    Default Chillies

    So the turn of the year is here and its time to start getting my chillies ready for propagating. I grew 6 different varieties last year listed here least spicy to mouth burning...
    Trinidad perfume, padron pepper, havanna gold, jalapeño, slow burn and basket of fire.
    The Trinidad perfume had no spice at all, lovely flavour. The padron was a beautiful pepper fried in oil, they say 1 in every 10 was spicy but it was more 3 or 4 out of 5. Havanna gold was a lovely chilli aswell, a little bit of spice but not too much. The rest was way too hot for me, not enjoyable.

    I've dried and saved loads of each chilli so if its ok with the mods,

    If you are in the UK, have over 100 forum posts, have a safe addy and would like a mixture of seeds let me know.

    Happy growing

    Just reminded me of a Carolina reaper Indian I got from iceland. Blew the head off me and wasn't going to attempt to eat the big long chilli that comes with it lol.
    I do like a bit of spice but that's just ridiculous

    Yeah I bet canna I've ordered some Trinidad moruga scorpion to get revenge on the brother inlaw for getting me with some reaper pork scratchings on my Sunday dinner! I could hardly breathe! Going to stuff some in a couple of his sausages!

    I got this glass one and the same size polycarb one for £40 off someone local. I'm hoping to pick a 10x12 up at some point this month to grow some loofahs and aubergine in. Maybe a few melons too if we get the decent weather too

    Just short of a week and we have our first one to the party. Jalapeño has broken the surface. My show leeks have also started to rise, they are Bulgarian giants

    I'll be pricking these out at the weekend. I'll be keeping two of each then thin down to one when they start to properly get going. It's good to see my own seeds germinate and grow from last year

    They have well cracked on to be fair. Ive taken the prop lid off tonight for 12 hours to see how they go on with that led.
    If people need the seeds, I can supply them. Got hundreds of them all apart from the far right which I bought

    I like them as close to 18hr light as possible. They arnt photoperiod sensitive like canna so they benefit from long warm sunny conditions
