Time to harvest this 2nd- year thai plant. The pics a little blurry. The plant has started dropping its leaves as it was quite lush during the summer. It's over 5 1/2 ft tall. I cut it down to an nub last season and it grew right back like a weed
The other thai 2nd- year plant (different variety) looks like it might not produce anymore this season. I prolly got 50- 60+ pods off of this plant all season. Best pod producer yet for me. It has plenty of flowers and a few small pods forming but it seems to be slowing down too. Cut the last 3 off of it for dinner tonight:
bhut jolokia indian carbon (3 pods), yellow 7-Pot (2 ripe [ate 1/2 of one] and 6 green pods), and in the background my choc habanero (6 ripe pods and 5 green)
Rocoto. Only two pods but they are growing nicely. Haven't harvested any off of this one yet and I planted it early spring. Pruned it back significantly to direct all the resources to the pods. During the summer this plant was enormous growing out 2-3 feet laterally. I think the pods will start ripening soon. Can you see them?
that seemed to go dormant in the main trunk and drop all new growth as I mentioned earlier. Pruned the trunk back because there wasn't anything growing there anyway & now the offshoots seem to be doing ok. Maybe I'll get some pods off of this one? Should I try to train it to grow upwards w/ a string & a stick?
