefly,

 

  • Moruga Yellow
  • Apocalypse Red
  • Bhut x Neyde - CP Special Orange from Puckerbutt's Chris Phillips collection
  • Black Bhutlah F2, going to try to grow a few of these, I like experimenting with early generations
  • Vietnamese Tear Jerker
  • Lotabih Jolokia
  • Maldivian Heart x Purple Bhut F3
  • Orange Tepin
  • C7 from Smokin Ed
  • Carolina Reaper
  • X3R Red Knight
  • Numex Heritage 6-4
  • Numex Easter
  • Yatsufusah
  • Yellow Scotch Bonnett
  • Tepin from Park Seed
  • Habanero
  • "Ghost Pepper" a gift from a friend. Probably a Bhut Jolokia but maybe a color varient we'll see.
  • Douglah, have 2 plants over wintered from last year, haven't germinated any new seeds for this year
  • Trinidad Morgua Scorpion, 3 overwintered plants is all I need
  • Aji (taken from the NMSU pepper teaching garden. I could probably learn more about this weird strain)
  • 8 Guatemalan landraces, I'll try to do a post specific to them at some point.

 

I'm growing at 4 locations: Pots in the front yard, a garden bed, pots in a back porch across town, and windowsill pots in my laboratory.

Here are some photos of the various locations taken around May 15th
