    I’m all for the habanero. Great heat with great flavor.
    Anything more than a Scotch Bonnet or habanero and you can count me out

    Very nice peppers nonetheless

    Homegrown Heat? I was expecting something on firewood.

    I have 7 cords put up, but I guess that's not really relevant.

    Wow, what are you going to do with all of those?!

    My haul of datil peppers from earlier this summer was more than I could possibly use:

    IMG_20210606_195607.jpg

    I got three or four piles that size this summer out of one scraggly datil pepper plant. I ended up giving away at least half and I've still got a quart sized ziplock full of them in the freezer. They are so hot that one goes a long way so it's hard to use them all, and they are WAY less potent than reapers...

    In my youth I was all about eating the hottest things possible, the things that are legitimately painful coming out, the things you better wash your hands before going to the bathroom

    Now.... I’m more about the flavor, it may be hot but not overpoweringly so

    Stomach and colon I salute you!

    Go ahead and take a leak now without washing your hands, it'll probably be fine.

    I thought this was going to be about an amp or pedal build.

    Cool! I have been eating a hot sauce with habaneros, ghost peppers, and reapers. I dig good heat. Those will make some fantastic mole', salsa, spicy chicken or burgers. Yum!

    I knew this post would elicit a strong response. These peppers are very flavorful so small amounts are tasty, but they make my scalp sweat. The dehydrated ones will go in a grinder for judicious use as a seasoning on grits, soups, anything really. But not a heavy coating of those flakes, no!

    A guy about 30 minutes from me was the first to grow that.
    Most folks don't know about datil peppers, it's different, but in a good way. Have some chicken on the smoker now with some.

    Make some salsa and I'd have a couple chips with some milk at the ready.

    I'm not even going to pretend I could pop one of those and not be ruined for quite some time after.

    But they do look beautiful and taste delicious before they kill you.
