I guess this is a follow up to a Blog I posted last year about buying chilli plant seeds from eBay. Except, well, not quite as focused. I’ve bought chilli plants from Garden Centres quite a few times over the past couple of years. Admittedly, it’s a 50 / 50 split on me actually wanting the plant and me not wanting to see a plant suffer the way they tend to do at the end of the season.
Jeepers Reapers Revenge is a sauce I’ve had my eye on for a while if I’m honest. I first came across Daddy Cool’s Hot Sauces at the the Holker Hall Chilli Festival in 2016. I’d heard of the sauces by reputation and I was keen to try them out. I picked up a bottle of Fatalii Attraction while I was at the festival and I loved it. I’ve been wanting to try more from the range since.
Well. I’m not off to the best start with Blogging this year, two weeks into the New Year and not one post? Tch! I’m an Amateur.
Oh yeah, I am 😀
Anyhows – I’m proud to announce that on the 1st of January this year I got my sow on!
The Carolina Reaper has been something of an illusive beast for me. I’ve been after trying them for some time now, well, about two years now. When Tesco recently announced that they were going to be stocking them in store I started to pay attention quickly to the news.
I’ve seen a lot of horror stories this year about people buying Chilli seeds from eBay and the like, and, not getting quite what they hoped for. It seems to be coming out a lot more now that plants are flowering and getting their first pods.
Every Chilli Head has heard of the Carolina Reaper, it’s (currently) the worlds hottest Chilli, The official Guinness World Record heat level is 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units, that’s not something you take likely! So, when I saw that the Devon Chilli Man had made a hot sauce, I had to try some!
So. While it’s sad that some of my plants are reaching their natural end, there is some good news on the horizon…
… I get to plan for next year when, in theory at least, I should be better at this.
