#1575442 Pimenta De Neyde x Bonda Ma Jacques

Posted by Bhuter on Today, 02:20 PM

Gettin' there with the purple version.

Got a couple ripe on the white version.

Ok....I was under the impression that these would be around Habanero-heat range. That's what I told a friend. This was way hotter. He ate half the pepper and his face is still in my driveway. Lol

Intense super-hot smell. I didn't try any. But you can tell it's hot. He said it was a great citrusy flavor!

Couldn't wait for any of them to ripen, sooooo.....here's an unripened Purple Ghost Scorpion...seeds from Mojo.


I wonder if that deep purple with change when they ripen.

#1573023 Favorite NEW TO YOU variety you grew this year

Posted by Bhuter on 03 August 2018 - 12:39 PM

From the very beginning, this plant has been a beaut! Great purple "overlay" color over the green foliage. Then it started producing pods. They are all EXACTLY the same pheno. The pods start a deep black color, the purple lightens up, then it lightens up to a green, then finally they're supposed to ripen to red. I couldn't wait any longer and wanted to see if the purple placenta presented itself for me. I'd say so. 😏

Purple Ghost Scorpion from Mojo.



Definitely a keeper!!!

Saving the best for last Bhuter's SB7J having grown this variety for many seasons I have never had such perfect shaped pods. Thanks for the seed Adam

Yes!!!! I'm super-stoked that you didn't get crossed seeds!!! You are most welcome, my friend! I love this variety. Firm and crunchy with an amazing flavor! And it might be a little spicier than you're expecting. Kinda leanin' towards the Jonah in that area. Very, very nice, John!!!

Looking great, Mike! Yeah, bummer about the Douglahs goin' red. I don't have a Douglah either, but the Chocolate Primo that I'm growing from Butch T looks very Douglah-esque. Thin walled feeling.


But, I too, would gladly send anything if you need it. I have those Cappuccino Scotch Bonnets, too. 👍🏻

I like when I forget about receiving something awesome in the mail and then it just arrives. That happened today with this fantastically-drawn artwork on a bottle of homemade sauce from Andy (Walchit).


Thank you very much my friend!!! You rock!!!

Here are some Peach Bhut WM pics. There weren't any fully opened flowers this morning, so I'll get that pic later.

The day is coming. If we can do monkeys, humans can't be far behind.


There isn't a doubt in my mind that he/she is already walking around with us. People do things in secret all the time. VERY scary.

Holy produce section!!!! I'd like to shop around in your garden for a bit. Lol. 👍🏻

Very cool-looking pods Adam... they look like Gochus to me, or maybe Gochu crosses as the name suggests. How do you use them?
Thanks for the good vibe, I'm hoping we're past the hump this growing season and will be able to coast a bit until harvest. This is the first time I've grown a Malagueta, so I don't know exactly what to expect, but I've grown PeriPeri, Tabasco, Lotah Bih and Guam Boonies... all Frutascens chiles, and they have a similar flavor and heat profile. I expect I'll use them for Louisiana-style hot sauce since my current stash is getting a little low. I love the "Dougies" but they are not a sweet and/or fruity pepper. I smoke them with cherry wood to improve the aroma and flavor, and use them in powder blends and tomato-based hot sauces to kick the heat up a few notches.     Cheers!

I'm not quite sure on the usage of Haskorea peppers...and neither do the seed savers. Lol. They say "We are only beginning to explore its culinary potential." I imagine you'd flake them, much like the Aleppo. As far as pod shape and flavor profile:

Haskorea is smaller and less blocky than 'Aleppo' (which is usually turned into a chili powder), but with a richer, spicier flavor.

I'll bet Douglahs are fantastic smoked. I've only tried fresh. But mixed with a bonnet or something after smoking WOULD improve that acrid flavor. A great chef mind in Mass.! Lol. Here's to great weather!!! :cheers:

#1571625 Your favorite pepper variety

Posted by Bhuter on 28 July 2018 - 01:50 PM

Here's an interesting one. Candy Cane. It's variegated throughout the plant and the immature, growing pods are also variegated until they mature. Then they turn solid green, then red. Hmmm.

Aji Oro (Rocoto)




That's the best leaf pic I have, I guess.



FULL DISCLOSURE: Some of these pics MAY be a Brown Rocoto. It's kinda hard to tell. They're last years' pics.

Fantastic, Rick! Pods everywhere!!! Nice Aleppo's! I'm gonna try those out next season, but this year I have a Haskorea.

I'll bet mealtime at your house is the place to be! Very nice stuffing peppers. I'm interested in the Malagueta. It looks kinda like the Peri-Peri. Good pepper if it had less seeds. Lol. Growdown plant is killing it! And I might grow a Douglah again next year. I'm a huge fan of the Brown Moruga PL, though. That cross would be a scorcher. Lol. Great stuff! Keep it up!
