    How are the plants doing? SP, my Matthew Arthur scotch bonnet that I kept has the biggest flowers I have ever seen on a Chinense so I wondered if yours was the same? I wonder if it may have been crossed with an Annuum? I haven't got any pods yet. My white Bubblegum has set a few pods now but they don't have the large calyx I was expecting for a bubblegum so I'm worried they aren't "right" either.

    Of the plants you sent me (I really ought to get some photos) the Strawberry Drop and Basket of Fire are outside in their final pots and have both set a few (tiny) pods already. Pumpkin is also out in final pot but not flowering yet - it had a few flowers very early, but I pinched them out because I thought it was too tiny at that stage. The others are still in the house. Dorset Naga has set one pod so far. It's in an 8" square pot but once it fills that, it will be moving to a 20l pot in the neighbour's greenhouse. Giant White Hab and Cheiro Roxa are both flowering but no pods yet. Chupetinho hasn't got going yet but I don't think it will be long.

    I just need the weather to warm up! When I planted out, the forecast was for no night temps below 9*C in the next couple of weeks but as soon as I got them out there, the forecast changed and temps have been down to 6 or 7. Poor plants. Some are looking a bit damaged - new leaves gone pale and even mature leaves gone floppy. It's June! Think this will set them back a bit.

    Here's Mathew Arthur scotch bonnet. I must be honest I re potted him this morning into this smaller pot he really wasn't looking happy in the big one.
    I've not managed to grow a true scotch bonnet for a couple of years, so I look forward to your verdict on this. It's certainly more scotch bonnet like than I've managed recently

    My Dorset Naga's and pumpkin have just started flowering.
    Giant white hab has set its first pods and cheiro roxa & chupentinho still just flower buds.

    They've all got new growth on them and no evidence of little green monsters. They're getting there

    The other one is doing brilliantly.

    Your white bubblegum looks perfect, it has that large calyx. Mine just doesn’t have that, it just looks like a hab. The MA bonnet looks good too. How annoying!
