My orange rocoto in a 7 gallon bag is really going crazy compared to it's in the garden brothers and sisters.

Bagged plant has at least 6 pods going, garden zero.

Thanks for looking, I can't wait to taste one of these.

Containers are the way to grow these in the N.Atlantic. They take a very long time to set up when grown in the ground.

I'd have to agree, I also have a reaper in a bag and it too is doing much better the the ones in the ground. I guess I'll be doing more bags next year.

I haven't been on here in a few months, life happens ya know. I thought you all might like to see my 55 gallon kratky rocoto experiment. This is a Melon rocoto from pepperlovers. You can see some of the wrinkled leaves left from a vicious aphid battle but it seems to have recovered nicely.

More damn rain and my largest mini red dont like it. Oddly the other mini and the Aji Oro dont seem to mind it nearly as much. The larger mini is loaded with LOTS of tiny pods....i mean LOTS but i will be amazed if it holds even half of them. The Aji Oro though looks to be forming a pod on virtually every single flower and the pods are growing like crazy. I got a pod or two almost thumb sized sofar. That sucker germinated and grew sooooo freaking slow. Now i can almost watch it grow daily.

Help me out, guys. 

 

Big Apple Red Rocoto, transplanted a couple weeks ago. This happened overnight Saturday. No idea if it's a pest, a nute, a disease or what. It's suddenly there. No fertilizer applied. Note the slow radiading from top down. It seems to have either quit or slowed dramatically, but obviously the damage is done.

 

Any clues?

Jeez.  It looks like burn.  I can tell you the Big Apple was the most heat/sun sensitive rocoto I've grown, but I never experienced anything like that. It's been outside in the sun for some time now?  My only suggestion would be get it into indirect light - and I remember you don't give them much direct light which makes this even more odd.  Really a bummer to see.  I can see it was a good looking plant up until this.

No, only sun is a very early hour to hour and a half and same at sundown. It never even went into transplant shock, just settled in and went to work. None of the 12+ other rocotos are affected in any way.

Our shit spring continues into summer: 50s, 60s and almost constant overcast. Snotty drizzly rain daily.

Do what I mean, not what I say.....

Smaller Mini red for some reason just isnt bothered as much by all the rain as the larger one. Only some minor yellowing but leaves are not nearly as droopy.

What does stem color mean if anything?

I just noticed that a couple of my mansano's have light green stems and some are dark all most purple.

All the seeds came from the same source. 

I need to look back at earlier pic's, I don't remember them being different.

Thanks.

Ecuadorian sweet Rocoto

That's interesting GIP, I have this one manzano/orange rocoto plant that has always been different then the rest... more of a upright wispy grower. Then this morning I see it's first pepper and it looks a lot like yours.

I've got 6 Manzano Rojos that are approaching the tops of their tomato cages. These usually grow quite large before they start to flower, but are showing small buds already now:

 

IMG_1345.jpeg

 

I've got 2 Montufars - one from a rescue project and one from seed. The one from seed is approaching waist high:

 

IMG_1343.jpeg

 

Also a flower from the Montufar:

 

IMG_1338.jpeg

 

And my Pico Mucho is doing great as well, though I thought several times that this plant was going to die (once it was attacked by a squirrel which ate halfway through the main stem - but it recovered and grew a woody stalk). This plant is also almost waist high now.

there are several pubescens with pods that are not apple /manzano/rounded shape. 

 

they are possibly/probably my favorite domesticated cultivar of capsicum to grow  :party:

Your Montufar and Pico in particular have beautiful foliage.  That's exactly the look I want to see on my leaves during the early season and those pictures do a great job of showing the texture and color.

Yes, the Manzano Rojos leaves are not quite so rich in color - they are also softer, not so "crispy" as the Montufars and Pico Muchos. I think they are native to quite different climates.

 

I think both the Montufar and the Pico Mucho will need potting up here soon. Maybe next week.
