I would have harvested twice as many if it weren't for the holes being eaten in so many. The BT-K is not keeping the pests away well enough.
P!sses me off!
I would open that pepper and if the inside is okay, then just cut away the hole and use the rest.
P.S. Dang! that's a nasty looking pod!
I hope you are saving seed from those imperfect peppers, provided the seed is good. Actually, from all of them! Some of us are hoping to score these seeds CTT (Come The Trade.)
Also, Dennis has the right idea. Listen to him.
I'm still looking for real reaper seeds after a bad buying experience... Have red and peach ghosts, 7 pots and. 7 pots chocolate if you could spare some seeds!
Yes I can spare pods... Send me an email...

Does anyone out there know a good place to get already started Carolina Reaper plants near Durham North Carolina? I just moved down for school from MI and last year I grew some very successful Trinidad Moruga peppers and I would love to try Reapers this year since I'm in Carolina but I think I'm a bit late to start with seeds.
Seedlings can take up to 120 to produce mature fruit, that's mid-December if you had ideal growing conditions (Night time temps above 55ÃÂ°F and 10-12 hours of daylight.). If you were thinking of overwintering to get an early start on a harvest next summer that's different.
Hopefully someone can help you with a local outlet.
Those are good looking peppers! I wish my Reaper plant would stop blasting buds. It's probably ejected 30 little immature stems. We did have a pretty good hot snap last week which exacerbated things a bit. Interesting that my Brain Strain plant, which was smaller and less vigorous now has some pretty decent peppers on it:
I got my "Reaper" from Chili Plants. It was sad at first but is coming back. Planning overwintering if I can figure how in a small apartment.
Planted in April. It's a slow grower.
Hi Kclost, I sent you an email, please let me know if you didn't receive it. Thanks!
