 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.

   Thanks again Ian for the tips. I have a bunch of peppers coming in. I actually have to keep them out of the sun. It sounds weird, but the sun is killing them.  Almost all of them cannot stand full sun. All opinions are ok, but I can tell you, I have moved them into the shade and I have a bunch of the hottest peppers in the world. I am going to use them to help a bunch of folks I know, by making a spray to keep the deer, coons and hopefully hogs away from their gardens. These are some seriously hot peppers, but hopefully the deer and all will stay away from the strong smell. I will keep yall updated.

Yeah, if the plants are growing in a shelter like a shade house they tend to burn off a  bit if suddenly taken out into full sun. I like to get mine planted out into full sun as soon as I can, before they thing about flowering. Even though they take a bit of a hit, the new hardier growth soon comes away. They should still grow and fruit in a more sheltered location, but the fruit may not be as hot. 

Chances are this isn't actually a problem  smiley_devil  :D  The difference between 1,000,000 scu and 1,200,000 is academic.  whiteflag_smiley

My wife with the 'green thumb' ::) plants the serrano, jalepeno, bell peppers, and others all right next to each other;  I thought it was a fluke the first year, but every year since then, it's proven true that a lot of them cross pollinate.  It's like the proverbial box of chocolate; you never know what a lot of them will taste like...lol

I sometimes wish they were separated. lol

   I have heard that they do cross pollinate also. I researched it a bit, and one article was saying that it only effects the seeds. I can say, the jalapenos that I have planted, which are right by my superhot peppers, are very very hot. I have not even attempted to eat a superhot raw, but I like jalapenos with a meal, and my nose and eyes runs big time while eating these jalapenos.

A lot of the varieties are Capsicum annuum, and hence are considered the same species, and will cross pollinate easily. The fruit will grow true as that's not affected by the DNA in the seeds. It's what the seeds will grow into that become a bit of a lucky dip. They will be chillies, that's about all you can be sure of. But this is basically how new varieties are created. 
 
So if you want seeds that grow consistent, keep the plants separated. If you are happy to buy new seeds each year, it doesn't matter. 

Other type is chilli are different species. Not sure if they hybridize easily or not. Habanero is Capsicum chinense and Tobasco is Capsicum frutescens for example.

  I was wondering about the difference in drying these superhot peppers, or using a blender to grind them up into a paste for making a pepper spray to keep the deer out of peas. Would you lose much potency if you dehydrated them? That way I could store a lot more in a small jar than blending them. Then when the time comes, I am thinking of rehydrating them by letting the powder steep in the water of a hand sprayer while it is in cheesecloth (a fine filtering screen), then using the spray to deter the critters and deer.

   I have close to a gallon of superhots pickled and more are on the way. They are full of peppers. I am going to dry some and see how much space I can save. I am thinking they will retain the oil, Therefore when rehydrated, they will produce the strong smell to keep the critters away. I made some hot sauce with some and it is very very hot, but very good at the same time.

Do not dehydrate them in your house! 2 people I know did it and they cried for weeks.
