    Black ghost? Devils tounge? Carbonero?

    I got these from the seed train, they were labeled as King BOC, which they are clearly not. I suspect it’s a mix up of some sort, but I can’t remember the name of the person who added them to the seed train. What do you think these could be? They are around ghost pepper heat. Not overly sweet...

    harvesting Harvesting pollen for hybridization

    I’m looking to cross 2 of my plants but I can’t seem to get any pollen out of the flowers this season to transfer. I’ve even tried crushing the anthers to get it to release pollen, but it always seems barren of pollen. Are their any tricks or ideal times that I should observe when attempting this?

    Anyone interested in overwintering a few pepper plants? I'm starting fresh so I won't be needing these. Come save them before they end up in the compost pile. Most still have plenty of peppers on them. Gloucester Massachusetts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How to preserve peppers in oil?

    When I was younger my Italian grandfather always had a jar of hot peppers in oil. I loved the flavor, but have not found the same stuff he used to buy. It's been maybe 30 years since I've even seen it. I'd like to try to make my own but everything I read suggests that this is not...

    This is NOT a Jays peach right? Or is it?

    This one has been racking my brain all season. I can't figure out what it is. It was labeled as a jays peach ghost Scorpion, but it doesn't look right to me. I was thinking peach bhut, but even that doesn't seem right. Can anyone help? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Stabilizing for desired shape

    One of my plants is putting out some interesting shaped Moruga. I'd like to stabilize it so that it consistently produces "tulip shaped" pods. How many generations do you think it would take to achieve this goal? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Mold inside peppers

    I'm finding mold inside some of my peppers. I've searched the web and have not found anything that explains why this is happening. It's always the seeds that are moldy. I harvest my peppers as soon as they are nearly ripe, most with just a tinge of green still on them, so it's not because...

    water My Tap water ph is 9.0, is this ok?

    I hadn't put much thought into the quality of the tap water I water my plants with until just recently. I did a ph test and it came back high, 8.98. Is this acceptable or should I adjust it closer to 6.8-7.0? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Origin of the 7-pot BBG (bubble gum)

    I see a lot of crosses now that include the characteristic bleeding into the stem from the original BBG 7 pot, but where did that trait come from? How did the original bubblegum come to exsist?
