    pics Lets see your meanest, most gnarly pods!!!

    Harvested some 7 pot cinders today:   Not as gnarly as the Cinders, but I was pretty pleased with my death spirals, too.

    Anyone know anything about Armageddon Peppers?

    I grew out 2 plants of Armageddon peppers this year.  I had a lot of difficulty finding any information on this variety, and none of the sites I purchased seeds from list it.  The best I could find was this 6 year old thread (which includes a comment that ironically says to give them 6 years due...

    pics Lets see your meanest, most gnarly pods!!!

    Took an updated picture of that 7 Pot Cinder, plus one of my Death Spirals.  Those two varieties are by far the most gnarly I have growing.   Edit: Apologies, but I can't figure out how to rotate these.  They appear with normal orientation on my computer and phone, but rotate 90 degrees when...

    pics Lets see your meanest, most gnarly pods!!!

    7 pot cinder f3. This photo was taken at the beginning of the month. It's almost completely ripe. I'll try to remember to upload a picture when I get home this afternoon. Last I looked at it, it looked to be staying true to the desired caramel pheno.

    hybrid Eating mysterious peppers and my own words. (A rant on crossed seeds)

    So far all my open pollinated plants have grown true; it's the isolated F3 - F5 plants that I keep getting off-pheno oddities.

    Started plants off in poor quality mix, unsure of how to transplant.

    I just went through the exact same thing.  I transplanted about half my peppers into better soil, since I had used some cheap soil from Home Depot that had very poor drainage. I didn't rinse off the roots.  I just removed as much of the large clumps of poor soil, and re-potted in better soil. ...

    When and why you started growing peppers

    I've seen multiple references to Bishops Crown peppers having a much higher SHU rating (5,000 - 30,000) than Mad Hatters (500 SHU). I haven't tried Bishops Crown to confirm that heat level, but I grow Mad Hatters, and 500 is just about right.

    What To Do with Ornamental Pods?

    I've heard that many ornamental varieties of chiles can make a decent powder, which probably won't add much flavor, but will add a bit of heat to whatever you put it on.  I haven't tried this yet, though (none of my peppers are considered ornamental).

    topping pepper plants?

    Thank you for reporting your results. Yours were the only results I found. My takeaway from your results was that topping slowed initial growth, which resulted in less overall production. However... It also seems like you had a short season. Does this seem a fair assessment? Its been my...

    breeding New cross: how many plants do you keep in each generation?

    I stand by "rule of cool", though... "purple jalape├▒o" sounds much better than "jalape├▒o purple".

    breeding New cross: how many plants do you keep in each generation?

      I'm going to blame autocowreck on my phone for that one lol!  Even though its ironically easier to type an ñ on my phone than my laptop...     I agree on Fishapeño Red and Fishapeño  Orange, but it should be Purple Fishapeño, not Fishapeño  Purple.    The first one rolls off the tongue much...

    breeding New cross: how many plants do you keep in each generation?

    The fact that I fit a stereotype of new hobbyists will not stop me :) But space considerations in light of the information shared in this thread may force me to pick between a possible fishapeno and experimenting with vezena piperka crossed with... well, I'm not sure what yet. I was thinking...
