I'll join you Scarlet, so you don't feel lonely is this nice new chilli thread
my list for next year.
pretty in purple
ring of fire
jays peach ghost scorpion.
Hungarian hot wax
scotch bonnet yellow
Vietnamese tear jerker.
Kashmiri mirch (daily used in India)
Krishna jolokia (ripens black to red)
chiang rai (big Thai )
basket of fire
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.

I think mine will be something like this:
Overwintered Trepadeira Werner & a mystery chilli (Rob Smith's seeds)
Plus Facing Heaven if I can ever find a proper supply.

Wow all your grow lists are long!!!
Mine is tiny
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!
Still in packets and yes I know they are peppers and not chilis!
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.
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.
Scots Bonnet MoA yellow
Sugar Rush peach

Still haven't decided on mine yet.. You lot are making me think about sowing a couple before January...I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives....
