Thanks Eric. If all goes well maybe even better by the end of the year.

Paul. Tried my first choc hab last night. It was so tasty. I think it maybe my new favorite!

Josh can't wait to see some of your ripe pods. Here is a small harvest from yesterday. The 3 choc habs are standouts!

Esox your harvest pics never fail to get my stomach growling, those lemon drops are beckoning me!

An idea since the Choco Habs are impressing you: consider sparing a little extra room and put the Jamaican Hot chocolates on your list for next year. I keep reading that there's a difference in taste and most seem to prefer the Jamaicans for whatever reason. I wonder what people would people would call a cross between the two....double chocolate?

Hmmm...

Jamie, you sure know your way around a camera. Man, those are great pictures. Now you have to ID the peppers in the harvest for us.

Wow, so out of all those peppers you picked that Chocolate Hab was your favorite huh?

Now isn't the Chocolate Hab also from Jamaica? Is there really another Chocolate pepper from Jamaica?

Beautiful Chocolate Habs!

So what did you think of the aroma? Did you find it to overwhelm the senses?
I find the flavor profile a perfect compliment to a barbecue grilled tritip.

Sjetski Thank you for the kind words. I was reading a thread about the two choc habs and they seem very similiar. I would love to try the Jamaicans if they are anything like my chocolate habs!

Kosher. That is quite a compliment. I have been fortunate enough this year to have lots to photograph . That and I am constantly picking the brains of fellow chiliheads.!

Josh my man. I fell in love with it the moment I cut it in half. It did not have the pungent earthy smell of most habs. More of a sweet smoky aroma. Man i want to smoke a big batch and make some sauce. Hungry.

Just wanted to show how big my Bhut is( no pun intended) . He seems to double in size every day.Even is starting to bud. Can't be a day over 6 weeks old. Growing in the shade with limited light. The Brain strain next to him is also growing like a weed.

And here is a mystery pepper pod. Looks hot!

good looking mystery pepper jamie, I have several on the fourth gen batch, Lost tags you know, Im pretty sure there is an aji lemon in there, i know there was a barrackapore, a choc bhut a pinguita de mono, a masquerade, a yellow scorpion, another 7pot and some others but I cant remember which others sprouted and which ones are which for the most part, the pinguita and masquerade are pretty obvious from the pods( masquerade is the only purple pepper I planted, purple is the girl's favorite color, and pinguita is the only tiny pod pepper I planted, beyond that I know there were alot of chinense in the 2nd 3rd and 4th germinations and a few in the 5th too ;) love those superhots!

Paul,I know all about lost tags. My lil angel pulled the tags out of about 18 seedlings earlier this year. I was frustrated at first but it has been fun trying to figure out what is what. Here are a couple nice pics my son and I took last night.
Baby Bhut started in July!


It is starting to bud!

And a nice pic of the mystery pod. Hoping it is a bhut or naga dorsett.

Nice pics there Jamie. I also grabbed a Bhut right in the end of July from a good local nursery, we will have to compare their progress. It has been flowering but dropping the buds, about the same size as yours but not as impressive leaves.

Oh, and I see two Datil seedlings poking out of the soil today. Thanks again!

Phil may man! That is really cool you already have some Datil hooks. I just had my first douglah,choc bhut,and yellow cardi's sprout. Now it's a race to get them big enough to survive the mild Florida winter! Have I seen any pics of your bhut ? I don't recall but it will be interesting to see if we get some nice pods!

Chef Paul. It is always good to hear from you. Thanks for the kind words .

Hey Julie. Fancy meeting you here. I have a feeling you will be getting some choc hab seeds. Jamie

Hey Bruce . It is actually called an Assassin bug. My friend that works in the entomology division at U of F is the one who told me what it is. I live on the east coast of Florida and have heard from other chiliheads, even northern chiliheads, that have seen this awesome predator!

Chef Paul. I do not consider you a first year grower. Your plants can attest for that. But bring on the Dragon fly's!

