    seeds How will you germinate your 2024 chilli peppers ?

    I'm certainly not an expert on seed starting as I've been reading all the different methods and my head hurts ;) Some i had never heard of! I have however had very good success with putting seeds in a plastic cup of lukewarm (at time of pouring) distilled water and leave overnight. I...

    misc Aji Brazilian Starfish?

    I have added that to my plan next year after reading more about it here. I had toyed with it a couple times, but I already have seeds on hand now for '24. Looking forward to that being one of my new additions - and from sound of it, I likely will be growing again. I love flavor in peppers and...

    Nice little article about Ed Currie

    I'll let you know. I have a few more Habanero Jellies to make and some to dry - but if I do have too many - I certainly will reach out. I could have hooked you up for sure about a month ago. I was trying to figure out what in the hell to do with 8 gallon bags of them in my freezer (I know...

    news Pepper X Officially takes the title

    I think the answer to that question is... "yes". 😁

    Nice little article about Ed Currie

    Could be the Apocalypse Scorpion seeds you had. ? I thought mine had a decent taste to them - but agree they are potent and the heat kicks in fast. Those were extreme producers until about a couple weeks ago. My Carolina Reapers are by far the hottest (16 of them in my 5 gallon buckets on my...

    Nice little article about Ed Currie

    I just froze another gallon bag I had and made another Habanero Pepper Jelly with others. Temperature has dropped way faster this year than usual... not sure how many I will get going forward - but if I do get a bunch more I will reach out. If not, remember next year as I always have tons. I...

    I do resemble that remark :)

    Nice little article about Ed Currie

    Certainly can't argue with that. I made myself some "HOT" Bread and Butter pickles... using about 16 Apocalypse Scorpions (batch made 10 quarts) and they are amazing. I wanted a hot pickle for hamburgers or sandwiches that isn't washed out by all the other flavors... I got it :)

    Nice little article about Ed Currie

    You got it. I personally believe a pepper showing color change (mature to maturing) ripen faster off the plant than on it. I saw this with Tomato's years ago and have been doing it this way for peppers since. I'm very curious what your test finds. I picked around 16k peppers last year off of...

    Nice little article about Ed Currie

    To be honest, I don't see a difference to taking them off when they first show signs of color... (Especially true in Tomatoes as well) The plant can focus on getting the next flowers popping and producing more. Of course some here might disagree with me as I would never say I know it all. I've...

    misc Aji Brazilian Starfish?

    I grow these every year. Or should say attempt to. I've had about as much success with these germinating as I have the Datil (true Datil). I START them, sometimes they don't take. This year was a good year for both. I would say they are definitely worth growing. Sweet on the outside and...

    annuum Thai peppers

    I've often had same issue finding/growing Thai peppers. Nothing irks me more then when I spend months babying seedlings/plants - to put 20+ in a garden and find out months later that they aren't what I wanted or thought I had! Every seed seller - has something they call "Thai Dragon" or "Thai...

    Nice little article about Ed Currie

    Not the picture I wanted to post - but can't seem to find the other one :) Here are couple weekends ago - just Carolina Reapers (ripening - will go full RED in basket) along with White Trinidad Scorpions and few Apocalypse Scorpions. I have better pictures - will find - and do better sharing.

    flavor What would be your Greatest Hits of pepper flavors?

    Lol. If I was being stranded with just one pepper it likely would be the Cayenne (even though would still be tough call!). That was the pepper that started me down this crazy path to begin with. SO many health benefits for getting Cayenne Peppers in your diet. :)

    flavor What would be your Greatest Hits of pepper flavors?

    Agree with so many of these posts. I would say find your peak level of heat and go with things in that range. With the 40+ varieties I grow every year (approx 550 pepper plants - and around 16,000 hot peppers a year) I have staples every year that I have to have. I always have around 5 new...

    Can't go wrong with Orange Habanero's. I've had abundance of those the last couple years (around 5 gallon bags in freezer currently from '23) :) Course might be because I have around 80 Habanero Plants. It makes one of my favorite Jelly's. Lather that on some chicken to caramelize on the...

    Nice little article about Ed Currie

    Agree with you. While several don't care for him - I have enjoyed the Carolina Reaper and had pretty good success growing. He does seem a little odd (but who amongst us isn't that? :) ) I too can appreciate that he's built quite an empire and has quite a setup in South Carolina. I've read...

    shopping Can a few of you suggest some vendors for seeds?

    Agree with Baker Creek (www.rareseeds.com) being a good start. But have had good success with Sandia Seed, Seed Savers Ex, Bohica Pepper Hut and Totally tomatoes for sweet peppers and tomatoes for sure. Trying Refining Fire Chilis and Tyler Farms for the first time this coming season.
