In Topic: Can someone help me save my chilli plant?

I agree with the opinions/diagnoses already stated. Overcrowded and possibly  over-fertilized. Once a week is too much. The cumulative effect is burning the plants.

In Topic: May sound silly but not all peppers taste like Bell Peppers right?

I got Carolina Reapers,Jalapenos,Habaneros and Cayenne peppers. I heard Habs got a fruity taste to them, what does that mean? was also thinking of getting some Trinidad Scorpions but i don;t want bell tasting peppers.

 

The cayenne is probably the one "plain" tasting pepper you have on your list, but still not bell pepper flavor. And of course I'm assuming you're familiar with the jalapeno flavor.... but the c. chinense..... habs and reapers.... when people say "fruity", some have described that as soapy or perfumey.  I've never had a reaper, but I've had plenty of habs...... and I can say your world is about to change. You should add some scotch bonnets to your list, if flavor is what you're after.

 

All I know is that your world is about to change!

What did your buddy in African call them? Have you tried them? How's the flavor/heat level? There are so many different varieties that appear similar, it's difficult to tell, but they resemble a yellow bhut.

I grew them a couple of years ago. Very easy to grow. Never used them much. Flavor is your generic pepper flavor similar to tabasco. They have LOTS of seeds. I gave a bunch away to little old ladies who just had to have one to show their friends. lol
