So, my peppers are coming along quite nicely, but I have a couple questions for the Trinidad Scorpion and Ghost pepper growers here. Looks like I've already got quite a few peppers started. Isn't that kind of unusual for the first year?
When I first started these peppers I didn't realize they're actually perennials, not annuals, then I read up on them. I've read they really start producing big time in year 2 and beyond.
My other question is about drying them. I remember when I had an extensive habanero crop I made the mistake of drying them in the dehydrator in the kitchen. Woke up the next morning and couldn't even go downstairs because of the fumes! So...what's the best way to dry Trinidad Scorpions and Ghost peppers (which are orders of magnitude hotter than Habaneros)? Maybe I could do them out in the garage (with the cars outside of course), might clear out any critters in there in the process as an added bonus!
