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

If you like it now, wait until you eat a ripe aji limo. They are really delicious! Great looking plant, BTW.

Man, a dozen to 2 dozen plants is going to yield an really large amount of pods. Hopefully he is ready for all of that picking that is bound to ensue!

Good idea for a thread and some great looking plants.  Rocotos not always getting the attention they deserve!

This was the first Red Rocoto to flower and throw pods back in March.15286428854716233653520013577709.jpg


The others were started later and took forever to sprout but coming along with blooms now. Slowly but surely they are trying.

Miraflores finally got a open flower. I think it likes a tad more sun than the mini red so i moved it for a few days to see.

 

Gave my best mini red a tad more shade. Its flowering very well now. It wont get full sun until late afternoon. My little mini red in a small pot has a couple tiny pods now. It flowers like crazy but is probably still getting a little too much mid day sun.

 

Anyone else noticed that some bugs dont seem to like them as much as other peppers? I got hit with fea beetles (only on the lower patio) and they loved the annuums but hardly touched both Miraflores right by them. Their invasion appears to be over. I didnt see any this morning. Ive heard the life cycle is short and damage isnt as bad as many other bugs.

 

I had 1 CCN plant with some aphids but i isolated it quickly and hosed it down twice with neem. I didnt see any during 2nd spraying but the ants were still there.

So far all my peppers and veggies have been bug free.

But the damn tweety birds are dining regularly on my romaine starts.

A couple pube pics and another "fuzzy wuzzy"

 

Moved the largest mini red behind this lattice and one of the peanut bags. It really helps to keep the fabric pot cool

Miraflores flower. The plant got some very minor flea beetle damage.

These Aji Arnaucho are rather stunning. I cant wait to see how the flavor and heat compares to a beni highlands.

This took me slightly by surprise. The farmers market jalapeno is a furry little sucker too. I will get some better macro pics when it cloudy.

Been enjoying the thread so I thought I'd post a few up.  Not giveaways, but some of the Rocoto varieties I have going this season.

 

San Isidro- One of my favorites. Will grow big and produce heavy even in just a single season here in the PNW.

 

San_Isidro.jpg

 

De Seda - Light mustard yellow pod and a unique aroma/flavor. Another favorite.

Gelbe Riesen

Big Apple - My first year growing these.  Great looking plants, but kinda squat and slower developing so far.

Costa Rican Red

Super shady Mini Red

I got my smaller one setup for only a few hours a day of direct sun.

2 Miraflores that look way different. The small bushy one has always struggled and hates being over watered. Both went into way more shade and should get a bit more shelter from the rain also.

Went outside to check on all of them after another cooler day and some rain. The large Miraflores had quite a few open flowers. The small one still has no sign of even a bud on it. Gunna toss a handful of fish and kelp pellets in it. The brand i got is pretty high in calcium but not super high in nitrogen. This little guy always looks like it needs food after it gets too wet.

 

I still have 2 tiny Mini Reds under lights. As an experiment i just watered them without nutrients for several weeks. They got yellow of course. I stuck a few of these Alaska fish pellets in the potting mix and dissolved some in water too. They bounced right back in a few days. One even had really tiny blooms on it. Im going to up pot them soon and see how they do inside.

Beautiful plants Canedog.  Looks like you have a good climate for Pubescens. 

ShowMeDaSauce, is the Miraflores a good pepper? I will need to check into that one for next year.

 

I have picked about 10 ripe peppers so far on the Aji Limo Rojo.  I have not tried it on chicken or fish yet, but 

I have put a little bit in my cucumber salad.  Only half of a pepper and it gave it a nice kick. Really good.  Today I

put half a pepper in my scrambled eggs with tomato, bell pepper, all from the garden.  Yum Yum.   I'm going to

make another cucumber salad today.  Now all I need is one of Dale's chicken recipes's using this pepper.

I will be growing this pepper again next year.

I do have a few pods on the Peruvian Red Rocoto.  I think I'm going to relocate my plant to another spot where I

can keep a better eye on it.

Not a clue. During the giveaway he had Miraflores red listed. The ones i got had Miraflores yellow on the pack. Ive never grown a rocoto before. I asked for a variety that should produce in my climate. Sofar the mini red looks more likely to work here but i think i got the shade worked out now.

The Miraflores has been diggin the few cool days we had. Little too much rain though so i gave both plants a big handful of fish/kelp pellets. Both should green back up within a couple days.
