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?

RE: stinging bhuts

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

RE: stinging bhuts

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.


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

would even be interested in a couple of the cuttings when you decide to pull it indoors i will cover the shipping expense just let me know .


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

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.

RE: stinging bhuts

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


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

i got more pics, but u get the idea. After counting, about 70 percent tried to make tails. Rest look like reg. Bhuts, John

RE: stinging bhuts

To paraphrase Oliver Twist... Seed PLEASE!


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

once i get seeds collected and dried, i'll share with whoever is interested. Just keep it out of evil joes hands, lol. john


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

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.

RE: stinging bhuts

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?


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

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


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

how long do these seeds need to air dry? And what do u guys normally do quanity wise?


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

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.

RE: stinging bhuts

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.)


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

my bhuts look to have all grown true some have little pod variation but nothing out of the ordinary not nothing even near johns photos but again i have used only my bhut seeds for years now .


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

these seeds were bought from a good supplyer. All of them grew true except this on plant. Somehow it must have got crossed. Seed wise, Mark, same as a regular bhut. Got about 100 seeds now. Mail me ur info, John


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

Bill, i tried emailing u and keep getting an error. Get a hold of me , John


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

John would love to have a hand full of them seeds also would offer to cover any / all the shipping fees including you first offer of any next years true seed from your mother plant .


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

last post I forgot to mention the fresh cuts if you decide to overwinter or scrap the plant .... if you think its worth the time i will put forth the effort .....just a heads up .


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

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.


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

those look pretty wicked be interested in how they taste


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

Homefry - they taste like a regular bhut to me, John


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

i still have about 200 of these seeds left. Did everybody that wants them get them? John


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

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


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

I get about 10 seconds of flavor before the heat hits me. Lol


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

Does soul scarring pain count as a flavor?

Yes. Yes it does.

:)


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

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


 o
RE: stinging bhuts

Those look nice and are have an interesting shape.
I'll take some seeds. I have some started allready and these would compliment my winter collection. Send me your address and I'll send you a SASE.
