#1480693 School me on Safi Red Scotch Bonnets

Posted by Chewi on 03 August 2017 - 10:10 AM

I was planning on it but had issues (my own fault) germinating some varieties and that was 1 of them.


Allright, next year lets get these going bud!! Always need a good red bonnet of some kind!

#1480415 School me on Safi Red Scotch Bonnets

Posted by Chewi on 02 August 2017 - 09:51 AM

I grew SAFI red bonnets a couple of years ago and absolutely loved them. Ordered more seeds this year for next season as I mistakenly thought I still had some saved.
From my experience with them, I can say they do have great yields and the flavour is outstanding. Heat is higher than MoA bonnets, and based on memory alone I'd put it close by the P. Dreadie bonnets I'm growing this year. Now that I have seeds again it'll be a definite grow every year.


Did you end up growing the Safi this year? I don't think I've tried one but sounds like a good one!

Very cool. Be interested to find where that guy got his seeds. Been kind of looking for the red one for a while now.

#1472631 What pods can you buy at your local markets?

Posted by Chewi on 03 July 2017 - 12:33 PM

I tried doing some fresh Manzano shopping online a few months ago, and found a website called Melissa's (or something close to that?). I think they were located in California. They quoted me at ONE HUNDRED F--KING DOLLARS for a 5lb box of fresh Manzanos, shipped to Connecticut



lol I get Manzono pods at the grocery store like $5 a pound. Problem is, they are too large for a SFRB so it makes it odd to ship.

#1463899 Tasted Lumbre?

Posted by Chewi on 05 June 2017 - 10:02 AM

Hi Everyone. I've seen quite a few posts indicating that people are growing the Lumbre chile this year. My understanding is that it's supposed to be quite a bit hotter than the Sandia. Have many people here eaten Lumbre? I didn't get a chance to grow it this year, but Sandia has been my favorite green chile flavor for many years, and I'm eager to try Lumbre. Any opinions are appreciated!


-Dash (in NM)


Lumbre are not just hot but they taste great! I like all the NM types but Lumbre is the hottest one I've come across.
