Nothing wrong with just liking habanero (or whatever) as a max heat if that’s what works for you. Eat what you like. If you develop a tolerance and want more, delve back in to super hots. And I’d recommend you save those or upcoming seeds just for the hell of it. I’ve germinated nine year old ones in a last ditch effort before.Pimental said:I guess most of that is common to all people trying really hot peppers for the first time, so I'm not complaining - it was a good experience. But I can't really say I liked it. And I don't have a particular desire to continue to consume things that hot. I thought I would, but after that, the appeal for "extreme heat" is kinda gone in me. I'll grow the scorpion plant I've got and maybe make some sauce from it, but I threw out the seeds I'd saved, and I think I'm gonna stick to mostly less-hot varieties from now on.
I was kinda wondering if anyone had a similar experience with this?
This year I made a pure 7 pod Jonah fermented sauce and could not stop eating it. Sometimes if you eat enough super hots it gets you both ways in the bathroom if you know what I’m sayin. I’m just gonna stop posting there.
