stinging bhuts

scorpion_john(6)September 21, 2012

most of the peppers on one of my bhuts have the tail. Pod variation or cross? Thought you guys might find it interesting, tastes like a regular bhut, John

Interesting. The first thought I had was a cross with a Scorpion. Save the seeds. I'd be interested in trading for some. Send me an email.

Certainly looks like a Scorpion cross. Was that the only pod that looked like that?

no, most of the pods on that plant are like that. Thats the one with the most defined tail. The other ones are stubby and not as pretty but they are trying. I'll have to see what i get from this plant. So this is the first ripe pod off it. It was one of my smaller seedlings i almost didn't even plant cause it was so far behind the others. Will be happy to send u guys seed when some more start ripening. I'm gonna overwinter it, cause its hard to tell how the seeds will grow out, John

That is definitely an awesome hybrid. By all means, overwinter that bad boy, and see if you can make cuttings when you prune it back.

Very nice pepper cool cross. Can you post a pic of the others that have a stubby tail when ripe? Would be cool to see what they look like or even a shot of the plant with pods on it.

I think it is obscene. Perhaps the Devil's own pepper?

Very nice, and an interesting pepper, if you do have any seeds left to share I would like to have some also. I do have seeds I could trade if you like any of the varieties that I have.

I know with gourds when you cross polinate you do not see the hybrid until the next generation. If two squash x-polinate the fruit will look like the mother plant and you will not see the hybrid until you plant the seeds from the mother plant. is it not the same with peppers?

It is, this is clearly a fruit from a hybrid seed from last year.

4 to 5 days should be good to air dry, I usually dry for a week or so. Usually 10 seeds per pack is the norm, but Bhuts don't have many seeds and not sure how many are in this type of pepper. I would be happy with just 5 seeds.

Those are awesome! Looks like a regular Bhut except for the tail. Save me five seeds if you can spare them. Thanks.

Rick (P.S. What's going on with Bhut seeds this year? Mine were far from normal.)

I have a Bhut plant with maybe a dozen pods that show a stinger - kinda, sorta........
My 2010 OP seeds came from a source in PA, this one was from seed I saved in 2011,
plant was a late start, set out around May 1 and only gets 4-5 hours of full sun.
All pods are immature and probably will not have time to ripen before frost hits,
but weather is crazy here, forecast is high 90's all week!
Anyway here's a pic.

Bhuts have a flavor? Does soul scarring pain count as a flavor?

Bhuts most definitely have a flavor. Currently my favorite pepper flavor. Pain is good too, but everything in moderation.
