Haha METALLIC, that's the best word to describe the one I was talking about as well! Chemical/metallic@dragonsfire I grew a few that tasted "soapy" to me but my record holder was the Madre Vieja Was supposed to lean towards grapefruit/tropical flavors but for some reasons it tasted like pure soap!!! Another great deception was the 7 Pot Slimer; bitter AF, metallic and chlorophyll flavors blended all together (if it makes sens!). I think it's the only variety that went directly from the garden into my compost bin!!
But it's not completely lost if it's insanely hot and tastes good but mild. I have tasted some insanely hot chilis where there was now taste at all but only heat. Then you have lost it. People should stick to what is the hottest and tastiest chili you have growed. We have way too many crosses today and it gets boring.I have had a few terrible tasting varieties myself over the years Sometimes when people breed for looks or heat, the flavor isn't a high priority.
Last year I had an amazing scorpion / reaper cross, (I don't remember the name) which produces an amazing amount of really hot fruits, but they all had a bitter/chemical taste that made them useless for anything! such a waste
I really like the flavor of those peppers
Those who hate it possibly share the same gene cluster that makes cilantro taste like soap, it is not unusual for people to taste things differently.How did it taste to you? Flaming hot eucalyptus oils soap?
Fruity and hot. Not floral at all.How did it taste to you? Flaming hot eucalyptus oils soap?
Bummer. I grew Aji Omnicolor from CPI seeds years ago. I grew out several plants because I had heard good things about it, and all of them grew true. If you decide to try again, maybe consider using CPI's seeds.I think I'm up to 4 attempts now, maybe 5 of growing Omnicolor without having Omnicolor to show for it.
