    chinense Are there any habaneros from the Philippines?

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know of any habanero varieties from the Philippines? I know Vietnam, Malaysia and Hainan Island, as well as Myanmar all have variants of the habanero, so I've been wondering if the Philippines do, too. I can't seem to find any info on them if there is, though.

    Yeah, that white bhut sounds interesting, for sure.

    hybrid Pimenta Moranga Peach Cross... parents?

    So how did it grow for you in Norway? Was it well suited to the climate there? Do you grow under cover, or in a greenhouse? Heated/ unheated? Just curious, because the west coast of Canada I think might be very similar to your area, climate wise. We're pretty challenged with what we can grow...

    hybrid Pimenta Moranga Peach Cross... parents?

    So I recently came across this really interesting sounding hybrid, but the only info I can find on its parentage is that one of the parents is a chinense called Pimenta Moranga. Does anyone know what the other parent is? Does the "peach" in the name refer to 'sugar rush peach' by any chance? I...

    baccatum Lemon Reaper (aji lemon drop x carolina reaper)

    That doesn't sound all to surprising, considering how unstable it is at F4. If I'm not mistaken, I think this year is F4, so next year will be F5. Perhaps the F5 generation will show some interesting variations that can be selected from. I'm still hopeful that these kinds of crosses could be...

    baccatum Lemon Reaper (aji lemon drop x carolina reaper)

    Hi there, was just wondering if anyone has tried growing the new Lemon Reaper (aji lemon drop x carolina reaper)? From the looks and sounds of it, this an amazing pepper, combining both lemon drop fruitiness with near super-hot heat levels. Have any of you tried growing it out? Have you tasted...

    annuum Frost hardiness of chiltepins from the SW US...

    I meant, specifically, if there are wild plants that survive in the ground (wild) in USDA hardiness zones 7 and/or 8. That means they could be evergreen or they could be just root hardy, or anything inbetween. And in the strictly biological sense, to "survive" means to be able to produce...

    annuum Frost hardiness of chiltepins from the SW US...

    Does anyone know just how frost hardy some of the wild chiltepins can get from the SW states? I hear the temperatures can get pretty low in the "Sky Island" mountains of Arizona and New Mexico. Do any of them survive in USDA zone 8-7 areas in that region?

    chinense Chinense Flavor in PNW

    Another one that comes to mind is Purira, a very hot annuum, early and adapted to cool conditions. The fruits have a drier flavor, and not much aroma. I seem to remember a few years back, I think a grower from Portland told me that MAO scotch bonnets and Bahamin goat's pepper worked well for...

    chinense Chinense Flavor in PNW

    The variety that I would recommend right off the bat after reading your post is Safi Scotch Bonnet. I live in BC, just north of you in the Metro-Vancouver area, and I've been attempting to grow chinense's up here as well, where our climate is almost identical to yours. Safi is early, productive...

    frutescens Earliest Thai Pepper Varieties?

    Hi Talas, do you grows these outside, on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse? Cheers.

    frutescens Earliest Thai Pepper Varieties?

    Sounds interesting. Do you have links to info on this variety, by any chance? Edit: never mind, found it.

    frutescens Earliest Thai Pepper Varieties?

    I realize that "Thai pepper" could describe virtually any pepper that traditionally hails from Thailand, but what I'm referring to, specifically, is the roughly 2in long, skinny red peppers, with a quick dry heat, sold in all the grocery stores in the Metro-Vancouver region. Everyone here calls...

    baccatum Earliest baccatums?

    I would imagine Denmark's climate is pretty close to parts of BC, especially our outer coast. I think we have a member on the forum who often complains about not being able to get any peppers to ripen in either Tofino or Ucluelet, which are both in the heart of the temperate rainforest. Even...
