really hot peppers

Post  walshevak on 7/16/2012, 3:24 am

My son sent me some pictures of his hot peppers.

Was labled a chocolate Habenero, but think it is a giant red bhut jalokia which I didn't think germinated.



regular habenero overwintered plant on 7/15


supposed to be a red scorpian. It almost died because the original pot didn't drain well and it also got hit with hot dry winds and sun for several days. Lost its original leaves. Pictures 5/24, 6/15 and 6/29



I'm not as adventurous. Just cayenne, but they are yellow instead of red. Saved seed from last year.


That is a purple bell hiding in the background.

Is anybody else growing unusual peppers?

Kay

Only unusual pepper for us this year is a Fish Pepper. Don't know how hot it will be, but the mottled leaves makes it decorative, whatever it tastes like.

I've been tempted to purchase a ghost pepper (bhut jalokia) plant several times when at the garden center. I just don't know what I would do with the peppers Razz They are way, way, way to hot for me. I have some that I smoked and they're really tasty in very, very small amounts. You've got to be really careful even handling the things they're so dang hot. But I think the plants and peppers look excellent as just plants. I have also been eyeing cyclops a chocolate habanero! It's a beautiful plant, but again just so darned hot. All those peppers look fantastic! I love those purple bells.
Not to change the subject, but Kay, does your son take care of your gardens while you're gone??

I have some Bhut Jolokias this year - and I don't know what to do with them either...
They are very slow growing, and show no signs of blooms or fruit yet. The Jalapeno, Mulato Islano, Puya, Serano, and Hungarian Wax peppers are all bearing abundantly, as well as the Bells. They seemed to love the searing heat we've had so far.

I grew a Serrano pepper about 4 years ago (think double or triple jalapeno). It took a long time, but it finally put out lots of peppers. I de-hydrated them and have just finally ran out. I have a couple plants this year, boy are they hot...

Always wear glasses and rubber gloves. For these, I have actually had the oil get _through_ a pair of latex gloves. I now wear two pair when seeding them.

I also recommend that you _always_ seed these types of super peppers. The seed contains concentrated capsacin, and it is more pain than flavor.

BTW, S_J, one of the pepper seeds you sent shocked the beets out of me when it finally sprouted...a month after planting. It's doing well, but no flowers yet. It was labeled "Sweet Chili." Can you tell me more about what I can expect from it? Thanks, Nonna

Sure, that is a very mild, sweet chile. I have put them freshly chopped into of all things - Chili recipes.

This is similar to what we buy at the store as "chili powder", but may be a bit milder. I have put them in dehydrator also, and then into the little grinder (like a coffee grinder) to make that kinda chili powder. Leave them on the plant until they are a deep red. Makes about a 6" long pepper.

Thanks a million! Hearing what you do with 'em, instantly my mouth wanted these peppers to get ready NOW! If necessary, I shall dig the plant up and put it in a large pot to live in the greenhouse or sunroom over winter. Will be fun to compare it with the ancho peppers that are just now setting fruit.

Re: really hot peppers

Post  walshevak on 7/16/2012, 7:13 pm

Rooster, no my son lives 4 1/2 hrs away from my garden. I put the whole thing on sprinklers with a timer for twice a day. A neighbor is making sure the strawberries stay alive. Took some of the peppers in my pots along with 3 tomatos in buckets to Northern Virginia and left them with the son of my best friend. He had asked for seeds from the habs, ghost, and red scorpian for next year so instead he got the plants this year. The rest is on its own. Told the neighbor and the guy who cuts my lawn to help themselves. Be interesting to see if some things survive this year like they did last year. At least this year I got some maters and cukes before I abandoned them.

BTW, we made hot pepper vinegar, hot pepper relish, Jalapeno Pepper jelly and Habenero Pepper jelly last year. Gave some as Christmas presents and have been eating on the rest.

We planned a series of jellies for this year using orange bells and orange habs, red bells and red scorpian or red cayenne, yellow bells and yellow cayenne, chocolate bells and chocolate habs, green bells and under ripe still green anything, and purple bells with something. The 7pot pepper is coming along and supposedly got its name because it would heat up 7 pots of chilli with one pod.

Post  moswell on 7/24/2012, 11:09 pm

I'm growing some Hungarian Black peppers. They're supposed to be similar to jalapenos in hotness, so not exotic in the scoville scale of things, but they're still a neat variety. The flowers are a gorgeous purple color, and as the peppers grow they turn this very deep black/purple. Supposedly, as they ripen more they turn red, but I've been picking some at the black stage and they've been delicious.

Those sound interesting and more my speed. I leave the super hot to my son. Maybe I'll try them next year.

Well, I just went out to take a couple pictures. They're not great pictures, this is about the hardest plant in my garden to photograph due to its size and the location of the bed. Anyway, I don't have any open flowers, but here's a picture of a just-closed flower and a picture of some of the peppers growing. I picked up the plant at the Rutgers Gardens plant sale this past May. Fortunately, I had my smart phone with me because while they'd tagged all the plants with names, they didn't really provide any description of them. So I think this is the website I went to that made me decide to try them: http://rareseeds.com/black-hungarian-pepper.html. I panicked when I first saw the purple veins coming on on the leaves, but then I remembered the description I read about them. Very Happy I can't wait to see them (and taste them) when they ripen to red.

In my garden are padron peppers. I first tasted them in Madrid as a tapas dish. They are simply fried and salted. YUM. So I brought seeds back with me. We also have jalapeno which are just starting to flower and bell peppers which have large peppers already. Last year, we were given really, really hot peppers--too hot even for my husband. I cut them into pieces and put them in vinegar.
