Have you guys smelled the leaves of the Red Rocoto.  Most fragrant leaves I've ever smelled on a pepper plant.

I agree with you there. I trimmed up about 15 rocoto plants this morning, and I had that smell all over my hands. That smell is unique to the cultivar. It is very distinctly Pubescens.

How are you trimming them.  Top or sides?  Looks like the Peruvian Red Rocoto is a spreader.

I trim off each shoot once it forks sideways from the main branch. I only do this the first time it forks. This will force the plant to send a shoot off at each node. The reason I only do it once for Pubes, is because the recovery time, before it sends off new shoots is a solid 2-3 weeks. Other pepper plants send out new shoots in half that time.

I also trim off all of the lower half of the leaves when I trim the shoots.

Mine are still babies and the one larger one with flowers and tiny pods is buried amongst my pickling peppers.

Will update pics once things take off weather wise here....3-4 weeks

I'm trimming some more rocotos right now. Clipped at each shoot, plus the lower leaves trimmed off. I plan on transplanting these outside in a week.

Thanks for the picture Dale.  I think I need to do that with my Aji Amarillo, they are way too tall.  Pretty flower masher.

Mine puts out little flower buds but I'm pinching them off for now.

My Aji Limo Rojo is doing pretty good.  I thought it had spider mites, but not so sure anymore.

This is my P.Dreadie.  It was looking beautiful before I transplanted it.  Now it's getting these deformed

leaves.  I planted it in a sterile mix.  Most of my peppers get like this to some degree.  Some worse 

than others.  I don't know why.  Not too much fertilizer.   I suspect, but not 100% sure is my Common

Milkweed in my back yard.  It's all over the place and some have distorted leaves.  I never use to have

this problem before..  I'm thinking of repotting my P.Dreadie in some pro-mix, and see

Aji Dulce with same leaves.  My Rocoto is okay so far.

My best Mini Red in the fabric pot. Its hard to capture its true color in the sun.

Far right is the Mini Red. Its almost caught upto my MOA Red

MiraFlores. The small bushy one is my first one that had some weird issue. Its growing more like a bonzai with tons of small leaves. The other is a late start that grew fine under the lights.

 

These two plants dont even look like the same thing to me.

Your plants are looking really healthy! You should get quite a few pods from that mini, considering it is already starting to bud.

I transplanted my Red Rocoto's into a couple of raised beds about 3 weeks ago.  Four plants in the rear and three Wiri Wiri pepper plants in the front.  They are doing well and I have several peppers growing already on the Rocoto's.

Both my Arnauchos got flowers now. One of them for some odd reason had a really big growth spurt. Same potting mix, ferts and location as the other one. My Aji Dulce is starting to look nice now but man that thing grows slow.

 

I moved the smaller Mini Red with the flowers to a spot that gets some shade through the day. Near the end of the day will be about the only time it gets full sun. The larger one is in a similar type of spot so i wanted to see how this one responds to it.

I'm very pleased with my Aji Limo Rojo.  It's healthy and seems like it's going to be a good producer.

My best mini red. Flowers should be open in a few more days.

The 2 Miraflores that look so much different from each other. The small bushy one was started around a month sooner but went through a "sickly" phase.

No pods yet i can see but my Arnaucho has a couple.
