Yeesh... I don't like slugs either. Hopefully the damage hasn't been too bad. I got some maggots in about half of my Jalapenos this year... if it's not one thing, it's another, eh? :rolleyes:

When you cut a slug in half both ends regenerate and you get 2 slugs ;-)

Yeah, I guess, last year it was aphids. I think I'm starting to get the population down, I'm not seeing as many of them anymore.

You do realise this isn't true...

Damn slugs are overpopulating over here. Need to buy ducks or something... Someone should figure out how to make a fertilizer or something from slugs... :)

Sorry for the absence guys, I'll try to do an update best I can. I will need a bump later though. 

 

So, we had one frosty morning at the start of October, most plants actually survived it, I think two or three suffered quite a bit of damage. But since then we've not had temps below 2-3 degrees, which has been fine. We're not expecting the next frost until November now, which is really late for Sweden. Great for the plants though. I've been giving away lots of ripe fruit to friends, so I haven't had huge harvest pictures, but I'll show you what I do have. 

 

This was a quick 10 minute inspection where I picked off some ripe fruits. The Rio Huallaga is supposed to be yellow, which it isn't I just realised. There are two peppers on this picture I just can't remember what they were, one looks like a MOA.

I've finally bought a fruit dryer and have been processing the peppers.

2016-10-14%2012.58.42_zpsnxo4avvs.jpg

 

Most peppers moved into the conservatory the night we were expecting frost. The house gives off just enough heat to give these guys a degree or two more at night.

Supposedly Bonda Ma Jacques, I think the pods look a bit off.

Hab Hand Grenade Yellow (not particularly yellow though)

These 3L air pots were simply too small to give a decent crop of chinenses, I think they would have worked better for a fructesence type of pepper that yields a lot of small fruits. 

 

The Rio Huallaga grew quite large and has at least 30 (probably more) big and think fruits on it.

Cheers Rick! Haha, I added the power to some soup the other day, using a tiny amount, that stuff is hot! The heat didn't last long, but it might have been close to too spicy for me. I guess I need to build up my tolerance again. Did my seeds ever reach you? 

 

 

 

Continuing. 

 

The Locato Red has done well enough for my liking. It sort of got squished in with a few more aggressive pepper plants early on, but I'm happy to have a crop. 

2016-10-11%2011.27.50-1_zpsp0hkvjmz.jpg

 

The Rocoto Mini, somehow I expected these to mature quickly, but they took their sweet time. 

2016-10-11%2011.28.22_zpsgcuyhjvz.jpg

 

Trinidad Perfume, most pods are puny, but I did get a few medium sized ones with the correct shape. 

2016-10-11%2011.28.36_zpsk93m4scf.jpg

 

The (probably not) tabasco. Very pretty plant. 

2016-10-11%2011.28.47-1_zpsuz29fmrw.jpg

 

I like the way the takanotsume looks. 

2016-10-11%2011.28.53-1_zpsrgnrn2hl.jpg

 

The (not) Purple Pequin, lots of pods still on it, this was a great producer, pods slightly hotter than a cayenne. 

2016-10-11%2011.28.57-1_zps2kaop7au.jpg

 

My Habanero White Bullet. I keep breaking branches when I walk past it. Very aromatic. 

2016-10-11%2011.29.02_zpsa1zahdjl.jpg

 

My poor Brazilian Star fish, it was a late bloomer, I've not had a ripe pod yet, I'm hoping I get at least one. 

2016-10-11%2011.29.07_zpscikxumzn.jpg

 

The Malaysian Goronong, I love the look of these pods. 

2016-10-11%2011.29.18_zpsqcstl2iq.jpg

 

I have a few more plants in the greenhouse that I did not have pictures of. I'll have to snap them later. Now, I haven't tried all pods myself yet, but I have the intention to. I want to know how each one tastes for future reference. I'll also try to to a full write up on all the peppers I grew this year later.

My Trinidad Perfume is about a bushy 5 inches, seam to be a slow grower.

Healthy looking plants! How is the flavor on the Rio Huallaga? I'm thinking of growing it next year.

Great update Alana looks by all those pods you have had a good season .... What you could do to try and get some colour on the Brazilian Star Fish is cut back any new growth and flowers ... I also reduce watering to a minimum almost shocking the plants into thinking their time is nearly up and they must produce fruit ... all the best for 2017 and thoughts on varieties

Very nice peppers you got there. The pics are great.

It looks like you had a great season and prolonging it well fighting those cold nights and days with moving the plants inside. No doubt you'll get a few more ripe pods that way.

(One of my last plants that still has more than 20 pods on it is Malaysian Goronong... they're ripe, and ready to be used. They're hotter than I expected too. Very nice chinense flavor and taste though. Maybe I'll make a sauce just out of them...)

Wishing you good luck and keep it up. Good work!

Yeah, I find most chinenses to be very slow growers. But even though the fruits were small, I'm pleased about the quantity.

Cheers!

I haven't gotten around to trying it yet actually. I need to get on that, I'll let you know!

I'm very pleased with my season this year, most plants produced, which is a lot more than they did last year. I'm still learning, but the curve wasn't as steep this time around. I'll definitely try cutting back on the starfish, I'd like to get at least one ripe pod to try out. I haven't really planned 2017 yet, but I still have a lot of SB's that you sent me last year and I didn't get a chance to grow this time. Some will definitely go on the list.

Thank you! Yes, I believe taking them inside helped tremendously. I haven't tried the goronong yet, but I grew that one mostly because of the looks.

Plants are looking good. 😊 The Takanotsume is a great looking plant. I've grown them in the past. I replaced it with the Sadabahar. A really hot one from India. Grows similar, except the pods have a little twist. The Sadabahar is really hot for a Annuum. Up there with Tepin heat wise.
