 I've grown a few Carolina Reapers and ghost peppers. If starting them from seeds, start them indoors as early as possible, like now might even be too late already depending on your zone. Here I planted them in January in the house and that worked good. I don't know if it was just the batch of seeds but they took a very long time to germinate, however they almost all came up. I've kept a few of the plants for several years. I just kept them in good potting soil with the time release fertilizers and they did well. Water them regularly but don't over water and make sure they are well drained so the roots don't rot. And make sure if there's any chance of frost, cover them up or bring them indoors as they don't hold up to cold at all.

I'm don't have too much of a green thumb, but I honestly didn't get very many peppers from my plants until the second year, the plants were alot more mature and made alot more peppers the second and third years after planting them.

 The ghost peppers I grew were chocolate ghost peppers, they had distinct but good flavor. Tasted great for about 1 second until the heat kicked in lol.
 I'm not sure why, but there were a few peppers that didn't have much heat to them, and we're actually pretty safe to eat by them selves (about like a jalapeno). The hot ones I dried out and made into flakes and would sprinkle a small amount on various foods. I like the flavor of them, but they are about too hot for me.

   I germinated them back last month and some are 1" tall. The jalapenos I did at the same time. They say the hotter the pepper, the longer it takes to germinate. I noticed that it is very true. The jalapenos are 2-1/2 times as big as the super hots, and germinated at least a week earlier. Luckily I started just in time. Hopefully not too late anyway, but I will know next year to start at least a month earlier.

  Those sure look nice. My eyes are watering now :). I hope I can make some this year. At least I will have seeds from now on, even if see that they are too hot.

Even if you find they are hotter than you like, just use them sparingly and they are OK.  Make a sauce or relish with a heap of tomatoes, some onion and capsicum etc, and just add a couple of chillies to spice it up. You can make a LOT of "warm" sauce from a couple of plants if you only use 2 or 3 chillies in pot of sauce. 

I've experimented with other fruit and veges too. Kiwifruit and Feijoa sauces worked well with a dash of chilli in the mix. Those get really cheap (or free) here when they are in season. So it's more a matter of adapting to what you have. If you can make chutney from it, you can make chilli chutney.  ;D

  Ohhh man, I love kiwi. I am babying these things. the hottest ones are very slow to grow. They are about an inch tall, and I wheel them into the sun for 15-30 minites at a whack. I don't want to oversun them. There is severe weather predicted for tonight so I am glad I can get them in out of the bad weather. I like your idea of the hot shots :D I bet they put the young ones in their place. I am really liking the spicy food. I am working my way up. I really appreciate the replies. Thanks a bunch.

How the plants look today. 

Might do a harvest, and throw them in the freezer until the kiwifruit are in season

Those look nice. I am waiting on mine to start taking off pretty quick. They seem to be doing ok, I guess I am trying to rush them. I figure, out of all the seeds I planted, I should have a couple of each type that will make it to maturity.

  Peppers are finally coming in. I have some beautiful Carolina Reapers, Ghost peppers, Apocalypse Scorpion, Butch T Scorpion, Cayenne and jalapeno. I am glad I planted as many as I did, as this was a learning curve, and I started out with probably 25 plants (started from seed ) and ended up with 10 fine specimens. They are doing great. Thanks Ian for the tips.
