Picked my first Billy Goat today. It's a very pretty pepper. My wife and I are about to sample it. I'll let you know how it taste later.
Gratz haven't introduced billy goats to any of my gardens yet i hear they eat a lot more then just grass ....LOL let me know how it taste .
Nice looks similar to the ones I am growing. Did they go from green to peach to red?
Mark....I may have missed the transition. I've only seen light green, dark green, then red. I haven't watched as closely as I normally do though. We had three straight days of rain last week.
Armageddon....taste was excellent. Similar to a habanero, but IMHO much better taste with less heat. Just enough to burn, but not enough to hurt. It lingers nicely.
Tim, I agree, they're a nice medium/hot pepper.
Actually, they're my go-to choice for everyday use. If I'm ever reduced to growing only one pepper, it'd be Billy Goat ;-)
Never heard of it. Interesting.
looks like i have to get my hands on a few of these seeds for next season i just tried some of my first smoked bhut i made up and it is very tasty used a little cherry /apple /hickory mix and its perfect cant wait to try some in a bowl of chili used it tonight on some Jambalaya had a few others sample it and they went back for 2nds
try the douglah, Tim. Get some milk ready first lol. John
"Similar to a habanero, but IMHO much better taste with less heat."
Tim, Billy Goat has a distinctive "cherries" smell, which is kinda neat. Did you pick that up during your tasting?
Rick....I didn't get the cherries smell, but in my defense, I broke my nose when I was about 20. My since of smell is horrible!
