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


NuMex Heritage 6-4

Gorizza's Excellent Adventure

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









Most Overrated Spicy Products?

21 May 2017 - 11:20 AM

I personally think the Huy Fong Sriracha is incredibly overrated, its just garlic ketchup! Also the entire Tobasco line tastes too weird for all the market share it has, whats up with that?

And the new black label El Yucateco tastes like garbage.


What are some sauces or products you think are overrated?

Hey everyone, great forum you have here! I've been reading this site for a while as a lurker and decided to finally join the fun.  I've been posting on the reddit forum r/HotPeppers for a while but that group is mostly really small gardeners and people posting pictures of a small spot or chew mark on a leaf and asking why the sky is falling. It was time to move over here.


I'm studying Plant Breeding at University of Georgia, specializing in genetic transformation and genome engineering in row crops, but hot chiles have been a hobby of mine since about 2012.  This season I'm growing ~25 varieties including a few Guatemalan landraces, a couple of F1s, and one F2 population. When I put it like that it sounds so serious, but my largest garden doesn't get quite enough hours of sun so i'm not expecting huge harvests.


Looking forward to talking to you all, and learning more about the community.


Does anyone know what the best meetups or festivals in the southeast are?
