#1511067 Growdown Throwdown 2018!

Posted by ColdSmoke on Yesterday, 07:08 PM

Thanks for setting this up again Guru




#1510983 Growdown Throwdown 2017 Aji Lemon Drop!

Posted by ColdSmoke on Yesterday, 01:54 PM

Some thoughts on baccatums:

Aji Amarillo

Aji Benito

Aji Golden

Aji Fantasy

Malawi Piquante

Peruvian Giallo Arancio ( I have grown these last two seasons and it is a heavy producer of smaller Aji Amarillos )

Aji White Lightening Bolt ( might be hard to get seeds )

 

 

The Malawi Paiquante looks pretty awesome

The company is on it's 3rd owners, they bought the brand, so please, no bashing without any experience with the current mgmt. Give them a chance at least.

 

they have a lot of mending to do...

What about the Dorset Naga? IMO the best producer of the jolokia family.

 

I would be down for that sense we did lemon drops this year...

Amarillos take forever to ripen in the NW. I wouldn't have a weigh in until late October!

Great ideas, John. Might be good to have latitude

categories, as well, so the northern growers aren't

handicapped by a short season.

 

I'm afraid I won't be participating next season, as we

are going to be away for awhile this Spring.  Only going

to grow Tristen's cross for 2018.  If anyone is interested

in giving the PDN x Bonda Ma Jacques a try, let me know.  

I still have enough seeds for 4 or 5 growers.  The thread

will continue into the next season so folks' results can be

posted in a central location as we head into the F6 season.

So far we have about a dozen participants.

 

Yep regional throw downs are a good idea; it makes sense for the playing field to be level. 




#1509155 Persimmons Hot Sauce

yeah I was confused...although bells have worked great in the sauces I have used them in. In this case the persimmon would provide the sweetness...

I second the agave nectar and orange bell peppers and carrots (for bulk)

Sauce, mash, powder, jelly, finger foods, all the above!

 

 

I'm down with a 2018 for sure! We should probably start thinking about strain selection now if so, huh guys? 

 

I'm down!

Alright Mike, I popped the top on the Original Recipe tonight. First thing I did was inhale that wonderful aroma. All I know is I had a huge grin on my face after smelling the stuff. Knew I was going to love this one.

Took a good spoonful of it straight....oops. This one is pretty hot, had to grab a few tortilla chips, which never really helps but didn't want to fill up on bread. Caught about 4 hiccups and then I'll admit to you, as long as you don't tell anybody, I took a little bit of milk. The real burn went away at that point but it still lingered. Yea, I like this sauce and it's my favorite so far.
 

 

The original recipe hit me hard as well. I put too much on my mornin taters and I paid the price! Delicious price!

To update on the Aji Amarillos. I pulled like 12 that should a little bit of orange color and after a week on the kitchen counter they all ripened to the deep orange amarillo color. There are quite a few more out there so I'll do before and after pics

These are our Flathead.

They are very prolific, and can grow to over 3ft long. They are also known as Frogs here, I guess they kinda look like a lizard too. They make for great eating either way. 

 

SR. 

 

Those look a lot like ling-cod and with that white flaky meat I bet they are delicious!
