    Growing the Carolina Reaper

    I've just today taken the first couple of chilies from it. It's been in the same pot for most of its life. Why do you ask? Lately the new leaves have been coming out kind of crinkled. The people at the local nursery said it's due to mites, so I've just sprayed it for that. I have three new seedlings growing. If I extract seeds from the fruit will they grow reapers ( I read somewhere that seeds from hybrids won't grow true to parent plant)?

    Growing the Carolina Reaper

    I'm in Brisbane. Back in late January/early February I planted about half a dozen seeds. Long story short, only one made it. By the time the remaining small seedling had become established we were heading into autumn and winter, so growth was slow......but steady. Now, in early spring, I have a healthy flourishing plant ready for a warm season growth spurt. I also have about another half-dozen seeds I didn't use, so I'll be planting them shortly. I have a question though. Can someone tell me at what point it's likely to start fruiting?
