I love chili's as well. I have found they do not grow quite as well in Northern climatyes as they did in Colorado. They really like the heat to flower, and in Maine it comes so late. Despite that I have some poblano's and ancho varieties going. I think the medium eat pepper with earth tastes are the most flavorful and add the most depth to meals.

I do like the sweet inducing butt burning variety as well, just don't grow them...

BB. Have you tried black plastic to get a few more degrees out of the soil? I've done that with my sweet potatoes about three weeks before the plants arived as a result of George's Sweet Potato farms suggestion for northern climates.

The Red Savina Habanero was the hottest chili in the record books a few years ago, but I do know that a few of the ones I'm growing now are hotter. Actually the Bhut Jalokia is the world record holder on the Scoville unit chart. The record Red Savina was measured at approximately 570,000 Scoville units. The Bhut Jaloka is measured at a little more that 1,000,100 Scoville units. The Naga Jalokia is pretty much the same and if grown in the right conditions the Trinidad Scorpion is pretty close. I loooove the really hot ones and oddly some of the extreme hot ones have a fruitier flavor. You don't taste it long, but it's a really pleasant flavor before it knocks you in the dirt!...lol!! Also, for frame of reference an orange hab is at about 250,000 scovilles and a jalapeno is set at 5,000 to 7,000 scovilles. I loooove the ultra hots, but I do like some that are hab heat level or below as well. Cayennes are one of my favorites. I'm actually excited about trying the chocolate hab as well. I guess they really hot for a hab and have good flavor.

The guy that gave me my seeds this year actually sent me one of his smoked chilipowders. You can actually taste the smoke flavor in with the heat. VERY good combo. I may be trying that myself in the future........................ .Also, what did you smoke in the 70's????......LOL!!! Just kidding.

Exactly Chris, put em in the smoker with mesquite or hickory,(type of pepper determines flavor of woodsmoke), smoke for about a 1/2 hour at medium heat and dense smoke, cool then put in the dehydrator until thouroughly dried, then grind into powder,mike

I should have figured you'd have 100 delicious ways to prepare chili peppers, mike. hehe. I just moved into a new apartment June 1. My old apartment had really bad light, but my new place has a fire escape in the back that faces east and a roof that gets full sun all day. I got the landlord's ok to put in some containers, so June 2 was planting day.

ATM I've got 8 tomatoes of various sizes and shapes, one per pot, in containers ranging from 5-14 gal. I had a really nice selection of heirloom seedlings from local farmers markets. The peppers were almost an afterthought, but I have 1 container of bells and one with a mild hot pepper. I'm looking to put in another pepper with more heat in the next couple days. I'll post pics once my adventure in urban gardening is looking a bit more robust.

It may take me an hours drive to get to the nearest mushroom spot, but the roof is only one flight up.

Thanks Happy. May give that a try. Been having pretty good luck getting extra zones using similar tricks.
