Chinense, mostly taste horrible? 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.
Yeah, not a huge fan of lime in salsa, I used to use it sometimes in the past but haven't in a few years now. Salsa is one of the ways I use to sample all the new pods I grow as I don't have the stomach to eat one plain anymore. I actually sometimes don't even like pure fresh peppers, I like them better for what they do to other foods like salsa and other stuff.
Totally understand now. I'm like you, I don't really like fresh pods that are too hot unless they are mixed with food or smoked and dried.
Guess I'm just a lime freak. I put it in my iced tea instead of lemon.
