P Dreadie    This is the first to ripen and a pretty good pepper:








Rocoto Marlene    This is the first C. pubescence to ripen.  What a delicious pepper!   There is another pod on the plant that is ripe now as well and will be enjoyed soon.   The plant has more pods but they, so far, are only about the size of large olives.  I certainly hope they ripen as well.  The first two grew from blossoms formed while the plant was still it's Solo/basement stage.

Narrow minded as I am, I have no interest in growing choc. superhots.  I just do not enjoy the taste and, yes, for me they are very bitter.  I tend to find that the hotter the variety the more likely it will be bitter as well.  Lesser heat hot peppers are bitter, if at all, just in the placenta.  Perhaps my experience would be different if eating them in pepper form. 


This is just my personal perception. And, if I have learned nothing else in the past six years of growing hot peppers it is that personal taste varies widely!
