Quick update with some more ripening pics. Wish I had my Samsung S7 still for pics, that died so I swapped to an LG G6 for a few weeks and now I'm on the new Moto Z2 Force. Not a bad phone, pics are decent. I'll swap to a Samsung S8 soon though.


My one and only Bhut pod so far, and it's on my backup plant. My main Bhut plant was one of the ones topped by deer earlier in the season, so it's still growing back, bushy, but no pods from that one yet...

BTR...

CPR's ended up going a very bright red. I'm digging it...

Mutant Hab, forgot to update on this one recently. It's still growing, but it won't set pods, the stamen and flowers are all jacked up. It must have close to 800 buds on it if I had to guess, and it's not much bigger than a basket ball...

My back up Purple Naga Viper putting out some pods now. Main one was topped by deer, it's super bushy now, but no pods yet..

T.S. Moruga Scorp that's been forked since birth, so slow to grow...

And these little guys have been all around lately, I posted in the growing sub too. So far they look like ladybug larvae...

Oh man, I love that color! Looks like a winner to me!

Me too, its a very cool orangish red. Keeping seeds from it and I'll likely try to overwinter the plant also.

Well, they don't have the pheno or the right color unless they go brown after this. But they came from Butch, and I did not mislabel or mix up anything. Maybe I just got "lucky" with a weird gene that decided to show.

They dont look like anything else I'm growing either.

Mine were just starting to ripen this past weekend. I've been in Illinois all week for work though. Should have some nice pics when I get home Friday!

Wow, I just tried my first Aji Pineapple.... It was amazing! First very sweet, then tasted just like an apple to me for about 5 or 6 seconds before the heat came on. Was about jalapeno level heat for me. Still a slight burn after about 10 mins. Definitely growing it again next season!

I've been doing the same. The only issue I run into is if I glue them too early, they drop, you have to wait until basically what looks like the day before they are going to open, then glue them

Well, they stopped dropping leaves, but did also drop most of the flowers they had and my Aji Pineapple dropped 4 pods also. That plant took it the harshest. My back up plants I sprayed with the same mixture are all fine, no leaf drop, but they are shaded most of the day, so I think it was mainly due to spraying my main plants in full sun and not rinsing them off after. But, the aphids are gone for now, lol. At this point in my season, it is what it is. I'll be lucky to get a few ripe pods off each, which is my main goal anyways... Ease the hit to the wallet for seeds next season.

Thanks Wiri! I'm growing it kind of as an ornamental. But people do eat them. They're supposed to have a pretty good bite. Peter Stanley just posted a review on them a couple weeks ago.

So I sprayed them with the dawn dish soap (green apple was all I had) and water mix yesterday to help with the aphids. Today I noticed most of my plants dropped a crap load of their leaves. Did I use too much soap or was it the green apple maybe?

Ive sprayed in the past with this and never had an issue. The leaves dropped were all healthy leaves.

Couple updated pics of the Blue Christmas plants on the deck (2 plants). The pink straw chunks mark the sealed flowers.

Just did some aphid hunting after work. Looks like just one potted orange fatali and one Moruga in the ground had some. But I'm sure there are others. I have some time off work this week so ill go through each plant thoroughly and spray them with the soap and water mix.

My plants are just starting to take off, I dont want that momentum to get ruined by damn aphids.



Few garden pics...

Thanks for the information. Looks like a winner. Description is spot on of your plant.

I order something from them every couple years. They seem to have a good selection and lots of new varieties. I'll check them out and see what Neil's up to.

I used the wood glue method on a few flowers from each plant for pure pollination. Having good luck so far. P.M. me and I'll send you some seeds this fall!


Edit: The pods were more dark purple, almost black. They're turning green now as you can see in the pic so I'm assuming they go from purple to green to red.
