Cool looking long bean lol
What kind of heat do they have? hear their more flavorful then Cayenne.

haven't got a ripe one yet.

i grew thunder mountain longhorn and joes long to see which of these "long" cayenne is best. Another one is whippets tail but i didn't get seeds for that one.

#1559750 Yellow Scotch Bonnets

i think most of these originated from the same source (like 20+ years ago) but have been relabeled / selected for different traits now so they are a bit different.

There is one true phenotype, if yours look/taste different then you should accept that you got incorrect/untrue seeds and use a new source next year, not just keep growing it and give it a similar name.

relabeling a variety based on grade of pods is not correct either. just because the pods you got from say bob joe are A+ grade doesn't mean you need to name them scotch bonnet bob joe. it is simply scotch bonnet.
You never know he could have just presented you with the best pods from multiple plants, or maybe his growing conditions are just better than yours.
Or maybe he truly has better genetics. But it is still simply scotch bonnet...

It does make sense to keep track of what seed source has performed better for you. I guess people just got lazy and just relabeled the variety name.
Or you can take a more cynical look and say these names are differentiated to increase sales.
Distinguishing your product from the cheaper normal yellow scotch bonnet seeds, generating hype because it's "new", giving it a premium feel.

this is kinda the problem with naming varieties, there is no control. anyone could get seed from anyone and relabel it. (see the primo/reaper doubt/conspiracy *whether it's true or not*)

#1555304 Ideal spacing---in the Dirt---in rows & between rows

Posted by juanitos on 24 May 2018 - 10:33 AM

mine are double rows like this:






its like 1.5 ' between each plant


4' between rows for walking / harvesting / airflow





Spacing Spacing is very important to Scotch Bonnet pepper growth. Proper spacing will ensure maximum use of the land without overcrowding. Rows may be spaced 90 – 150 cm (3 - 5 ft) apart, with plants along the row at 90 cm (3 ft). For high density planting, rows 90 cm (3 ft) apart with plants 90 cm (3 ft) apart, is recommended, but only at low elevations.



Higher plant population densities are recommended. Accordingly, seedlings should be spaced at 3 ft x 2 ft (90 cm x 60 cm) producing 7,260 plants/ac (17,932 plants/ha), 2.5 ft x 2 ft giving 8,712 plants/ac (21,527 plants/ha) or 2 ft x 2 ft (60 cm x 60 cm) producing 10,890 plants/ac (26,898 plants/ha).

Where did you get those bags? I checked the site and couldn't find them. 


Why don't you stagger the plants in that system? It would give a little more room on the insides.




the plants fill up all available room anyway, but you're right a little stagger wouldn't be bad.
