Some Like 'em HOT

Uploaded by: ChrisAnthemum

Thursday September 12, 2013

Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I don't, I just grow them for ornament, but as I write, these peppers are winging their way to a WUG friend who does. If my local friend, whom I haven't heard from, decides he wants any, there will be more ripe in a week or so. Offer stands for anybody else who likes 'em hot! There is a story behind these peppers; refer to first comment below.

Thanks, MrEdword, glad you like the true story and the photo. Too hot for me too; mainly eye candy.

Very interesting account of the hot peppers. Thanks for sharing that with us. Probably way too hot for my taste.

LOL Delana! So will I! Is this maybe what they call "eye candy?"

These are the ones that are purple at some point? If so, they do make good [read fiery] eating when ripe - lots of heat and pleasant texture...

I love them! I'm going down to visit my son and his wife in Winston-Salem next month. Save some for me! ;-)

Great shot! It would make a fantastic stock photo!

Thanks, Peter! Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers... I haven't got the stomach for them either, just like the way they look, especially all the color stages they go through as they ripen. Refer to earlier pictures of mine to see what I mean. Thanks for adding your comment!

I used to raise these peppers when I was a teen, but lost them over the years. I found them again more recently, under the name “Firecracker.” Because the seeds have a short shelf life, I try to grow some every year so I can save fresh seed. A few years ago, I had a small crop, but laid several peppers out on my patio furniture to dry. When I went back to get them, alas, birds or mice had eaten every one. I tried planting all the older seeds I had, but not one came up. Then I looked online for them and found one place that carried them, but something was wrong with the ordering mechanism, and I was unable to complete my order. Despairing, I went back and searched the place where the peppers had been grown. I found ONE pepper that had fallen to the ground and not been eaten by anything, and from that one fruit about 25 little plants sprouted. From them are descended all the ones I have grown since, and I am more careful now to preserve seed from year to year.
