I live in northern New England and have grown these the last two years with great success. In 2018, I bought the seeds from Pepperjoes and enjoyed excellent germination, growth and harvest. Last year, I started the peppers from seeds harvested in 2018 and had the same result.
These plants get big (mine were over 5' tall), and they're bountiful with a great yield. It takes them a while to mature - easily 120+ days to harvest, but they're well worth the wait. The fruit is ridiculously hot, yet super flavorful.
A must for any "hot head."
This was my first time growing peppers from seeds. I ordered 10 seeds and got about 14. All but 1 sprouted and all are still doing very well. I can’t wait to have peppers on the plants to carry to work for the guys to try.
Grew some Apocalypse Scorpions from seed, and these plants get big if you let them and they produce heavily, I had 1kg of pods from a single plant.
The flavor of these chilli's is like nothing you have ever tasted before, but you have to use in extreme moderation, they have delicious fruity undertones that makes you just want to eat more, but then comes the heat and it is totally awesome, as hot as if not hotter than the reaper and it just goes on forever. The peppers themselves have a very distinctive look and vary from 3-5 cm in length, and about 2 cm across and are a lovely deep red when ripe. I sampled them thru the ripening phases orange to red and they start with a nice heat when in the orange phase and get to blisteringly hot when fully ripe. They also taste excellent when smoked and made into various sauces (from a full on chilli sauce to a chip dipping sauce(1 pepper give 2 litres a healthy kick).
