Paul calls them Orange Chocolate Bhuts. So they should have a unique color to them. Big peppers is the part I am intrigued with. It makes them a little easier to work with. I hate handling small, caustic peppers that are harder to deseed and you get more pepper juice on your hands and face by messing with them.
Im in Tennessee glen up in Appalachian mountains.i used go panama twice year at times just bout every year either be fishing big pier or up at jetties.i really enjoy growing peppers just bout growing anything i enjoy.always go play the pirate miniature golf as well.
MountianJ-I used to drive thru Tennessee when I was a young man driving a tractor and trailor back in the late 80's on Highway 40. I really like Tennessee. I retired very young and needed to find a place where I could live on my very small State of Florida pension check so I moved to Panama. I have been here for 11 years. I have always liked gardening so it is natural that I keep doing that here in Panama. The climate is tropical so I had to relearn almost everything I thought I knew about gardening. But, if you are a gardener, you can grow stuff. Anywhere. I have limited space to garden so everything is container grown. I have downsized. Everything is done by hand. I don't even have a car or truck. I use scooters. Where I live now reminds me of back home in the 60's. Simple living. My passion now is leaning towards chili peppers. I like to share photo's of my projects. I encourage you to grow some chili peppers and share photo's with us here on this forum. Welcome. Oh, bell peppers are not allowed. Just kidding.
i live in simple place as well their not much around unless ya go off the mountain that pretty well 30min trip or even to bigger city little over hour.i do like the simple and little things in life.things seem to be more peaceful. definalty will share pic of hot peppers i grow this year.
Hello everyone!!! Occasionally I walk about in the garden and snap foto's. These foto's were taken today-4-30-2020. These foto's are just a sample of whats actually going on in the chili pepper patch. I am fully loaded with chili's now although I am just now waiting for super-hot chili's to fully ripen. The super-hot peppers are the chili's I value the most. They add the right flavor to my chili pepper recipes. Although I do not eat them by themselves I do mix them with other chili peppers. I use whatever chili peppers are ripe that day to mix with the super-hot peppers. Later, I will make chili paste or pureed chili pepper with just super hot peppers. I am not ready for that yet. Just a few super-hots really change the character and flavor of any recipe. Tobasco and Thai hots by themselve really don't do it for me on their own any longer. Not since I started growing these beautiful super hot chili peppers. Try it. They aren't really much harder to grow than any other chili pepper once you get the hang of it. 4-30-2020 foto's. Bhut Orange Copenhagen beginning to ripen
More BOC ripening. Fully loaded. The Bhut Jalokia can be one of the most prolific pepper plants you can grow. I have had very good luck with this plant. Look at all the berries!!
Bhut Orange Copenhagen-beautiful. When you see peppers this pretty-be careful. They are probably spicey.
Carolina Reaper-no tail-Bumpy skin usually is a clue that the pepper might be spicey.
Carolina Reaper-not all foto's are of good quality. Fruits of this plant are excellent looking with the classic bumpy skin
Orange Chocolate Bhuts-classic look
Orange Choco Bhuts-not ripened
Different style Orange Chocolate Bhut
Same pepper in better lighting-Super hots will vary in phenotype as most are not completely stabilized. This Orange Chocolate Bhut is very large
Purple Thunder-one pepper is ripening. It will be red.
Purple thunder-bubble gum color
Unripened Purple Thunder
Unripened Purple Thunder-in the chili pepper world, lots of amateur growers experiment with crosses. Purple Thunder is one of those projects. This is an f-4 speciman. It takes 8 to 10 generations to get to a point of variety stabilization. Growers usually can't wait that long before seed distribution so you get variation's. I think the variations are interesting. The flavor is this pepper is pretty amazing too.
Bhut Orange Copenhagen-From my reading, the Bhut Orange Copenhagen-or BOC, was developed in Amsterdam by an amateur grower. Its not a cross. Its just a variation that a grower found in his green house. He saved seed from his plant. And, the BOC was born. Discovered in 2009 so this Bhut variation is probably not even fully stabilized either. When you google this variety you see many different versions of it. I think it is a great plant. A keeper.
Hon Gochu-Korean pepper-When you visit your local Chinese food market and you find those big bags of dried pepper flakes. This is the pepper that is used to make those flakes. It is also in the kimchee that you buy in the market as well. Its a mild pepper. Grown all over China and Korea.
Dragons breath-very small plant-it is just now trying to make a comeback as this speciman got set back due to sun burn plus wind burn.
Dragons Breath. All blooms have fallen off. No fruits but this plant has come a long way. I thought it was going to die.
This plant has come a long way also. This is Bhut Jalokia crossed with Paper Lantern/Lemon drop. Plant is now blooming and has set fruits but they are very small. Plant looks kind of like a paper lantern
Bhut Jalokia-purple gene-plant is small and feminine in appearance-delicate-likes shade
purple gene again-Bhut Jalokia-purple blossoms-orange color pods just started ripening. Small pods. Not real productive but really attractive plant. Likes shade.
Orange Bhut Jalokia chocolate- I haven't seen any chocolate but I have picked hundreds of pods off this plant. Plant is huge. probably them most productive chili pepper I have ever seen or grown.
This is a red Bhut Jalokia- purple gene-don't know why these plants have this gene-guessing a little crossing? This commonly can happen in the garden. Blossoms are purple. Branching purple. Leaves have purple tinting. Beautiful plant. Pods fairly small. This plant will eventually be covered over in pods. Many blooms. I love this plant.
