My Super Hot Peppers
« on: February 07, 2015, 03:59:14 PM »
Here's a pic of my super hot peppers. The 2 big ones in front are my first ghost peppers and are going on 4 years old. The rest I planted back last July and have transplanted 2X. Total of 27 plants. I have 3 colors ghost peppers, 3 colors Morunga, a couple each of Carolina Reapers, Fatali, some Trinidad Scrpion, Bhut Jalokia Naga Vipers, 3 colors of Brain Strain, some Trinidad Butch T and some 7 Pot peppers.

 I started them in July in a 9 compartment plastic seed starter on top of a little heater (27 total seeds). Plans were to transplant only 1 of each, but they were so nice looking I figured I'd try all of them and let natural selection kill off the weak ones. I transplanted them in September. It's about time to transplant one more time before spring. I ended up with 25 new peppers plants.

 Here's what they look like, all grouped up:



 I'm still not sure what I am going to do with the peppers when/if they come in. They go in hotness on the Scoville Scale from about 500,000 to over 2,000,000! I figure one of each from each plant will last me my lifetime! LOLOL (OK, maybe a year).  I thought ya'll might appreciate a pic of them.  :)

Nice! I love REALLY hot peppers.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

A little update for ya'll.  I took my pepper plants out to get some sun a week or so ago as well as wash them down good and do some aphid control.  One of my Red Ghost Pepper plants had 5 peppers on it!  WOOHOO!  They were about the size of an acorn then.  Checked yesterday and they're almost the size of a Ping-Pong ball.  One fell off while I was checking the plants, so I took it and put it in a ziplock bag and into the freezer till the next time I fix a meal with rice and gravy.  Yummy!

It is still green, so shouldn't be too terribly hot.

I lit myself up last night!  WHOOOOEEEEE!!

A few days ago, I noticed some orange/red color on 3 of my red ghost peppers.  Last night, I took one of the more ripe ones and cut it up, including seeds.  My thought was that since it wasn't fully ripe, it would be pretty mellow compared to ripe ones.   I cooked up a little pork roast, some rice and gravy and pork and beans.  I spiked the roast with slivers of the pepper that fell off prior to cooking the roast.

The roast had a nice spicy flavor to it.  After spreading the finely chopped red colored pepper over the rice and gravy, I took a bite.  HOLY MOLY!!  It had all the heat I thought the fully mature ones had!  IT WAS HOT!  WOOHOOOOO  Success!  Through the hot taste, though, it had a flavor that is incredible.  Can't even describe it except to say it makes getting the heat along with it acceptable.

Things went great throughout supper.  I was careful to wash my hands 3X after handling the peppers, made sure to keep hands away from face (and other tender parts), made it through supper just fine.  Then disaster struck!  My forehead was sweating (imagine that!  LOL) so I reached up with my napkin to wipe it off.  Swiped all the way down my face.  BAD MOVE!  I don't know exactly when or how, but the napkin had a bit of pepper residue on it!  AGONY IN THE EYES!  I was laughing like crazy, considering how careful I had been, but my eyes were on fire!  I had Sweetie get me a wet, cold paper towel and let that sit on my eyes for a couple of minutes, then had her wet a couple of paper towels with milk and held them to my eyes for about 1/2 hour, then into the bathroom to wash face a bunch of times with soap and water.  The combo methods worked. Wowzers, talk about ecstasy and agony!  LOLOL

Anywho, I can say my ultra hot pepper raising is a roaring success so far.     ;D

Sounds like you have the base for a great home made pepper spray as well :)
