For the past couple years I've been buying habanero peppers, adding a little water, blending them into a paste & dehydrating them. It turns into a hard Habanero Roll-up. lol. I then take the dried disc & put it into the blender again, turn it into a fine powder & throw it into a spice shaker. Its my fav spice by far. I love it because its so hot that you dont have to use so much of it that you overpower the taste of the food with the taste of the pepper, you just get a bunch of *hot* without much flavor...I love that. I'm always telling people I'm going to hook them up with my dried habanero but it's never really made me proud to give it to them. I mean I'm just buying it from the store & drying it...whats to be proud of? So I go online to find some seeds...and I came across red savina peppers! Even hotter! I quickly ordered them a few minutes ago. I'm now looking for tips on growing them. I live in Oklahoma City, OK. The summer is comming up so it's a good time to get some peppers planted. Do you guys have any advice you can give me? How big and what style of growing *thing* should I build? I'm going to put it in the back yard & it needs to be out of the dogs reach...I dont want them peeing on my peppers. XD
Anyway, this is my first plant since childhood so Im very new. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi DeputyMoniker and a BIG welcome to the GardenStew forums. You sure have come to the right place Very Happy

Ok I am no expert on growing peppers but I have located a few links that may be of use to you:
http://www.cosmicchile.com/xdpy/kb/growing-chile-peppers.html
http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/veggies/peppers1.html
http://www.colostate.edu/Depts/CoopExt/4DMG/VegFruit/peppers.htm
http://www.farm-garden.com/growing-vegetables/hotpeppers
I hope these get you started.

I hadn't heard of the Red Savina pepper before you mentioned here but now that I read a bit about it I REALLY want to try one. Here's what one site had to say about them

"GNS Spices of Southern California has developed the Red Savina habanero which has been recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's hottest spice up to 580,000 scoville units! Red Savina Habaneros are the hottest peppers there are!"

Taken from http://www.thescarms.com/hotstuff/pepperfacts.htm

Just as a matter of interest here's is what I would look like
after tasting a red savina -> (and those are not tears of sadness Laughing)

Hey DeputyMoniker, welcome.
You can easily grow peppers in containers in full sunlight.
Growing them in containers will allow you to position the plants out of urines way. Laughing
You will need a 3 gallon container (12 litre) for each plant to supply you with their spicy peppers.
There is no reason to hide your pepper plants away either as they have glossy green leaves, miniature white flowers and of course beautiful coloured fruit.
Team all this with decorative containers and you have a display fit for any deck or front porch.

Thanks for the replies. I got the seeds from 'http://www.redsavina.com'
$5 + $5 shipping for a 50MG packet of seeds.
I found that link on another site who claimed redsavina.com is the site of the people who actually "created" the pepper. It seems they were wrong because redsavina.com states " Red Savina™ is a trademark of GN5 Spices which is not affiliated with redsavina.com"

Thats unfortunate because I wanted to get the seeds from the original source. Sad

Does anybody know where the GNS homepage is? I cant find it.
