Topics I've Started

7 Pot x Red Congo F1

20 September 2015 - 09:18 AM

This is my first crack at making a cross, its not the gnarliest looking or whatever but she is pretty to me.  I made this cross with a taste in mind, its has a smooth fruityness and a tiny hint of the smokiness brought on by the Red Congo.  The heat I would estimate right around 1 - 1.1mil SHU.  Its not an instant burn, takes about 10 seconds for heat to start building, and you get an overall mouth burn and a good concentration right in the back of the throat. 


I am not a professional reviewer so I may n the future share with a professional reviewer like Nigel Carter. 








I have already shared this cross with two people, I wounder what the f2 stage will look like.  :D




Maris Biber maybe?

I git these seeds and they were marked as something else.  As near as I can figure from taste, heat and size they are Maras Biber.  Can anyone confirm? 






Datil Pepper ... Yes or No?

I was sent seeds for Datil peppers, I am aware that there is more than one type of Datil so I say this.... Is this a Datil pepper type?  It sets dozens of peppers at a time on the plant and they dont get very big, this is a really well producing compact plant.  It really surprises me how many pods it sets at a time.  I have cleared this plant 3 times already this summer and it is full again. 






Thanks for the help. 

Aji Type?

Seeds were gifted me and marked Jay's Red Ghost Scorpion. 


Its a mild to Medium heat pepper, plant is a big bushy Aji type looks to me.  Pods are crunchy and firm with a bit of sweetness. 




Any Ideas on this?

Well these seeds were labeled Jays Red Ghost Scorpion but not even in same hemisphere, lol. 










It would be great to get an idea, I had thought that these may be Aji Mango but the color doesnt look quite right? 


Thx for any ideas!
