This is an exclusive this year 2019. A cross created by the great grower/hybrid maker Kevin Bane. The name Banestrain is wordplay from the pepper Brainstrain. Kevin has made many cross of which I'm growing.
The cross is of a (Peach Ghost X White Ghost) X Butch T. This is a Super Hot Pepper. F4 level (F4 means filial 4/ generation 4). Kevin created the cross and grew it for a couple years and I grew it for two so far. Major sweetness with major heat. So use caution. In 2018 I ate a full pepper for YouTube. I sweated for many hours. And hallucinated from the high levels of capsaicin.
Dominant shape is almost like a Frankenstein crown by the stem. Slightly bumpy and rigid. Some can be long and get thin towards the end into almost a tail. And some of them our little bit shorter. When one cuts the Banestrain open there is massive capsaicin oil in each one.
Mid-season to late-season producer at least for my area in Pennsylvania. I got this one to produce a little bit earlier because I started in October. First one germinated.
Note: this is the F4 generation. Not 💯 stable. The shape shown in the pictures I'm getting 70 to 80% shapes just like that some of the early peppers are a little bit smaller with less of a tail but the general shape yes.
