Peruvian Red Rocoto is looking really good.
Lots of flowers and five new pods set:

Pods ripening up nicely under the dense canopy:

I'm going to try copying your scaffolding for one of my plants that has decided to try to become a ground creeper

Thanks, fellas. I am glad to see the three-gallon

container looks sufficient for the Rocoto.

 

I like this support method because the

branches are still free to move in the wind.

I was sucking water out of my container saucers

with a shop vac because the weather hasn't been

hot enough to evaporate the overflow or cause

the plants to take it up. The heavy rain showers

the past couple of weeks have kept the trays full

of water.

 

I was careless and accidentally got the shop vac

close to my Goat's Weed and sucked a couple of

leaves off!  No real harm done:

Pods on the Aji Amarillo are fattening up:

The Aji Amarillo are always one of my best producers.

 

 

The downside is the amount of time it takes to ripen. 

I leave green pods on the vine every Fall, but this season

in the 3-gallon pot, I can move it to the greenhouse or

garage for longer ripening up time.

 

Your grow is looking good, Deo!

Last year i used 4 of the 3 gallon size IIRC and got quite a few peppers off those plants. 3 were Dreadies that produced very well. Aji amarillo is on my list for next year. In some cases it seems like smaller pots will cause the plant to produce a little sooner. Total yield might be less but when growing time is limited its certainly an option worth trying. Sure beats having a bunch of leftover greeners.

Thanks, I have gotten a ton of great advice here. Especially the DISGUSTING fish fertilizer my plants are loving so much.

Aji Amarillo is definitely on the grow list for next year. My Peruvian neighbor basically insisted.

From the picture it almost looks like you have more pods than leaves. How is that possible?

The cold, cloudy, rainy weather punctuated by

a few hot days  followed by a hail storm a few

days ago pretty much toasted the larger leaves

over the past two months. It has not been good

growing weather here.

 

If  your peruvian neighbor wants you to grow Aji

Amarillo, then you should grow some Red Rocotos

as well!

And Aji Panca!!!!...Easy to grow and produce they just take forever but that wont be a issue in Georgia.

 

Im thrilled to finally get a chance at a nice batch of rocotos. Wish they were larger reds but at this point i will take what i can get. Be sure to pick a variety known to produce well in your climate.

Ooh. Always nice to see new PdN's show up.

 

The downside is the amount of time it takes to ripen.

 

Argh... dealing with this on my one producing White Devil's Tongue. I didn't think it was actually going to fruit at all; my other one still hasn't (it's clinging to life for no apparent reason despite me tossing it in a corner of the carport and ignoring it for the last couple weeks).

Cold? I've forgotten the meaning of the word.

I need to find a rocoto variety that will survive here. I have two montufar plants, and they are still alive though not thriving

Yeah, pubescens varieties like the shade and cooler temps.

Too much heat/sun and the flowers just drop off.

Try aji oro. Mine has taken everything so far and not much bothers it a whole lot. SUPER slow germination and early growth but sofar its great after that. Its a hot weather variety rocoto.

Wait, what? I have the perfect yard for them. (Googles stuff.... orders Manzano seeds). Sweet!


Note to self: Don't panic till August.
