Planted the first seeds for 2020. It is way too cold outside, but i plant in the office, got a big window facing south-west so tons of sun and temperature steady around 25 Celsium. It is practically a green house.

Experimental seeding this year, two new varieties that a friend of a friend provided :
  • Aji Charapita, famous as the most expensive hot peppers in the world. Idk about that, seeds are all over the net so i doubt it. Those peppers are very cool, little orange balls with a sudden and extreme burst of heat that also quickly goes away.
  • Scotch bonnet , those are like scorpions but bigger and about half hot, so it is a great everyday choice.

The Carolina reaper plants gave a lot of peppers. But i am probably growing them just because it is the hottest in the world. This shit is not edible,  it is purely toxic. We are 3 experienced, almost addicted, chili eaters and yet we haven't been able to consume, together, even one whole normal sized pepper at a meal. The burn is really out of this world. Oh well ill keep farming it, it is so extreme as a.... creature that it is enough rewarding do it. It is easy now too, the tree is multi-year. After the big colds , around early March, i chop it down to a few inches above the soil, then after a little while it sprouts new branches and re-grows, using the already established root system. So new 'babies' are much stronger. It will be the 4th year i do this IIRC. Awesome!

loool.

i don't think i've had them. i might have a carolina reaper plant now that my friend gave me to "foster", but not sure. i think i have reapers, ghost & scotch from him, as well as some more edible peppers.

Nice pics!
To prune is a whole science. So many variables, depending on goals, plants, methods, era etc. Needs a lot of reading and experience. Ive only done basic stuff and not even sure i did them right.
But to chop down for re-spawn is the easiest thing in the world. You start from the top and chop chop chop all branches, until you only have the main trunk left, then chop this too leaving only a few inches of trunk above the soil. The only key point here is to not leave this final chop messy. you need one fast clean cut. My pepper plants trunks are not that fat, top 2 inches diameter, so with a good sharp pruning scissor and a fast explosive movement ( wrist RFD anyone? ) it is rather easy.
Ill try to keep in mind and share pics of before/after/respawn this year.
