638 + 192 = 830g

Production definitely slowing now. Might be able to get a push of green pods but think I'm close to done with ripe pods.

It's been hot and hasn't rained for about 3 weeks so the remaining pods are smaller and are ripening quickly. Here's another 81 grams for a total of 1122 grams... it looks like I'll be pretty much done by the end of next week, barring a few stragglers.

Today's pull...

1122g + 211g = 1333 grams.

Unless we get some rain soon, it looks like I'll be tapping out at around a kilo and a half. Cheers!b24992f07a5874f9323968ff4dc8c081.jpg

My total so far (27) + 94 = 121g
Considering most of my plants died before producing, i can say this harvest is a success.

I will admit, the aji lemon drop last year destroys the ybs in production as far as weight goes...clearly. We will see how these late harvests come in. They are all putting out two a node, so do the math. The key is waiting on them, since im pickin ripe only. Then your only limit is low long the branches are allowed to get. Also, i chose the helmet head to harvest from. Earlier on the other 3 plants were killing, now the chosen one is taking the lead out of the 4.

I have 4 plants in the dirt but they aren't getting enough sun and didn't get much water in July. They are just now setting tiny pods

Hmmm... 14"s plus of rain here this week has not made for happy pepper plants. I still have almost 4 months :shh:


It's all about the pods....

I had a slight label mix-up so I'm not weighing pods until I do a taste test, but my plant is putting out a few pods now. I'm 99% sure it's the right one but I want to make sure.

I did not want to hear that... We generally can stretch things out here to Columbus Day, but after that the frost comes when it will.

Things got so dry here the past week that the leaves were wilted and hanging limp until we got a soaking rain yesterday. Here's today's pull...

1333g + 214g = 1547 grams... Woot! I passed my target of a kilo and a half and might possibly make 2 kilos if the weather cooperates.

Seems like it's definitely a ybs plant. I didn't weigh or eat that pod because it had a hole eaten in it, but just the smallest sliver was the hottest thing I've ever had; way more than the reapers and primos I've had. My other thought was maybe a p dreadie, which it's definitely not.
