Posted by Chewi on 05 June 2017 - 05:40 PM

if you grow in containers with good draining mix rain isn't a problem =]


yea i would say it looks like edema.


I know, I do lol.  Fabric pots with Berger bark mix. That should clear up once the rain lets up, Thanks bud!

#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.

#1458866 How to change 50% sunshade into 30%?

Posted by Chewi on 22 May 2017 - 09:31 AM

Keep it. Big difference between 90 degrees and 110 degrees.

#1458861 Got my plants from chileplants.com

Posted by Chewi on 22 May 2017 - 09:18 AM

Not trying to hijack this thread but I just received my plants from Piedmont Farms, they also look just like the plants above. I got 2 new to me plants this year, Ghengis Khan Brain and 7Pot Wreckingball  Got plants from piedmont last year also, very satisfied!


I've ordered from Piedmont and Chileplannts.com. Both do the packing the right way! Awesome even if it is a bit pricey.

Damn it looks like your temps don't get above freezing for 90 days straight in winter!!. Do you have some special window panes and extra insulation to get through those months? Nice house btw enjoy and congrats!!

Chinense, mostly taste horrible? :crazy: You're crazy, dude! They are my favorite

Just kidding. I guess we all have our own tastes...funny, because the few chocolate habs I've tried, I wasn't really a fan of(fresh, at least).


Yeah, it is really interesting to see how different folks like the flavor profiles of chinense pods! I had a really great yellow CARDI scorpion a couple years ago that was the best producer of beautiful pods and I was so excited to munch one and god I was crushed the first bite. Tasted horrible to me! I've seen so many people say how they really prefer yellows to red and brown. Its a flavor mystery.
