Peppers..

...I know our fid's have less 'bud's than us human's do. And this post will prolly be answered best by Ms. Gail and Al...who's fid's seem to really enjoy peppers.

I know all about habenao's and RB's green chilli's..and I just heard about ghost peppers,(thanks Al) but has anyone heard of,or tried,Carolina Reapers?
according to my brother they make any other type like eating cardboard

Re: Peppers..

I've heard of them and I think you must use hazmat gear to chop them for Amy and BB.

Re: Peppers..

Kirby (Rival) says it's a new cultivar which is dubbed the hottest in the World, yes, even hotter than the Ghost. I bet the Rb would love it but it will not set foot in THIS house!!!!!! I don't need a flying flame-thrower in my face!

Re: Peppers..

Try putting your contacts in after petting a bird that ate one of these hot peppers. Holy cow, that hurts!

Re: Peppers..

Cairo loves tearing up and eating a string of chilli padi, but when I cut them up for him, my fingers turn red and start burning! Nothing helps to alleviate it - I've tried milk, ice, oil, soap, etc. Only the next morning are my fingers back to normal. I completely avoid kisses from him after a meal of that.

And to think, chilli padi is not even as hot as a ghost pepper or Carolina Reaper! I'd avoid them just to save my poor hands

Re: Peppers..

I have a bottle of Carolina Reapers I'm packing for my brother. I sent him seeds a few months ago, but his growing season for peppers was ending.
***Be warned***
Do NOT let your bird kiss you anywhere but especially the lips or groom your eyelashes after eating them! The only antedote for days is milk or soft dairy. Showers/baths will NOT help. To avoid skin burns on hands, latex gloves are recommended.

Re: Peppers..

Seriously, stick to dried long red chilis or dried red thin cayans for your bird. These have the same feather effect and assumedly that's what you're after.

Re: Peppers..

Buddy, I have not gone hotter that the Ghosties with Salty. Those and the Habeneros.
Salty would love them most likely, but I'd be cautious handling him for a day or so.

Re: Peppers..

Tell me, please, why you want this? I have long wondered, ignorantly possibly, what the value of excessive heat or spice might be. Can someone end my confusion by telling me, please?
