I suppose I'm pretty late but still...

A guy walks into a bar with an alligator. It's about 10 feet long. The bartender flips out and says, "Hey buddy, you gotta get that son of a b*tch outta here. It's going to bite one of my customers and I'm going to get sued."
The guy says, "No no no, it's a tame alligator. I'll prove it to you."
He picks up the alligator and puts it on the bar. Then he unzips his pants, pulls out his package and sticks it in the alligator's mouth. The alligator just keeps his mouth open. After about 5 minutes, he pulls it out of the alligator's mouth and zips up his pants and says, "See, I told you it was a tame alligator. Anybody else want to try it?"
The drunk down at the end of the bar says, "Yah, I'd like to try it but I don't think I can hold my mouth open that long!"



#1634492 Windchicken's 2019 NOT a glog...🤠

DeSoto Parish garden looks great Gary! Great job!

Those Numex varieties are a treat! I've still some dried Lumbre and Sandia Select that you generously sent me a couple years ago and they're still flavorful!

I'm happy that you have finally reached the right annum/chinense ratio LOL (i'm biased)

Posted by Datil on 15 May 2019 - 02:35 AM



Good to see you to, Fab! Best to you and fam as well. You growing any peppers this year?



Thank you Stefan!

I've sowed not much by your standards LOL but i'm the bhut realm once more with a couple of funky genetics from the past.

I'll put up a small glog if i'm not too lazy :)

It's still pretty cold for May down here!

Your plants look nice!


Take care

I'm glad to hear you and yours are well, my friend! I can't believe your boy is in school already!!! My head is spinning now!!!


Yikes! 40ºF is way too cold for May! Hopefully that was your last cold snap...


I'm looking forward to those photos! Are you still growing the Karpathos Market pepper? I've always wanted to grow that one again....


Time flies my friend!

I'm not growing the Karpathos pepper anymore but we should refresh seeds before it's too late, i've still plenty of them and it tasted so good!

More bad weather in this past weekend so i'm still delaying transplants...

I promise to send you more interesting seeds at the end of this season!


Take care

Fabrizio, how are you doing???!!! It's so good to hear from you!!! How is the family? Are you growing this year?


All the same to you and yours! I think about y'all from time to time, and wonder how y'all are doing...


We are good here...My garden helpers are all growing up now, driving their own cars, and living busy lives as young adults, but they still find time to help their old Pawpaw in the garden...🤠



Nice to hear you're doing well Gary!

I think of you as well, sometimes i dream about a trip down there LOL would be fun.

We're fine as well, my son is in school now and we're pretty busy as usual.

I'm keeping my grow on a manageable size and i've sowed a few tasty varieties, especially bhuts (see my profile).

The weather is crazy this spring with a lot of wind and rain showers, at the start of this week the lows were about 40F which is very odd for May here!

All my plants are still in cups in a portable greenhouse (some late starts still indoor) but i plan to put something in the dirt / pots this weekend.

I'm so lazy to take pics but maybe i'll send you a couple shots :)


Be well!



#1629929 What's a good "Thai chili" variety?

Posted by Datil on 03 May 2019 - 09:37 AM

Thai Orange SSE, Prik-Kee-Noo, Thai Red Hot, Prik Jaew, Thai Dragon... i love them all :)

Many of them are sold with different names but look/taste very similar.

I'm growing Thai Burapa for the first time this year, should be great as well.

Some indonesian and vietnamese peppers are very similar and equally good if you like piercing, "dry" heat (Cabe Rawit, Cabe Sumatra, Cabe Keriting, Vietnamese Tear Jerker, ...)


Happy growing

Nice to see you back Gary :P

Plants look stellar as always my friend!

All the best to you and your family for another great season!




#1626206 Recomendations for thin fleshed Chillis

Posted by Datil on 15 April 2019 - 11:16 AM

Since it's already April, try to find some plant in your local nurseries, should not be hard at all.

In general many cayenne, thai (orange, red, dragon, ...) and indian peppers (like Pusa Jwala) will do and are usually available everywhere.

Also Goat's Weed if you can find it and like something a little out of the ordinary.

The local indian/asian community should be a great source for seeds for the next year.


Happy growing





#1626132 Any way I can sprout these old seeds?

Posted by Datil on 15 April 2019 - 03:14 AM

I am still sprouting seeds from a 1995 pod...just saying...


It really depends by the quality/maturity of the seeds at the time of collection and storage method.

Unrefrigerated seeds can be a PITA to sprout but still i've had luck with some really old seeds forgotten in a closet.

On the other hand, some seeds won't germinate not matter how hard you try.

When all seems lost i usually dispose them in a corner of my garden and forget them, i've been lucky enough to find some random sprouts after some weeks and rain showers...


Best of luck



#1625177 My First Superhot Experience

Posted by Datil on 10 April 2019 - 06:45 AM

Doesn't look like a Naga Morich to me.




Here's a couple Naga M. shots from back in the day (awful image quality LOL), mine are not pointy like Chris pods but they're always bumpy (i've grown loads of naga/bhuts):






There's a lot of hybridization happening with open pollinated seeds saving and exchanging, nothing wrong on your part OP.

I bet yours are really hot anyway.

I disagree on the flavor, to me naga/bhuts are the best tasting chinenses.

Using calcium Paul? Always my go to for weird leaf growth.


This. It seems the beginning of a calcium deficiency, hit them with some CalMag and see if the new leaves grow healthy (if this is the case the old crinkled leaves won't recover as calcium is not mobile).

Rest of the grow looks awesome!
