Hello, last Fall I left a good amount of ripe Cayanne peppers that were a little mushy in my garden bed, I thought the seeds would not survive freezes. I guess they did, all of these are self seeded Cayanne pepper plants. Has anyone else had this happen? Were the peppers good from them? I dug them up and put them into neat lines just so I could pick them better.

Should be fine as long as they were peppers from a good source and not a hybrid.

I have volunteer plants every year.

 

Since they do not usually sprout until June, they never get as big as the ones I start indoors.

 

A couple years ago, I had an interesting volunteer; a Caramel Madballz. Thing is, I only had only grown the brown Madballz the previous year.

 

I saved seed and grew a couple plants the next year, and they were also Caramel. I probably still have some of those seeds... somewhere...

I have already killed no less than 500 volunteer plants, keeping a few that I 100% know what they are.

I have probably 1000 volunteers popping up in my beds at the community garden. Most are Jalapeños and Serranos for sure; many others are likely orange Thai and some might be Guajillos, which is a real byitch, bc I need to grow some Guajillos but I won't know what these are until far too late....

I was gonna yank every last one of them, but I just don't have the heart to kill healthy chile plants. However, I don't have nearly enough room for them and I have tons of plants that need to go in the ground, or were just recently planted, right where these are growing, as dense little clusters...

You are entering the buttocks with the spicy hand of Chinese pepper? And pleasure from this low pepper? I am not sure but the scorpion pepper musk when raw, is the sexual experience. This is granted, and evident in the taste, and the woman jealous.

Can you/would you pot them up and put them out as freebies?  Kind unknown, but most likely ...

 

People love free stuff.

 

Or sell them on Craig's list.  Unknown hot peppers. 5/$5.00.

Ah, I don't use PayPal, so if I forget to say it in a PM, I said it here, so I didn't really forget, to say it.

That's totally something I'm want to do, if I only had the time. But between working like mad, my home life, my more pressing chile obligations, and my other hobbies, it seems like I'm already kinda overextended.

Plus, just dealing with some of these Craigslist crazies takes a ton of time, energy, and patience. Trying to pot all those tiny plants might actually the easy part of that whole proposition. 😵😵😵

Yeah, trying to do everything you want to do takes too much time.  You have to prioritize. 

 

I'm learning to say "no" and not volunteering.  Ignore me!
