The Mushroom is from an original red variety, with medium smallZippy said:That is quite the list. You're going to have to do some serious organizing of your seed trays.
I try to be careful with labeling, etc. So far so good.
I was surprised how late your JA mushrooms were in the season. I had never seen a red variety until you posted and wondered if the lateness was because they pack more heat? I had the yellow ones and did a test both in a pot and in the ground. The pot ripened up about 5 days sooner which in my short season is important. The ground grew a larger plant, heavier bearing and with larger pods. Their size was impressive, they came out a little larger than golf balls. They were hot enough for me.
Do you give second attempts for some of your peppers Paul?
Not sure what you mean here, Zippy. Do you mean replacement
seeding if some don't germinate, or trying one out a second season?

more plants in the 10-gallon and up containers, and
a couple of more 3-gallon grow pots. Will have around
40-45 plants, about normal for my grow.

of the plants produced brown pods. These plants came from that
plant's seed. I was hoping for the brown pods, but got the giant
reds instead. Excellent flavor and mild heat. Will grow again next
season for sure. Maybe one on a big container, and one in a
3-gallon can to put in the greenhouse or garage to finish off in
To be honest, my tastebuds suck. Things taste pleasantZippy said:I meant if you had an off season would you try certain varieties again in the hopes they might taste differently?

Good luck this season; and don't forget the weather swap!
