Hi Guys - Its been a while. But here are my favorits of 2012. 7 Pot Primo - best scorpion shape ever!

This one is not the regular Red Fatalii, but it also go under the name Red Fatalii. I got it from an american gentleman. I have seldom seen a capsicum chinense been so prolific as this one! Highly recomended!

A capsicum chinense that seemed to like the cold summer of 2012. Columbian Orange Lantern PI 257127. Quite small and very very tasy - nice heat aswell!

A pepper named by my friend Mats after his wife: Patricia. As you see its a capsicum baccatum. These peppers had really long tails and were the best tasting baccatum with this shape I have ever tasted. Nice heat aswell (hotter that the regular Jamacian Bell etc).

Friggitello is a chile pepper variety with The Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit (AGM). It's well worth it! Besides that it always gives abundant harvest so keeps the plant very healthy. I love to fry it in olive oil like I do with Padron. The variety always gives better yield than padron is my experience. The variety has no heat but is very good nonetheless!

2012 was not the best year for growing peppers in sweden. Many plants did only produce a very small harvest and som pods hade to be harvested while still green. Like these TS Morouga Yellow.

The capsicum pubescens did seem to like the weather and was earlier than ever before. I did grow Aji Largo and...

trinidad scorpion (the strain that smells like a bih/bhut jolokia)

hot lemon

habast (it's like a kind of light orange habanero)

sukania (a pubescens with white flowers)

a pubescens from indonesia

 

but a friend sent me from mexico some typical chili and so maybe i will grow some other varieties too....
