Cross a Cayenne with Dorset Naga

Today I try to purposely cross a Cayenne with Dorset Naga. I don't know if you can but it may well be worth a try.

I took and picked away the bloom leaves of a outslagen Cayenne since I also took off the stamens as only the pistil was left. I took a flower from the Dorset Naga and rubbed lightly des stamens against Cayenne flower pistil. I then noticed the flower by hanging a small patch on blomstjälken so I can keep track of which fruit is crossed.

      Hi Kalle!
      I managed to apparently no further then the seed not to germinate. I and others got some seeds have tried in every way but they would not. It can be like this sometimes when you cross various kinds. But I will try again this year, Shame on giving up.

    Hi, I bought the seeds from the Carolina Reaper and Maui Purple on going to try to cross them 2 so I have a strong fruit with purple leaves, which should cross the? Is it from Reapern to Mauin? Can you get a fruitful year then or have to wait a year?

    Best Wishes, Jörgen

      Hi! I am not a specialist when it comes to crossing the chili but I know how to do. You may bring pollen from Carolina Reaper and pollinate Maui Purple and vice versa. It is important that you pollinate the flower before it was developed completely. You will then notice the flower for it's seed from the fruit that develop later you take and germinate next year and only then you can see if it managed to.

      Good luck!

        AHA, but I will remember .. I bought Mauin just because it was a lovely on the unusual color, It was a bit cold (30000 Scoville) does not matter.
        But thank you for a good answer, hope it succeeds 🙂

    Hey Stig. Have you continued crossing attempts? Someone who succeeded?

      Hi! I have done some intersections this season but if successful I do not know until when I grow these seeds. Hope to come up with something interesting.
