    flavor Sugar Rush flavor?

    It's sad to hear about deception, but not surprising. Not many honest vendors left. Fowler I have had only good experience with. Bought seeds from him twice, and received a lot more than ordered. I always thought he was honest, but I have seen a few people mention him in bad words lately. I...

    chinense I'm confused about the Datil pepper

    I also grew the "wrong" Datil and was corrected when posting pictures online. Now I have exchanged some seeds with a friendly local Augustine grower ( so fingers crossed! The description of this pepper sounds so delicious. Scotch Bonnets are maybe...

    food-safety Is this Kahms yeast?

    Sorry for my bad explanation. It depends on what you want to achieve with this fermentation. Is it only peppers that you are fermenting for conservation / hot sauce? I would prefer to take the peppers out. Give them a rinse and then use them like you had planned. If you have yeast it means...

    food-safety Is this Kahms yeast?

    I can't be certain from the photos, but it looks like Kahm to me. Not dangerous, but my experience is that it will only get worse, and really change the flavor. If you stop the ferment now and use a spoon to remove the top you might save it. That is what I would do. I'm really impressed that...

    flavor Sugar Rush flavor?

    I disagree strongly. I only grow chilies / hot peppers for their flavor and have grown about 100 varieties every year in search of the best flavors. I have never been a big fan of c.baccatum, thats why I have only grown about 20 different varieties over all the years Ive been growing, so Im no...

    chinense Is there a favored Mexican orange habanero?

    It changes daily, but some of my favorites eaten fresh are Oxkutzcabian Orange, Sugar Rush Peach / Peppapeach, different scotch bonnets, Cumari do Para, Fatalii, Bhut Jolokia White, Yellow Naga (Drax) and many others I love sweet/tropical/fruity c.chinense without any chemical/bitterness. All...

    chinense Is there a favored Mexican orange habanero?

    In the last few years, I have grown around 100+ varieties every season, searching for the best flavors. And for me, the Oxkutzcabian Orange is in my top 10 list :). Absolutely fantastic flavor, that sort of reminds me more of sugar rush peach than an orange habanero. And a very productive plant...

    breeding Impotence in Capsicum?

    I haven't seen anything quite like this, but I have experienced sterile plants before. This season I had a fantastic Carboruga Yellow plant, that just grew MASSIVE. Perfect looking plant, FULL of flowers, but not a single fruit ever took. I tried everything with this plant, but in the end I...

    baccatum Soapy Baccatum Taste

    Its interesting that so many of you describe the baccatum flavor as soapy. Im not a big fan of baccatums, because to me they taste "grassy". I wonder if that is the same flavor you are talking about, but experienced differently by my tastebuds. SRP / Peppapeach and Aji fantasy white are the...

    baccatum Soapy Baccatum Taste

    This is the strangest statement ever! Im not a big fan of the flavor of baccatum, but god damn the sugar rush peach (and peppapeach) is an exception. Probably one of the best tasting peppers out there if you ask me! I haven't even thought of drying them, since they taste so good fresh

    misc Earliest hot peppers?

    I once read that when breeding plants for cold climates, you could sometimes use plants that have adopted to a very hot climate. That the genes are not specific to either hot or cold, but are good genes for coping with "extreme" temperatures in general. In my experience small/dwarf annuum...

    cloning Which branches for rooting cuttings?

    I would definitely go for green new branches! There are two different approaches that I use for clones. One is to take a lot of clones and just put in a cup of water. Usually a few will make roots. (Im guessing 1/4 or something, but there are probably lots of factors) The other approach is to...

    Norwegian Kratky Grow 2022

    Hi Forestman, I have never measured the PPM. I have found peppers to be very forgiving, and seems to thrive with both half and double the recommended dose of nutrients. I usually start with half and work my way up to the recommended dose, and then maybe go above when the plant is big and full...

    hybrid Pimenta Moranga Peach Cross... parents?

    Ah Pimenta Moranga! I had totally forgotten about that variety. That was one of the first plants I ever grew (!) a really beautiful plant. I got the seeds from Jes in Denmark about 10 years ago. Jes is also the guy behind the Pimenta Moranga Peach cross (or so it says on )...

    chinense Best Scotch Bonnet??

    They taste very lemon citrusy, and tropical with some scotch bonnet funk in the background. Personally, I think a MOA is better overall, but the Lemon Starrburs is the best lemon / citrusy pepper I have tasted. It's wonderful with fish and in alcohol drink etc.
