I had three Reaper plants. Two in the garden and one in a 30 gal pot. The one in the pot developed a wooden stem and during a windy day the stem broke. I was able to salvage 50 fruit, most of which were full sized. They are still green. Will they turn red? I am not smart enough to post a pic!

Some might and some wont it wont effect the heat.
Just because you can't post a picture doesn't mean you're not smart.
Not knowing how and smart have nothing to do with each other.

I am growing peppers from a hot pepper mix seed packet. and I am new to hot peppers in general .. So can you guys help me with this one? It seems like Serrano. It is hotter than jalapeno. Is it Serrano or something else?

Anybody else growing "seasoning" peppers? All the aroma and flavor, but heat that let's you focus on flavor.

This year trini seasoning, tobago seasoning, aji dulce 1 and 2, rocatillo, sort-of-hot Fresno, and of the local version of Scotch Bonnet. Last year I grew MIL's Ccotch Bonnet for bonus points.
Yes, I have grown the Trinidadian Flavour Pepper. Very nice for seasoning.

Yes, it does look very muck like a Serrano.

Youtube is full of videos of people eating the devil's fruit. I have to admit, I thought I could handle it. This year the hottest I am growing is Rocoto and Aji Amarillo! That's plenty for me.

Speaking of not hot, my Habanada peppers are finally ripening, and I ate several in a row whole today with no ill effects. Delicious habanero flavor, less spicy than an Ancho. I wish I was growing some orange habs to add a bit of heat for a sauce.

How exactly is the habanero flavour, or these super hots, that people keep praising?

I grew Bishop's Hat, which is a baccatum, and the taste was a combination between some kind of shampoo and crushed nettle (seriously, the crushed nettle undertone was very obvious).

I'm back to normal hot peppers, which taste great (padron, and so called bulgarian types, and so called charliston types (turkish)).

Baccatums can indeed have a soapy taste. The worst-tasting pepper I ever grew was Aji Brazilian Starfish. Extremely soapy taste and very thin walls, but it did have an interesting tropical fruit layer of flavor. Aji Lemon Drop is also soapy, but not in a bad way, it compliments foods. Sort of like cilantro.

My all time favorite is a baccatum, Aji Amarillo. Not soapy at all.

While the Habanada is good, and better the longer it stays on the plant once ripe, the flavor does not quite match the intense tropical sweetness of a regular Orange Habanero (which you have a few seconds to relish before your mouth catches fire). I would still say it's a big step up from heatless "spice" peppers like Trinidad Perfume, Zavory Habanero and Aji Dulce 1 and 2. Those are all great for cooking, powders and sauces, but they don't taste great as a snack off the plant.

You might be interested in Rocoto/Manzano peppers (pubescens) for truly incomparable flavor.

Nice peppers!! I think I need to find seeds for that variety.

I picked a few for the freezer, these are picked green because the color goes better when making pepper jelly.

Habs, jalapeno and cowhorn.
