The spring and summer were full of climate twists here on Vesta Farm in Cary, NC. Tumultuous rains followed by more showers made it hard to keep our beloved chiles above sea level, but thanks to the enduring green thumb of founder Benny T all has turned out grand. Some cross-polination, thanks to the ever promiscuous local bees, led to a few new hybrids including an exciting chocolate ghost chile with great heat and tropical flavor.
Most importantly, Benny T's prized crops like the Ghost, Moruga Scorpion, Carolina Reapers and Chocolate Habaneros and Ghosts are dripping in numbing numbers making for a fantastic 2014 Harvest. Get ready for a Super Hot year of farm-to-jar Vesta!
