Heya Shurb, been awhile! Plants looking great ;-)

My rocoto dropped flowers left and right for the longest time too. Didn't really set pods until like September or October. I got may a handful of ripe pods. Heat must do them in.

Well, funny thing about that. Now it's setting pods nicely :)

Brazilian Starfish

Bugger is getting really tall.

I'm 6'2" and it's above my waist. I tried to get some perspective, but I dunno if I pulled it off. Oh well :party:

Niiiice man! So Jealous. Do you keep them under shade at all? I think that was my problem this year. Should have put up some shade clothe to help keep them cool over the summer.

 

Funny thing is I still got two Rocoto plants outside trucking along with temps as low as -4C some nights lol. The leaves are all gone, but the fruit are still in tact and starting to show some color. Pretty crazy. Dunno how much longer this will last though.

Yeah they're on a verandah facing N/N/E and they barely get any sun, but quite a lot of light is about. The only thing I've had to worry about with them is the aphids =\

 

Got some more pics that I was unable to post the other day.