Lots and lots of Dragon flies around here in Wisconsin too. Here is a picture I took a week or two ago. He is sitting on top of the support stake for my Orange Habanero. I have named him the Stealth Dragon Fly because of his clear wings. He is watching over my Hab, keeping it safe from enemies foreign and domestic.

yikes, found another horn worn yesterday evening on one of our large bhuts --- this thing must have been 4 inches! they blend into the leaves quite well and stick pretty good, so you have to trim but makes good pruning anyway.

getting ready for the hurricane, but looks like it's moving east now, thank goodness --- but we'll still be moving plants inside just in case. we've got some nice fruit/flowering and don't want to lose them.

Keep the chili voodoo coming! The storm's heading up to NC and then to the northeast --- and looking pretty rough out there. The cooler weather with some good rains will be welcome after no relief from all this heat, but winds will be packing as a Cat 3 (111-130 mph), yikes!

we've also kept most of our bhuts in containers, even though it can be quite a haul to bring inside, esp. the 6-7 footers, yikes those things are heavy! a few weeks ago, we staked up a large area around some in-ground stuff and ran plastic sheeting across to provide some wind cover. it worked pretty well but of course we didn't have 100+ mph winds, and not certain it would have held up to that. for the inground plants, I suppose have solid staking is the best option to try to keep the plants intact, but harvest as much fruit as possible pre-storm. heat, quakes, hurricanes, yikes how much more can a chili pepper take!

Nice Jamie... I had sowed a couple seeds to chiletepen this spring
and thought the plant had died because I couldn't find it. There
was one little plant without the label and it was a wimpy looking
thing. It turned out to be the chilitepin. It's not a really large
plant right now, but for it's size it has lots of little red peppers.
I am going to overwinter it.

Thought I would share what I got in the mail this weekend. More chili love from Wayright!You could not imagine my reaction when I opened up the box.

It was choc full of 7 pod yellow,assam bhut's,T.S Morouga Blend,7 pod chocolate,Brain strain(7 pod variety),yellow bhuts and Douglah's . So I have tried the bhuts,7 pod choc,yellow bhut, and last night my wife and I had the Brain. Talk about some wicked heat but awesome flavor. The chocolate 7 and brain hurt me the most with the Brain strain taking top honors. Here is a couple close ups.
TS Morouga Blend. This one scares me. Gonna try it tonight!

Couple more pics. Brain Strain. The wife and I split one last night with dinner. When I cut it in half the flavor almost knocked me out. It was dripping in oil . My mouth and throat burned for it seemed like eternity. It had a very earthy taste to it. But after a second I couldn't taste anything.

7 pod yellow

jamie: wow, what a box full there!

yes, we're still experimenting for the right amount of the turkey ghost rub. we typically soak the whole turkey overnight in mojo sauce -- you wouldn't believe how tender the results! the next morning we drain most of the sauce but leave a bit to mix with drippings, along with butter and ghost rub seasoning on skin before going into oven. the mixture is our concoction of onion, garlic, cayenne and ghost powder, as well as a few surprises from the pantry and some freshly dried herbs like basil from our garden. once turkey is done,we then take some of the drippings to use for gravy, with fresh sliced mushrooms. definitely lots of blessings this year!

Yes Josh. Kev has a lot of love to spread.Have you seen his garden lately. It is sick!

Kevin It is nice to hear from ya. You were right about the Douglah. It is not for the faint at heart or back a me throat:)

Aj's mama! Thank you for the kind words. I think they took about 3 days to arrive. They were in perfect condition. I have sent fresh peppers to California ( I live in Florida) in a small flat rate box. Took about 3 days and they were fine. If you do it next day air they will be prestine!

Bruce. That mojo sounds fantastic. Do you have room for 4 more this thanksgiving. I could be there in about a 3 1/2 hour drive down I4 lol. And you must send me some of that tasty rub!

Hey! I saw Kevin's most recent video, but I sure want to see more!
His yard is a veritable pepper jungle!

When I mail peppers, I try to pick them just before they've fully ripened;
that way they'll be coloring up in transit and perfect when they arrive.

