October 23rd… Another Harvest….

It would seem, that stripping all the plants in my Hydro greenhouse, is finally paying off…… as the remaining pods are ripening up nicely. There are probably around 100 pods in a state of semi-ripeness in this greenhouse. As soon as I think there are enough to make a harvest….I pick them.

Here Β is the latest harvest:

All these pods, have the typical fruity aroma you would expect from Cap.Chinense….and of course, they are all blisteringly hot ! However, the Nagabon, which is a cross between a Naga & Scotch Bonnet, is probably the one with the least heat, although it’s still crazy hot ,and in my opinion, has a great taste. The smaller pods, usually found at the bottom of the plant, are ideal to just chop in half and add heat & flavour to any dish…..They may be small, but they still carry a good punch of heat ! One thing that always amazes me….is the different shapes of mature pods, off the same plant ! I assume Β this would have something to do with genetics…or something, but it’s not a subject I’ve looked into…yet ! Any thoughts ? let me know πŸ™‚

As always, these pods will be de-seeded…and then dried in the dehydrator, before being stored in an airtight container.
