Interesting idea! We have to make sure we get the RIGHT Peri Peri though,C frutescens, NOT the long annuum floating around that many think is Peri Peri. Tried explaining this to Chilichump and others, but hey, as long as they enjoy it, it doesn’t matter what they call it, haha

I was thinking of adding @PaulG and @Trippas Purple Thunder to the list too. I have just sent a huge bag to @PaulG but have one other bag if we decided on it. We have a ton of options obviously.
No surprise Chilichump doesn't no but at least the informations there, but the knowledge has to be learnt as you know.
 
Congrats to all that pulled pods from the grow down you all are legends!!

Maybe next time I'll have a chance. Here is my current plant only starting to set fruit now

Ok dudes and dudettes...

As per the customary flex, I'd like all GrowdownThrowdown King's loot to be sent to second place. Once again that would be @ColdSmoke - Everyone get with him on address.

As for GDTD 2022.... we really need to get on the poll options now.


So far, my suggestions are:

C. pubescens "Mini Olive Rocoto"
C chinense dominant "Purple Thunder"
C chinense dominant "Pink Biquinho"


Feel free to make more suggestions so I can get the new thread and poll started

I like the mini olive rocoto.


Also, as this will be my first time competing, what is this kings loot, that way I know what I have to send to the winner.

That purple thunder sounds like a winner 🀩 the Cap 455 Baccatum will also do nicely.

Purple Thunder sounds good but would it be stable enough yetπŸ€”
Cap 455 baccatum seems like a great option too IMO

The Purple Thunder yellow/caramel seeds are F5.
The pods have had the gnarly yellow/caramel
appearance since F2. No change in the F6 that
@Glen_ grew out in 2020. The F5 are all isolated
from @Pepper-Guru's grow 2021.

Don't know if the seeds you sent me were those harvested by Guru but my pods were slender and not as big nor gnarly than his. That's basicaly why I was wondering about the stability (to avoid any bias between the contenders other than weather and grow skills).
