#241441 Hatch Pepper sale

Posted by pablo on 12 September 2009 - 12:13 PM in Hot Pepper Talk

Nice haul with no deadhead. :)

And just how long did it take you and a couple of friends to pick 40,000 pounds of peppers?

The same pepper haul to Texas doesn't work today?

we hired a crew of pickers to pick the chile,
2 1/2 days to pick and load the truck.
we hired a truck and driver to deliver it. that took about 16 hours for the delivery and offload at the ware house cooler.
payable on delivery .
Yes someone still does it every season, but not us.
my contact in tx passed away .

something like this requires detailed planning to such a level that the load must be sold before it ever leaves the field,
other wise you'd be setting there with a load that can't be sold.
the tomato load was less profitable,but we figured it would pay for the return trip.
all total we 3 made 1.00 a lb ea.
and expenses made .99 a lb.{pickers/truck,driver,hotel}
we left on a sunday and returned the following sunday.

today it is much more expensive due to fuel/insurance costs.
and mandatory down time for truckers.

#241320 Hatch Pepper sale

Posted by pablo on 12 September 2009 - 12:40 AM in Hot Pepper Talk

One dollar for 5 pounds!!! Damn, that's cheap at twice the price. :)

Back around the new millinium, I was visiting some of my redneck kin folks in Jacksonville,TX.
we decided to go find some green chile so we could show them how it was used.
well let me tell you they wanted 4.99 a lb at the local grocery and I about lost it.
then I had that little bulb in my head go off.
ding! :idea:
next season myself and a couple friends bought a semi load of fresh NM Big Jim ,picked it then shipped it to Tx and made a terrible Nice profit...we paid 15 cents a lb and sold it for 3,99 a lb and still beat the local market price by a dollar...
total weight was just at 40,000 lbs...
we then went to the tomato growers local and refilled the semi with east texas tomatos and brought that back to El Paso
Double Ding! :idea::idea:
it was a real good year for agriculture and I didnt even have to grow it...
Life is Good when you think outside the box.
Free Enterprise...Gotta Love it!

#241026 Hatch Pepper sale

Posted by pablo on 11 September 2009 - 09:50 AM in Hot Pepper Talk

For those of you who are new here, Potowie is a wealth of information, and usually does not say something unless he is intimately knowledgeable about it.

Have a little respect please.

well Im not new here and I have all the respect in the world for Potawie...
that works both ways...



#241020 Hatch Pepper sale

Posted by pablo on 11 September 2009 - 09:35 AM in Hot Pepper Talk

The quality has dropped several years now since the big Rio Grande Flooded the whole town of Hatch...changeing the ph of the soil,so now it is very difficult to get Hot peppers from Hatch...this will improve in a few more years of growing .
Luna County produces a better quality at this time.



#241018 Hatch Pepper sale

Posted by pablo on 11 September 2009 - 09:29 AM in Hot Pepper Talk

Well not really:)

"There is no such thing as a Hatch chile, despite all the hype about them. It is not a chile variety, as many people think. Yes, there are chiles grown in Hatch, usually the varieties 'Barker' and 'NuMex 6-4'. These grown-in-Hatch varieties are no better than those grown in the Mesilla Valley or in Deming. There are simply not enough chiles grown in Hatch to supply all of the sellers claiming to provide "Hatch chile." A few years ago at the New Mexico Chile Conference, I spoke to two women who have a chile farm in eastern Arizona who confessed to me that they shipped their chiles to Hatch, where roadside vendors labeled them "Hatch chiles." So, how did this mythology come about? Well, first, there is a Hatch brand of canned chiles, packed by Border Foods in Deming. This brand has been on the market for years, but probably most of these chiles are grown in Mexico, not Hatch. Then there is what Jimmy Buffet calls the "coconut telegraph," but here it's the Capsicum Telegraph--namely word of mouth and rumor from consumers who mistakenly spread the hype. Sorry to burst everyone's Hatch bubble, but I always tell it like it is."

your telling me about New Mexico Chile?
I live hear mate...thats exactly what Hatch Chile is...
Long Green Chile of many different varities grown in Hatch New Mexico...if it aint grown in Hatch New Mexico then it aint Hatch Chile...
and yes Luna County New Mexico does produce alot of Green Chile
and fyi I help build Border Foods some 20 years ago,so if your gonna tell it like it is then tell it right.
Mexico does not grow hardly any Long Green Chile...
they do however grow tons of Jalapenos...
and Border Foods runs many Labels all from the Same chile crop.

#233958 bhut problem

Posted by pablo on 25 August 2009 - 10:34 PM in Growing Hot Peppers

Hi IGROW
I too grow some
They look over heated and stuffy...

increase exhaust ventilation and add a 400 watt Metal Halide
or a 4-8 bank T5
those two bulbs you have are not even a fraction of the suns power...

you can get a good shop lite and some new cool whites for side lighting if you cannot afford to buy a new light,
however the cost is quickly forgottn after the first bumper indoor crop is harvested...
fyi;
I purchased my first HID light {400watt MH} in 1987 and I still use it today...
not a bad investment for a couple hundred bucks...just replace the bulb often and keep the wireing in good shape...

HI CappY!!!
wassss sappening ?

Nope, not Lockheed Martin for the F-15...thats a McDonnell Douglas (Boeing) airplane....Lockheed Martin made the F-111, and now makes the F-16, F-22, and just out of the blocks, the F-35. I work in Design Integration...specialty field Reliability and Maintainability...we tell you how long the design is going to last and when it breaks, how long it will take to fix it. I retire Friday and it has been a fun career...

#221444 What are the chances...??