Speakin' of Thanksgiving...my brother made Chipotle sweet potatoes last year.
One pepper per two potatoes, along with a tablespoon of the adobo/chipotle sauce.

Just yesterday, one of my buddies (very heat sensitive) ate his first Thai chile.
The heat haunted him for about ten minutes (which was about six minutes longer than I could detect heat).
Anyhow, slow and steady wins the race... ;-)

The powders got me ready( i guess ) for the fresh. But the Brain and Douglah are off the charts. I would love to see you grow the Brain. Hint hint. And almost everyone's favorite the Douglah. Send me an email and we will make it happen!
Bruce sorry to hear about your family but it sounds like it will be a plus for everyone. Still waiting on those pics of your Bhut's. And no not your butt. LOL

Romy, those 7 Pod yellow look fantastic!
My Serranos took a welcomed turn to the dark side this past week. All of august I was plucking these as they looked ripe and there was minimal heat, slightly more than your average grocery store jalapeno. This week, as they start to turn red, they have risen in heat and flavor. You can rarely find red ripe serranos in the grocery store (because they spoil faster than the green). I highly recommend letting these common chiles mature. I was doubting that I would even grow serranos this year, and I am glad i did.

I can't eat the super hot peppers fresh. I don't like pepper pain.
Most of my peppers I'm making into a powder, a little goes a long
way. Right now I'm sprinkling tobasco powder on my pizza, it
sure is good.

Those are some nice peppers kevin sent you Jamie. I will be growing
1 or 2 brain strain peppers next year.

Peppermeister. My wife does not like the Jal's red so I pick them when they start corking. Seem to have the most heat as well. Mine seem to loose heat as the ripen.

Bruce, I suck at this computer thing too I just have a lot of good friends that help me.

Linda. I prefer the super hots dried as well. They really hurt me the next day fresh. But every chilihead should experience the rush of eating a piece of a super hot chili!

Man, what sweet pics! Kevin is awesome...and so are you, Jaime!
Thanks for the hot pepper love you sent my way. I can vouch for Jaime's Chocolate Habs
and Dorsets...they are hot, indeed. And the Datil peppers are simply delicious.

Jamie, awesome peppers and darlings too. Wayright sent a treasure trove of great peppers I see. A suggestion for those lost tags on plants. Get some paint pens in the crafts section of Walmart..they work terrific!!!! AJ's wife is the one who suggested it, just passing it along. It's what he uses. Thanks for the seeds and I have some hotter ones now that our garden is winding down, I'll send them your way. Jackie aka pepperfever on THP

T sheets thanks for checking it out.

Josh, I took great pleasure in passing you some heat. Just curious how the red savina's where?Do you think they were hotter than the Dorsett Naga? Any hoot can't wait to see those seeds sprout for ya next year!

Hey Jackie long time no hear.It is funny that you say use a marker cause I have recently been marking all my pots with a permanent marker( lil angel can't remove them). Glad to hear your garden beat the aphids. Now If I could only get rid of mine. And your gonna love that African Tunisian. Great for stuffing and grilling!

Hey Bruce. Thank you for looking and yes I am so blessed to have my angels. If you have any extra dragonfly powder send it my way. Straight down I4. LOL

romy: seems that the dragonflies are not as plentiful as they were earlier this summer, but we're still seeing several arounh here ... so we'll definitely send some up I4 your way :) still quite a few ladybugs, too -- which is a good thing because we've noticed a few more aphids this week, yikes!

Hey, Jaime!

Savinas were definitely hot (and very sweet), but that particular Dorset pod you sent....
man, that was an inferno! That was hotter than any other pepper I've had this year.

That is sweet my brotha. I just had a naga and it got me good. Still weird that the savina wasn't that hot. Thanks Josh

Must be nice to grow outside in December. Looks like the weather is not the only warm thing in your area right now.

Meanwhile, I have only my Hungarian sittin' on the window-sill....

Those torpedo Bhuts look like a cross to me.
