Default A thread for hot pepper-a-holics...

Hello Pepper Pals and Banana Buddies!




This is a place where Bob and I will be showing our hot pepper plants, and discussing anything to do with them. We are going to have an indoor hot pepper fest over the Fall and Winter.


Here are some pictures of some of the types I grow...

Bolivian Rainbow cross...







Bolivian Rainbow cross, Aurora, and Trifetti Variegata...








Trifetti Variegata indoors...







Same as above, but you can see the Long Red Cayenne peppers in the back...





Two shots of my seed grown Fire Cracker chili pepper plant from last season...






"Ornamental Christmas Pepper"...






Indoor Jalapenos...







Trifetti Variegata...







Purple Cayenne...







Ornamental peppers and Solanum Pseudocapsicum...







: )



Anyone else growing hot peppers and especially if you love them as much as us - feel free to join the thread and post your pics too...

Thanks--I love hot peppers, but grow mainly jalapenos. I did have a purple pepper I would love to get seeds for again. The plant had purple leaves and the peppers started out purple and turned to cream to yellow to orange to red. They were as hot as habaneros--it just took about 2 minutes for them to get there. I won several pepper eating contest at work.

I like red habanero sauces, but the only ones I have grown were orange and did not have the sweet flavor of the reds. So, for now, I buy my habanero sauce.

I have seeds for a 'Purple Pepper' variety, and it is just like you described, Sbl. Are you able to see my pics in this thead? If not, please contact the administrator and get this fixed, because it's no fun if you can't see the pictures.


Where the heck is Bob?....



This is nothing yet, in terms of the varieties I have. Here is a pic I just took now, of my little up and coming hot pepper seedlings...

A picture from a few years ago. This was a plant that came with the house and never died until I killed it because it was right outside our bedroom window and my wife has allergies. These little guys were so hot that my gardener took some home and later told me they made his mouth go completely numb, and he lost his hearing for a bit. I tried to ID them but never did figure out what they were. Great flavor but insanely hot!

Yes I do get the pictures--I can see a little purple leaf seedling in this post! I would love to get a few seeds of the purple pepper--they are beautiful plants!

I have to tell you the story of the contest I won with them--We had an annual pepper eating contest at work--it became pretty obvious that I could win over all of the people working there at the time, so I told them I would only compete every other yr.

Well, one yr when I was not competing we got this new pepper mouth in--he told me to come on and compete, but I told him "No--I promised to let someone else win and if he won I would see him next yr"

He called me a WIMP!

I said "We will see next yr."

He won that yr, so next yr I took a bowl of the purple peppers and I told him "Here's the peppers, you name the game!"

He said "How about we lay out piles of 3 peppers--you have 30 seconds to eat them and if you want to continue, you have 30 seconds to eat the next pile--if you go for the bread or water, you're out."

I said "That's fine with me."

We started, I popped all 3 in and chewed them up--I grabbed a small handful from the bowl and popped them in my mouth--"You don't mind if I eat a few extra do you--they are so sweet!"

He looked at me kinda funny, but stayed in the game for 2 minutes as I ate a few extra each turn. When he gave up he had red whelps where the tears had run down his face! When he went for the water, I grabbed a bottle of Tobasco and drank about half of it! He never called me a whimp again!

For my family, 1 orange habanero pepper is about right for a pint of salsa. Knowing that the red savina is about 4 times hotter, my wife mada a 1 quart batch with one of those. After 5 chips with that, everyone was sweating and drinking water! So it became a condiment -- just great in shrimp casadillas.

Yes. However, as a commercial crop this pepper is grown for its oil which is used as a pesticide in boat paint, underground pipe and cable sheathings, etc.

I have seeds for Naga as well as Bhut Jolokia. I also have orange and peach habanero seeds but would love some of the white kind.


I only use Frank's hot sauce once in awhile but mostly I just eat my fresh peppers so no need for too many sauces.
