    chinense Best Scotch Bonnet??

    Does the Lemon Starrburst rank among the best? It seems to be a trendy pepper at the moment. I am going to try growing it next year.

    chinense Best Scotch Bonnet??

    How do you define scotch bonnet? How do you define habanero? How could a scotch bonnet variety not taste like a scotch bonnet? The disagreement has to do with the definitions of scotch bonnet and habanero, rather than the characteristics of individual pepper varieties. Few will argue that...

    video Now those are what you call a scotch bonnet!

    My understanding is that selecting the best pods is a flawed technique. Entire plants should be selected for their traits, rather than individual pods. A seed from a badly shaped pod, from a plant that produces mostly properly shaped pods, is fine for seeds. A seed from a perfectly shaped...

    Black scorpion tongue. The plants that initially grew sideways towards the south, they have filled in nicely with vertical branches coming from the original now horizontal trunk. Maybe my efforts with staking last year were unnecessary.

    Black Scorpion tongue has a nice flavor, like a sweet bell pepper, but with heat. Exceeded my expectations for an ornamental variety. Potted plants continue to grow well. Plants in ground continue with relatively slow growth. I am going to try fertilizing more aggressively.

    Black scorpion tongue has been slowly ripening for the last few days. Interesting colors, the pod was brown at one point, orange now, and I am expecting it to turn red soon.

    misc Single pepper variety vs blend

    Do you prefer to make your sauces with a single variety of peppers? Or with a blend of multiple varieties? I have been mostly making single variety sauces as a way to explore and compare the different peppers.