Posted by pablo on 24 July 2009 - 01:13 AM in Growing Hot Peppers

Take a n00b planting his first ever crop, seeds which are 8-10 years old, and a home made germinator, and your chances of success are..??

100% better than an expert not trying to do it.
good luck huntsman...
Can Do :)

#218398 First Ripe Bhut Jolokia of 2009

Posted by pablo on 16 July 2009 - 07:13 PM in Growing Hot Peppers

The guys at work yesterday were wanting me to bring something hot in today so I picked this Bhut Jolokia pod a few minutes ago...it is gorgeous and big...over 3" long and weighs 10 grams...this is a Pablo pepper...off spring of the world record plants...

one of the guys is the type that says "you can't make it too hot for me"...we will just see how hot he really likes things...

we will have a taste test about 9 this morning...

I just decided to take a Trinidad Scorpion too just in case the Bhut is not hot enough for their taste...

Nice Pods AJ,
have you ever tried jolokia on a frozen pizza?
slice a fresh one like you would a nacho pepper and just spread out on the frozen pizza...then just cook the pizza...
wow! great taste and superb heat factor...
:hell:

it wont be long now aj...

Legalize It!!!

#218387 Fatalii smackdown

Posted by pablo on 16 July 2009 - 06:40 PM in Growing Hot Peppers

Let's try this one more time. I'd like to thank the THP academy and the man above for giving us the genus Capsicum, because without it all our food would be bland. I'd also like to thank all my sponsors, Prmeier Hort. the makers of Pro-Mix and Neptune's Harvest organic fertilizers. I'd also like to thank my family for putting up with me and all my pepper plants, this afternoon my eldest daughter graduates from H.S., congrats Abigail. And to the supplier of my Fatalli seed, pablo! So without further ado, First Ripe Fatalli Smackdown Champion Pod.:clap::cry::fireball:
Posted Image

Good Show Cappy !, and thank you for the kudos
you do me proud with your growing skills...

Sodium Hypochlorite 3% solution helped your seeds germinate, grow faster and stay healthy than the rest.
its a recommended procedure for improving germination and growth rates in chile seed.
also I suspect you had exceptional weather for the grow season

temperature is the key factor for chile production.
those seed came from a single ,heavy yielding,Early plant
the seed I grew to make your seed was supplied by
Tomato Growers Supply...

good job to all the other pepper heads ...

#200247 Question for the Experts....

Posted by pablo on 30 May 2009 - 11:44 PM in Growing Hot Peppers

Hey aj,
get some liquid Bonide Rotenone-Pyrethrins...
its easy,effective and has a three day half life in full sun light.
Safe for fruits and vegetables...i saturate at dusk on outdoor plants
after sun is off the foliage. if they are infested give a heavy wetting every other day for a week and then let go as directed.
8 oz will do a back yard garden for the season and if you get them hard early,well they never get a grip.
one thing is if you use this when mixing.
pour concentrate into sprayer ,then add water to it.
the other way and the concentrate will not dilute and will float on top of water.
I really hate Aphids/White flys/fungus knats/tick/fleas/lice/roachs/spider mites/spider mites/spider mites...
this kills them all.
just be safe as directed.

#195619 Bhut Jolokia question

Posted by pablo on 15 May 2009 - 09:39 AM in Growing Hot Peppers

jiffy pots are acidic, they tend to stunt root formation.
your plants are slow because they have no/low amount of roots growing...
try this. let dry out some,then one time leach with
ph 7 water only{distilled},then let dry out some.
the roots grow slower in a wet medium and faster in a dryer medium.
my bhuts require little nutrient once they begin to fork.
hot peppers like dryer mediums.
also ck for any pest problems,nats,mites,aphids,all can disease a plant and make it slow down or even die from disease.

good luck man.

#190236 Need the experts opinions regarding my chilies

Posted by pablo on 28 April 2009 - 01:44 AM in Hot Pepper Talk

hi naurin,
something I would recommend you get and add to the fresh nutrient mix is,
Hygrozyme organic enzyme...
its expensive and effective and i wont grow without it indoors under lights.
It keeps the nasties at bay in your nutrient tank,it eats dead matter and old brown roots,releaseing nutrients in a useable form directly to the plants, and the tank stays clean and fresh smellin,like sour mash whiskey.
5ml per gallon per fresh nutrient tank and you wont have many root problems,the roots should be white as snow if they are healthy plants grown in DWC.

it will not effect ph or ec values and the plants thrive .
i yield avg last season was 3.5 kilos per 7inch sq pot in ebb n flo of fatalii and Bhut Jolokia was closer to 5 kilos per pot.
the plants did not stop growing,i just needed to move on. the best jolokia I still have .

Hygrozyme not Hydrozyme...both are available and are claimed similar..they are not.

good luck
pablo



#190127 Need the experts opinions regarding my chilies

Posted by pablo on 27 April 2009 - 06:42 PM in Hot Pepper Talk

im not familar with your schedule,but
DWC deep water culture needs to be fresh with lots of air,and should be changed every 7-10 days maximum in a 40 gallon tank for mature plants.
also,when topping off buckets use fresh water only ,do not add nutrient to top off bucket.
ph should be kept from 6.5 to 6.8...ph is critical in DWC since there are no buffers to protect roots from out of sync nutrient solution,so mixing correctly is important.

if dialed in correctly ,it will out yield most any other type of grow.
dialed incorrectly and you will have nothing but problems.

coco fibre is the way and so much less time/labor consumeing.
1 man can do a 40 x 120 greenhouse and still have time to go fishing ,occasionally.

good luck
pablo
