26 July 2007 Capsicum annuum 'Explosive Ember' Hot Pepper

http://quuuf.notlong.com/ 26 July 2007 Capsicum annuum 'Explosive Ember' Hot Pepper

This small edible ornamental pepper was grown from seed and was put in the garden on 1 June 2007 in Zone 5. There are five plants, and they all thrived and are laden with fruiting bodies. I tasted one and indeed it is very "hot".

Where this pepper rates on the Scoville Scale is not known. I suspect it is around 1500 S.U. Pure Capsaicin (the compound that causes the "heat") measures 16,000,000 Scoville units, and the hottest pepper recorded was 577,000 Scoville Units.

I like the way you've planted those peppers right next to the peas. Was there a special reason for that, or did it just work out that way? What do you do with them? Dehydrate and use for cooking?

We usually eat the peppers raw. The planting method is sort of "off the cuff". I decide as I am planting. The main purpose is to have a canopy of leaf to maintain soil moisture in the garden as a whole, and sufficient sun for maximum growth for each plant, and sometimes ease of picking.
