APED: "peppers"

June 12th, 2009 (05:58 pm)

I like eating jalapenos,
anchos and poblanos, too.
Big chipotles, rocatillos,
serranos and manzanos do,
kumatakas, habaneros --
ever hotter, that's the fun!
Mmm, a naga jolokia --
oops. I just burnt out my tongue.

I keep telling myself that I've gotta get some Jolokia seeds. I've been raising my own cultivar of red Habaneros for about 7-8 years now. I don't think that the original red pepper on a bush of orange ones was actually a spontaneous Savina mutation. More likely, it had an affair with the Scotch Bonnet bush adjacent. In any case, they're definitely megaton-yield, and have been breeding true since then.
