    Okay, I grew bhuts last year (still have a bunch of dried ones left), but don't think I'll grow the Trinidads. Decided that painful food isn't necessarily good food!

      I bought Bhut seeds and this will be my first attempt to growing them, so I am wondering if you have any suggestions. My garden usually stops at habenaros but I want to try Bhuts.

        I bought 4" potted plants, so not sure about raising from seeds. Give 'em plenty of room--mine grew to nearly 5' high and produced like mad (I'm in So. Cal). I strung 'em into ristras to dry, and they work find either reconstituted or flaked.
