Those red pointy ones look like chupetinho (if they are hot) or biquinho (if they are mild)

Thank you,

yes,  definitely hot and it looks like the web pics of the chupetinho.

 

After a quick search I'm quite certain this is what it is.

Fruity , Sweet , Hot , Hab smell , Small but very productive plant.

I am going to say that it is not a Chupetinho.  Choops are more defined.  Those almost look like crosses.  Maybe a Caribbean Red x Chupetinho?   There are other peppers with that shape...  Cheiro Recife, also the PI 543208 if I remember correctly...

In the wonderful world of peppers.
A tale of two pepper plants from one seedpacket. Orange Thai, both prolific and beautiful plants , so no complaints.
One more typical orange and the other changes from green to red with a little purple inbetween.

Might have crossed or maybe just variables in phenotype.

Your thai's are really loaded with pods, nice.  I love your potting shed.

+1 on #44... it does look like a Chupetinho - Caribbean Red Hab cross both in the habit of the plant and the pod size and shape. Very cool!

 

Does the plant you showed with purple on the pods get more sun than the other? It looks like suntan to me.

 

You've done really well with your grow this year guy, and I love the Pomegranates! I may try using some in sauce after reading your post. Cheers!

It's an interesting one. Some of the pods in the basket look like ose uttoro too. Gotta love it when nature throws out some oddballs

I really,really,really wish birds could taste hot peppers. Due to severe drought local birds have turned to gardens for food. Not only peppers, but also the plants and leaves.879416634b76b85165da287bdb4c4e49.jpg

But, there is a success story. A few plants have been spared.
My very first Bhuts.

There are some advantages to living in our very hot dry climate, drying my choc Habs and Scorpions in the sun , no dehydrator needed.

Nice harvest money shots Jacques! Birds are a pain for sure, but at least they're not Monkeys or those huge Land Snails, eh? ;)

Thanx Stickman

It just amazes me that a bird can eat about 10-20% of its own weight/size in Chocolate habanero and come back for more.  :surprised:  :crazy:

Hi,

From my plants not attacked by birds I have harvested enough peppers to dry.

Closest to the camera my Guajilo , excellent grower and producer .

Three days of extra hot weather is enough to dry these in the sun.

This one was supposed to be a 7pot bubblegum.

How long before the calyx turns red or not a bbg7?

     Guajillo chiles are a workhorse in Mexican cuisine. I think you'll like the flavor in things like Enchilada sauce and Carne Adobada. They also add it to chocolate along with cinnamon. I'll bet they make great pepper jelly too.

     Sorry guy... I think it would have started bleeding by now if it was going to. Still nice-looking pods though. :thumbsup:

The Malawi Piquant , African Baccatum

The very popular "Peppadew" , maybe shunned by pepper community for being too popular with the general public.

Peppadew, only refers to the specific brand name and process of preserving and canning the piquant pepper.

To me it is an excellent pepper to grow and eat and has all the great Baccatum qualities. The peppadew product goes through a specific process that reduces the heat of the pepper and the fresh pepper has a much better taste and heat.

I would compare it with the Aji Lemon in heat , flavour and firm crunchy flesh. It is the best fresh as a snack , but you can see why it is a favourite for pickling and stuffing.

 

I have a few plants , but this is my 18month old overwintered Piquant last September.

And now , about 6 feet high and wide in a pot .

It is easy to deseed , just a simple cut around the stem an the whole core is removed and the rest of the pepper can be stuffed.

Thanks for sharing! A lot of us have wondered where Peppadews came from. Really nice tree after you OW'd it too!

A small Baccatum harvest.
Aji lemon and Malawi Piquant.
I think I found the subjects for my first crossing project.943d54a8db46fb6e7982e9d0d89b9943.jpg

Looking good Jacques.

Sorry to hear about the birds. My enemy is grasshoppers. The result is the same.

Nice harvest. Great looking plants.

With the birds moving in on my harvests and Autumn around the corner I decided to better protect my end of season harvest. Still a good 2 months to go.

A few old poles and some new 40% shadecloth should be enough.IMG_20170307_141116.jpg

 

IMG_20170307_140932.jpg

 

I decided to try my hand at crossing and decided on mating my two new favourite peppers , Aji Lemon and Malawi Piquante . Both Baccatums and both love our hot dry climate . I will try to cross them both ways and then try to grow out from each mother plant and also recross again. Using a teabag to isolate.

Big question; How long do I keep those bags on??
