First major pick and ottowa's miracle pepper

Had my first "real" pepper harvest last night. A boat load of 7 Pot red and a handful of Bhut.

Sorry for the awful cellphone pic, I was in a hurry.

ottoawa's miracl pepper

ottawapepper (Bill) sent me some 7 Pot Douglah seeds that sprouted quite nicely back in January. I had a major catastrophe in May and lost nearly all my plants, including the two Douglahs.

I decided to give a shot at starting fresh, so in mid-May I planted a lone Douglah seed.

This pepper (3.5 months later) is the result.

Bill, those are some awesome seeds!

LOL - Apparently you are allowed one picture per thread, not one per message...

Oh well, I'd rather show off the miracle pepper - you guys have all seen Bhuts and 7 Pots before. :)

To work around posting after you posted is put in the subject line another character like a ! or a . or ..... Then you can post the pcs back to back

Nice looking pepper, how the flavor? I may want to add to my 2014 season since 2013 is limited.

RE: First major pick - the pic !

Mark,

Haven't picked the Douglah yet, giving it another day or two on the plant (it's still slightly green at the tip).

Still amazed I have a ripe pod less than 120 days from when I sowed the seed.

Here is the pic from the OP...

LOL - This is just too complicated.

Nice harvest and a beautiful looking Douglah.

Given my screw up with the Jonah seed, I'm glad the Douglah is growing true and you're happy with the seed.

Thanks for the update,

Bill

ps. A word of warning... the Douglah falls into Edymnion's description of some peppers: "Some of these peppers are like Playdough. Fun to play with, not to eat!"

Haven't met one yet. :)

The 7 Pot reds are quite good, the Bhuts are old news (but also good).

I'm looking forward to trying the Douglah.

No video though. :P
