Those blacks (which seem caramel, don't they) look intriguing . . . and intimidating. I'm sure they're murderously hot.

I have just been harvesting seeds, but I presume they are murderous indeed. Both of those had to be harvested a little early, due to weather. But all three of the mamas do turn the color of their name. I found them challenging to grow: slow, late, liked to drop leaves. Yield was not awful. I can tell these are bred for heat first. Other traits obviously suffer. Judging by aroma, flavor is probably ok, but nothing as fruity as Fatali or Black Naga. But I got what I wanted, which was a supply of seeds of the world's hottest peppers. (thank you again to my generous seed donor)

Default Overwintering Another Pepper

I'm now at the three week mark after knee replacement surgery and walking with the walker is easier. Before surgery I dug and potted up a paprika pepper from the garden to overwinter indoors. It's the first time I've grown this one, 'Feher Ozon', and it seems to be on the dwarfish side so a good candidate for bringing inside. I want to see if it goes as nuts when planted back out next spring as the overwintered Gypsy pepper did this past spring!

Hey, Dawg!
Sorry to hear about your knee issue...hope you recover quickly!
This pic is of my Rooster Spur Peppers that came up in the container from this past season. I'm gonna transplant a couple into a pot and try to overwinter them inside. Wish me luck, and we're looking forward to seeing the UGA Dawgs in the SEC Championship Game on December 1st!

Take care,
