What? I had to wear gloves with these?!…Feb.20, 2012
Actually for the record, I seeded these “babes” out without gloves! I just made SURE to wash thoroughly after.
I am speaking of none other than some of the “hottest” vegetables in the world. Peppers! Judging from the real slow growth hot varieties like the Habaneros have exhibited, it would not surprise me these would do much the same. The few Bhut (Naga) Jolokia I managed to germinate last year, grew even slower than the fore-mentioned.
It was suggested that gardeners start these: “Naga Jolokia Chocolate“, from March to April. For “Naga Jolokia“, it was suggested to start these late January to February. Because, in my humble opinion, these 2 are essentially almost the same variety (cousins) except for color, I took a shot straight for the middle ground.
Therefore I started a few seed samples of “Naga Jolokia Chocolate“, “Naga Viper“, “Naga Jolokia” and “Trinidad Scorpion “Butch T“” on February 14…St Valentine’s Day. What burning love!
Before I digress too far, these seeds came into my possession from the kind generosity of Gary Howard of Ontario, who it appears has been bitten “royally” for years, by hot pepper varieties of all kinds. By the sounds of it, he carries an inventory of “hots” like no one I know. (…and I am a sucker for naturally generated enthusiasm…)
To get to know them better by their descriptions, kindly refer to our HOT PEPPER” listing in our website. Hopefully there are a few hardy folk willing enough to “adopt” them, as connoisseurs of “fine” dinning!
