    I'll join you Scarlet, so you don't feel lonely is this nice new chilli thread

    my list for next year.

    habanero.
    lemon drop.
    cayenne.
    jalapeņo.
    early jalapeņo
    pretty in purple
    ring of fire
    vampire
    joe's long.
    jays peach ghost scorpion.
    Thai dragon
    holy mole.
    Hungarian black
    Hungarian hot wax
    scotch bonnet

    Vietnamese tear jerker.
    black naga.
    Kashmiri mirch (daily used in India)
    Krishna jolokia (ripens black to red)

    numex twilight
    chiang rai (big Thai )
    Delhi hot
    basket of fire
    cherry bomb
    ghost

    This is just seed list. There is a fairly high chance one or two plants will be brought as well.

    I'm also trying to over winter Simon (Dorset naga), tree chilli, chocolate habanero, filius blue and ghost.
    All my super hot varieties were sown in November and are currently sat under grow lights with a bit of heat from the propagator under them.
    The heated propagator will be getting stolen from them between Christmas and new year for my next lot of sowing. Which will be another 5 varieties.

    Wow all your grow lists are long!!!

    Mine is tiny

    Friggitello
    Jalapeņo
    Red cherry
    Hungarian Hot Wax

    The above started in November under grow lights with the HHW behind his buddies and have only started st show a few specks!

    Golden bell
    Antohi Romania

    Still in packets and yes I know they are peppers and not chilis!

    And finally
    Another jalapeņo pruned to early but doing nicely and little shoots seem to be coming through.

    Pictures will follow in due course!!

    You all have varieties I've never even heard of!

    My "attempt" list - I don't think I dare call it a grow list until about 6 months' hence when I see which have successfully germinated and grown. In most cases I'll only have one plant of each variety. Most will be grown in Chilligrows on south-facing windows and the rest will have to be risked outdoors. I think this is probably too ambitious for my level of expertise and, to be honest, commitment. At the moment it's a complete obsession with me but my interests do tend to wax and wane, so a few months down the line I might get bored and neglect them. I hope not.

    Overwintering:
    Gusto Purple
    Red hab / scots bonnet (not sure what it is; was sold as scots bonnet but shape looks wrong)
    Paper Lantern (might chuck this if remaining fruits are tasteless)
    Bushy red chilli (may be Superchili F1) - haven't yet had the heart to chuck this; the mildew (if such it was) doesn't seem to be affecting the newer leaves; will see how it does.

    Seeds:
    Carolina Reaper
    Chocolate Habanero
    Bhut Jolokia
    Scots Bonnet MoA yellow
    Purple Peach
    Bahamian Goat
    Aji Omnicolor
    Sugar Rush peach
    Aji Pineapple
    Aji Melocoton
    Peter pepper
    Etna
    Golden Cayenne
    Aleppo
    Filius Blue
    Numex Twilight
    Chenzo
