#1446955 Beginner Questions HAHAHAHA

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.

What are the main differences in:

Capsicum Annuum, Baccatum, Pubescens, Chinense and Frutescens?? Maybe a couple examples of each??

Here is my honest answer to ^this^ one:

Annuum - good and also tasty. Japs and Tepins

Baccatum - super good and really tasty, damn really long season though. Queen Laurie, Brazilian Starfish, Aji Amarillo. (All these taste great - Starfish is low heat though)

Pubescens - fantastically good and juicy and tasty and sneaky hot. All kinds of shapes and colors of Rocoto and Manzano.

Chinense - mostly taste horrible with a few notable exceptions like these - Bahamian Goat, CGN 21500, a couple choco habs. Some of the hotter ones are killer for powder though.

Frutescens - I dunno any except Tabasco.

also the CGN-21500's flavor is like... "soapy" pineapple with a good deal of heat. about 75% of a habanero


You so crazy Pex! CGN-21500 doesn't have any soapyness. I call it :high: clean tropical cucumber :high:

forgot you left Sunbury!!!!!!!

#1441525 Storing Dried Peppers

Posted by Chewi on 30 March 2017 - 09:48 AM

. I saw someone else post they simply place the powder back in the dehydrator to solve the problem.


I remember reading that and wondering how in the hell that mess got cleaned up!!

I found orange Manzano at a local nursery, doesn't have fruit on it yet but can't wait to try my first from the Pubescense family!


Orange are tasty! You'll fall in love with Pubes now!

#1438119 Lime pepper

Posted by Chewi on 23 March 2017 - 09:09 AM

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.

Here's to a great 2017 man!!
