This is a nice looking, peach/flesh-colored pepper from Brazil. The traditional color on these is red. They are very similar to Biquinho peppers. The flavor is tangy with some chinense/hab overtones. Heat level on the ones I grew is between cayenne and thai.
This is a three-way pepper cross from Justin White of White Hot Peppers. The strain I grew was f2, so it is still pretty unstable. The plant has dark foliage, pods typically ripen to orange.
The review pod is one I grew, the seeds were from White Hot Peppers.

This plant has great ornamental value. The leaves are dark, and pods go through multiple ripening color phases. They typically ripen to orange/red, but I had one plant that ripened to gold. The heat varied between the two plants I grew. The one I tasted in the video had heat a little lower than a regular ghost, the flavor was not bad.
The Aji Chombo is a larger, ribbed, habanero type pepper from the Panama.
The review pod is one I grew, the seeds were Hugo Vera.

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 a pepper cross from Khang Starr of MOA Scotch Bonnet x Brazilian Ghost.
The review pod is one I grew, the seeds were saved from the previous year’s grow. The seeds were originally sent to me by Khang Starr.

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.
The KAOS is a pepper cross from Jeanie Yanger. I don’t know the specifics, but I suspect some Bhut in the mix.
The review pod is one I grew, but the seeds were from a pod saved from Justin White.
The amount ate: 1/4 pod Heat: 7 Flavor: 7 Burn Profile: Mouth, ears, back of the throat Effects: none Cap Cramps: none
This was grown from seeds saved out of a pod from Justin White. The pods are red and smallish, with horizontal wrinkling, similar to what is seen on the ‘Jami’ bhut variants, and some Peach Bhuts. It had a Bhut-like smell. The flavor was sweet without an upfront burn. The burn had a gradual buildup and became pretty intense. The flavor reminded me of Bih Jolokia, but sweeter and with more heat.
