Best peppers for powders?

02 October 2018 - 12:30 PM

Hello my friends,


What are, in your opinion, the tastiest peppers to make powders from? And what do you use them in?


I am looking to expand my spice rack a bit, and until now I've just powdered what I had. For next season I'd like to really grow a few varieties for the sole purpose of making delicious powders.


I have a smoker so anything is possible.


Fire away!

A great new growdown idea

Hey guys!


I've thought of a nice little competition for the coming season. Let's see who has the longest! So whip 'em out boys, unzip those zippers. We measure from the base to the tip. The calyx counts, but the peduncle doesn't. Yes, of course I'm talking about peppers, you pervert. I mean, everyone stores their peppers in a ziploc, right? 


All joking aside; let's see who can grow the longest Thunder Mountain Longhorn! Who's in?

Dulce Sol heat?!

29 August 2018 - 11:39 AM

Hi guys,


I'm growing the Dulce Sol from pepperlovers.com. It's a beautiful pepper, and I love the way it looks. On the website they describe the pepper as having no or no noticeable heat, but the pods I've picked are not heatless at all. I almost ruined my GF's meal by telling her to add it because it had no heat. Good thing I decided to eat a piece before adding it! 


Is it maybe an unstable strain? How are your experiences with it?





Another delicious created by us at pepperlover.com. This bright yellow beauty can be classified as sweet with low/no noticeable heat. A great, clean, crunchy, and sweet capsicum baccatum flavor with a remarkable citrus like flavor. Very productive variety, grown like a small low bush which makes it great for pots or hanging baskets.   


Save a broken branch?

Hey guys,

Has any of you ever tried to save a broken-off branch? The wind damaged one of my plants and a big branch broke off. It had loads of unripe peppers too.

Identity parade. I need your help!

Hey guys, I was in Hungary and Croatia this last few weeks and of course I tried to find some good regional peppers. Hungary is known for its paprikas but there was a box of hot peppers in one of the markets that caught my eye. It wasn't just some jalapeños and bird's eyes; it also had a pepper with a stinger. I said to myself: this guy knows his stuff. Now I need your help for some proper IDs. There are some obvious ones like habaneros and jalapeños, but there are quite a few I couldn't ID with any certainty.
