Well, it's November 2nd, and we still haven't had a frost. I picked these ajis when I got home from work. It was 75 degrees today, and will be 80 tomorrow. IDK what is up with this great weather,but my plants are loving it. Aji amarillo, aji pacay, aji limo, and aji dulce in this pic. There are still easily 100+ rocoto pods that are approaching either fully ripe, or are starting to ripen. The 10 day forecast shows no sign of frost, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will get one more big Pubescens harvest before winter.

Can't beat those temps for November, and that's anywhere! One also can't beat the late harvests you're getting.

 

You had a super year! Congratulations!

Thabks man, these late year harvests are making me stoked for the next 6 months of fresh pepper free living. I should be able to properly cook my favorite Peruvian dishes for the next foreseeable future though...

Great to see so many pods safely stored away in your freezer

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only person to freeze entire bags of pods. After taking nearly 7 hours to chop and process pods into freezer vacuum sealed bags, I got tired of it and just started throwing them into freezer bags and calling it a day!!!! But I've got peppers for the entire winter now :D

Nothing wrong with freezing sacks of peppers when you're busy ;)  They still dry and cook just fine.

Thanks man!

They will keep my dishes spicy for the cold months ahead.

Sometimes you gotta freeze them! The thicker skinned peppers do best when rethawed. That's why I save so many rocoto and aji amarillo in the freezer.

Yep! I have a gallon bag full of superhots in there too, which I intend to ferment once I get some time.

Great looking pods. I'm glad that I'm not the only one with 3/4 of a freezer full of pods. Need to find some time for kitchen projects.

Time for kitchen projects will be coming soon enough my friend. Winter is coming!

I cut down all my pepper plants today, since we will be hit with a hard freeze this Saturday. I picked off a good 100+ rocoto that were between ripe, almost ripe, and green. These rocoto will be fermented or smoked. I haven't decided quite yet.

20161109_125106_zpswhctorjy.jpg

Ripe and ripening aji limo.

20161109_125657_zps5lyd60ul.jpg

Aji dulce, which taste great green or red.
20161109_125948_zpsxuwp280f.jpg

Ripe aji amarillo, and aji amarillo that will get ripe completely in a week.

I decided to make an all rocoto pepper mash with the rocoto I picked the other day before frost.

Washed them.

20161113_160546_zpswziengfa.jpg

Cut the tops/stem off.

20161113_161923_zpsfhkybyjx.jpg

Mashed them with salt, and put them to ferment. I've never done an all rocoto ferment, and I am looking forward to the result.

Your all-rocoto ferment looks great.  Should be a real flavor bomb.

Hard to beat the pubescens for flavor, and sometimes even a little heat!

 

Here's to a great Thanksgiving for you and your family!
