Hey, new to this site, but far from new to growing.
Habajalokia or whatever his name is killed the last Carolina Reaper thread, so resurrecting it.
I started germinating the seeds on March 16. Will keep you posted. The last thread was full of rather ridiculous comments and speculations. 99.387% of the posts were useless.
How about a factual thread... featuring comments by people who are growing them (or at least have first-hand knowledge)? That's the intent here.
10 bucks for 10 seeds (actually, there were 14 in the packet)... so if they don't pan out per the hype, big deal. Sheeesh... a lot were acting like they were going to have to take out a second mortgage to buy them.
We need a new "world's hottest pepper"... Scorpions already have me bored. I hope these live up to the hype in the press... by the end of 2013 we will all know.
