I am starting this thread for folks who received some Pubescens seeds from me through the Pubescens giveaway. I figured it would be fun to see everyone's progress, plus have a general place to share any pics, growing techniques, and general Pubescens knowledge. I wish everyone great success in their gardens this year.

Even if you didn't receive seeds from me, and want to contribute info about your Pubescens plants this year, please feel free to share.

I guess I might as well start this thread off. I decided to germinate some seeds from this pack some friends brought me from Peru last year. I'm flying to Cali tomorrow morning so paper towel germination is perfect!

I'm interested to see how this commercialized variant of Pubescens will fare on the East Coast. Most of the Peruvian Pubes I've grown here in NOVA love the weather, and absolutely love the late Summer/Fall. I'll probably grow out four of these plants in 10 gallon pots this year, and give out the rest of the plants to Peruvian friends/neighbors.


I also started germinating some:
Aji Largo
Peruvian Red Rocoto
Giant Yellow Rocoto
Rocoto Arequipeño
Turbo Pube
Ecuadorian Red Rocoto
Guatemalan Red Rocoto
Miraflores Market Yellow
Aji Oro
Mini Red Rocoto

I'll be germinating more once I get back.

Mine have tails in the rock will but nothing has popped above the surface yet.

Should have hooks at least in the week or so.

First time seeing this thread. Ill take pictures of mine tomorrow if I remember. I received my seeds in October before you did your Pubescens giveaway. So, some of mine were started earlier.

In the first picture I have 1 Peruvian Red Rocoto in the back, biggest plant that I started in late October.  The next 2

largest in the middle is Aji Limo Rojo, also started late October..  In front is Aji Arnaucho started same time.  

Second picture is my only Aji Oro, that one was harder to get gemination for me.  I have some more Peruvian Red

Rocotos, but those are smaller, started later.  Also have Aji Largo, lots of Aji Dulce, not a Pubescens, but best germination

out of all the seeds you gave me, that's why I have so many, which is not a bad thing.  I also have 2 more small Aji Arnaucho,

which are growing slowly and kinda tall for it's size.

Your plants are looking super healthy Roper! I'm sure you'll be getting a ton of pods from those plants this season.

I purchased a Red Rocoto online in spring of 2017 but it did not grow very fast.  At the end of the season it had one small pod on it, and I re-potted the plant into a bonsai size container to overwinter.  This is what I had on January 31 of this year.  It is amazing that a plant this size had no problem supporting such a large pepper!  A week later I tried the Rocoto pepper for the first time and now believe it is my favorite pepper for texture, taste, and heat.

I took 8 cuttings from that Red Rocoto and they are growing very nicely.  They are such beautiful plants!

Very nice PepperJackOne.   My Rocoto is growing more out than up.

Thanks, Roper.  The Fatalii and Chiltepins directly behind it may give the illusion that it is taller than it actually is.
