#1630022 What do y'all do with your volunteer plants?

Posted by MBGardener on 03 May 2019 - 06:06 PM

I have a couple flower pots that reseed themselves every year, Petunias in one Snapdragons in the other that usually come out pretty good. Tomatillo likes to volunteer in the garden and I like to let those go when they aren't in the way. Last year I got a few Fatalii volunteers that managed to produce a few pods before they froze out at the end of the season.

I think reactions to capsaicin vary from person to person as well.

I have noticed that too about the Fatalii peppers. They can really hit the stomach hard with burn and capsaicin cramps more than others will. Although I have noticed over time I have developed some tolerance for them.

I have grown and eaten a lot of fatalii peppers during the past few years and still find them to have a rather aggressive burn to them, so I would agree with you TRM. I still love the fatalii though for the great flavor and aroma.

I grew some Chocolate Scorpions last year that were gnarly, super hot and I really enjoyed eating them both fresh and dried.

Pasillas are close to that heat level and have some good flavor to them.

#1578056 Favorite fresh-eating pepper?

Posted by MBGardener on 27 August 2018 - 12:02 PM

I like eating a fresh Fatalii with some of my meals. I love the flavor and enjoy the heat on them.

The peppers are no mere hobby........ they are a way of life!

#1564933 How long do pepper seeds store?

Posted by MBGardener on 03 July 2018 - 02:16 PM

This season I started seeds I had harvested from two different varieties of peppers I grew out in 2013 and saw a high percentage of germination. They seemed slightly slower to germinate but the plants still seem to be  growing out healthy. I regularly see good viability in pepper seeds for 4 to 5 years. Granted seed viability durations vary from species to species.

There should be a superhot called screaming meanies or the mad pooper.

#1549733 Most Anticipated Variety

Posted by MBGardener on 29 April 2018 - 05:35 PM

I am probably most excited to see how my Chocolate Trinidad Scorpions turn out, haven't grown them before. Though it is hard to pick just one pepper out of the lot of them.
