Some pics I took the other day.
SBJ7 ( scotch bonnett jonah 7 cross )
Not yellow brain
7 pot primo
And Not Butch T
Beautiful peppers! I'm so jealous. It's going to be down to 37 F Sunday. I think this will be my last week before I call it quits.
Love the photos! Keep 'em coming.
Thanks Tima and maple_grove. Here are a few more.
Another 7 pod primo
nice pics.. I like how bumpy those primos are
Jamie, what are the differences between the 7 pod primo and 7 pod brain strains?
Looks like your plants are getting cranked up again, Jamie!
It's snowing here right now ...
Thanks chilemilio. They are a wicked looking pepper.
Tim, I wish I could tell you the difference. Very little if you ask me. The primos seem a little smaller and have a more pronounced tail but what do I know. I am just a guy who likes to grow hot stuff. :)
Bonnie, nice to hear from you. Snowing there and a hurricane making a cameo here. Craziness if you ask me.
Thanks Jamie for sharing the pics.
It snowed a bit here in the twin cities on Thursday too (at least it didn't stay) so seeing the pepper pics sure helps!!
Great looking brainy pods, Jaime!
I'm excited to grow the Douglah next season.
No snow here yet...this morning we're at 38F, but the peppers ought to survive no problem.
We did have one hell of a storm the other day, though. Even had a tornado touch down in the
small foothill community where I live.
Love the pics, I love pepper porn!
Well thank you Sandy, Josh and Daisey. How about a little more porn.
Nice Scotch Bonnet x jonah cross
My first ever true Douglah
And a cool Not Butch T cross. It is bright Orange!!
Romy - Just curious, what is a "true Douglah"?
I've heard that applied to a couple different chocolate/brown peppers, so I'd like to know which is the "true" Douglah.
Dang, Jamie! That's *another* nice pile of hotness!
@mbellot For me it is a 7 pod Douglah that matures brown. Which I think that is what douglah means in Trinidad. But correct me if I am wrong. I have 3 douglah plants (all the seeds came from different growers) and only one grew true to form. If you have seen as many douglah's as I have you know one when you see it. And a true douglah will burn your throat like no other. You really know when you slice it up, oils ooze out with lots of placenta, and are hit with a heavy chinese aroma.
Thanks Tim. It's all about proper temps and moisture.
Romy - That's what I thought.
I have some 7 Pot Douglah seeds (courtesy of OttawaPepper), one germinated plant (mid-May, foolish me) that I have picked three ripe pods from so far. They are as you describe, almost dripping when you cut them open with a very strong (pungent may be a better word) odor.
I had to ask because mine have been much smoother than the one in your picture, but otherwise have a very 7 Pot shape to them.
Slightly OT, I noticed this year that all my super hot peppers seemed to be much smoother skinned than last year. Even the one Bhut that survived over-wintering has been producing much less bumpy/pebbly textured pods. I wonder if it's the weather, which has been quite odd this season.
Congrats. 7 pot primo does look like brains! Lol.
Shoot Jamie, my eyes are burning!!
I think I'm going to have to try my hand at growin a Douglah.
Keep the pics coming.
Weather has a major factor on pods for sure. Too cold or too hot can cause some small mutated pods.
Northerngurl. There is not much differnce in the two. But they are NOT the same pepper:)Might have the same momma or daddy .
Sandy. You need some douglah seeds shoot me an email.
Few more pics
The pumpkin peppers( not butch T cross of some kind)
And a Douglah,yellow 7 x choc bhut, and the orange cross
Now those are some ugly pods! Well done!
Yes, the Douglah is something I'm really excited about...all this talk of oils has me salivating!
Thought I would share some recent porn. It's cold here in Florida so I can not imagine what you Northeners are up against. I nor my peppers would last long:(
Scotch Bonnet with stingers

Thanks for checking in.
You are a cruel, cruel man, romy.
(FWIW, I haven't been frozen out yet and am still taking pods, but they are smaller, rarer, and aren't ripening as quickly. Definitely on the downside.)
I am really enjoy to see all these nice pictures, thank you.
is it weird for my mouth to water everytime i see your pepper pictures?
I need to ask. How do you take such good pictures? I have a somewhat fancy camera, but its hard getting good detail of the chiles close up.
thanks for the afternoon coffee break -E
Up close you have to use the Macro setting or it won't focus.
And in all cases you need good light - either sunlight or a flash.
One great thing about digital cameras is that you don't have to pay for film and processing. You can take 20 test pictures trying different settings, then go with the ones that worked the best.
Then add the secret ingredient - a photo editor. I use Office Picture Manager to rotate, crop, and bump the brightness.
Oh, and the double secret ingredient: a great subject. romy's got me beat hands-down on that one.
romy, I'd like to hear about your photo practices too. You seem to be able to capture color pretty well, which isn't easy.
@DMF. I never try to rub it in.Come summer time when it is too hot to grow anything hear in Florida you guys can rub it in my face. Just kidding.
@Chlliwin Thank you kind sir. Always my pleasure.
@chilimelio Glad to make you coffee break more enjoybale.
@DMF Thank you for the kind words. I am by no means a photagrapher. I have a cannon 10.2 mega pixel camera. Like you said I use the macro setting for the close ups. But as you say it has to be perfect light. Too much or too little and it makes for a very blurry pic. I prefer sunset for my best pictures and I use the auto focus for distant pics . My harvest pics are best with a white background and lots of indoor lighting. And as you also said you can take many pics and pick the best ones.
Thank you again.
I love the way the 7 Pot Primo looks. Doesn't really look like a pepper at all, looks like a little golf ball sized blob of lava, and it's shape even makes it appear as if it's dripping.
looks like your having a pretty good season keep up the good work i sent you some mail will be waiting to hear from ya
Jamie - Any new pics to warm us up with. Been buried with snow up here in the North, so any new pepperporn would be good!!
Thanks guys for enjoying my peppers almost as much as I do. Here are a few pics for ya Sandy. Nothing special. Plants are really starting to green up again though so in a month or so I should have some nice porn.
Small harvests from the last month
And my newest member the 7 pot Jonah, thanks Tim ( peppernovice) and Bill (ottawapepper). Started this plant in September. Almost died due to dampening off but has been repotted and loves the winters here in Florida:)
Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Nice pics. Short season here in Seattle, WA. No greenhouse but do have some 7 pot brainstrains, Also yellow 7 pot n a ghost. Also a bunch of plants from seeds from a guy that had lots of 'odds n ends' of SOOOOOPERS. All fruits are a mystery to me.
Romy I want to grow up to be like you :) That's some awesome work I'm jealous!
Most hot peppers are HOT from day one. No need to get them ripe to have heat. Of course color and flavor are other considerations.
I am also in Seattle area. But this year I am not growing any chili. I have plans for the next season.
