Review

This pepper was very hot, more than expected. They typically are supposed to have a distinct fruitiness, but the one I grew was more floral, with much higher than habanero level heat. I think it would be great for hot sauces or powders.

This is an awesome pepper. It has the looks, flavor, and sweetness of MOA Scotch Bonnet, but with much more heat. The heat effects/signature of similar to some super hots, but not as intense as superhot peppers. It’s much hotter than scotch bonnets/habaneros.

Mars Hydro sent me their SP150 grow light for review. This pulls 129 watts and fits great in a 2 x 2 grow tent. I have mine set up over some germinating Chocolate Rocoto seeds. I’ll post videos of the progress.
