I really like the choop , always very productive and attractive plant .

Mine is nice and hot with a distinctive chinense aroma . How do you use yours?

 

 

That is exactly as I'd describe mine Karoo!  Besides eating them whole and wishing I paid the tiny pods more respect afterwards, I've pickled mine in a slightly sweet spiced white whine vinegar this year... can't wait to try them!

Some more pickings...

Aji White Fantasy and Aji Fantasy... beautiful big, crunchy pods.

Rocoto Rio Huallaga grown initially in greenhouse then moved outside end of June, has been podding well all summer and seems in its element in the cooler autumn temps... well over 2m and threatening the view from our living room and the pods have a unique, blistering heat.

Cheers for the quality seed Heefy, look forward to growing another Rocoto variety next year!

Aji Bodysnatcher F4 neglected a bit but now potted on, hoping for better stability and F4 pods this year!

Going to be cold tonight Dennis ... keep warm and let's hope we get more ripening time ... Chup looks a great variety how does it taste

 

Chupetinho is surprisingly hot, those little pods sure pack a punch.  Strong / typical chinense flavour... hoping the pickling process mellows them a little, I've gone for a slightly sweet spiced vinegar.

Looking good, Dennis! Hopefully, you won't get stuck with too many green pods when it's all said and done

Cheers!


Cheers Mike, I've hopefully got at least another month until the final curtain so fingers crossed lots of ripening time!

Just picked and harvested my Chupetinho, over 200 pods from one plant in one pull ain't bad!

White Bhut W Strain, developed by Jay Weaver... seeds supplied via Justin at white hot peppers... gnarly white bhut pheno that ripens through white and ends up deep ivory / pale lemon colour. They are really hot and tasty, love white pods! Think I'll be rustling up a special batch of powder with these bad boys!

Harvested Giant TS CARDI pods tonight, some absolutely massive ones... not the a-typical CARDI pheno as from my veteran but great looking pods nonetheless.

Wowzer!  Some monstrous pods on display, excellent work gentlemen!

Time for an update!  As I noticed the first signs of mould so have evicted my 4 tomato plants which were pretty much spent anyway to make more space and allow better airflow in this damp, cold start to September we are having.

Lots of poddage and ripening, here is a shot of the GH with White 7 Pot removed from it's central berth... as you can see loads of colour, soon be big harvest time.

27cedf37a9469af7ca7ab5fd39ec8c38.jpg

White 7 pods turning, absolutely loaded... however more ivory / pale yellow than white as you often find with 'whites'.

I've just taken delivery of 100 jars and my apple tree is creaking, so apple and chilli chutney time beckons!

Outdoors, Beaver Damn and my Rocoto are soldiering on manfully, podding nicely too.

Aji White Fantasy

Aji Jobito & Aji Margariteno - both chinense 'Aji', both supposed to be heatless, both packing a punch - more so the 'Jobito'.

As is the Growdown Aji Lemon Drop!  Come on baby!  I'm currently on 768g for the season from the one plant, but a little dissapointed as the plant seemed to stall just as it was getting into full flow.  Think I overcooked the nutes to be honest, back to good 'ol NutriGrow and it's off and running again.  Hope to make 1KG +.

Finally, my LOTG SB MoA... a victim of mislabelling, it ended up in a 6l chilligrow as opposed to the 15l AirPot I had destined for it.  It is podding up a treat, I can only dream of what might have been!
8885b1e49a530e611a10636dc42547c6.jpg

Oh and here we have Aji Bodysnatcher F4 seedlings, hot to trot for pods by year end hopefully!

Good job Simmie, you've got me beat!

It looks like my final entry will be the Aug 30th post Dennis. The weather here is cooling off and the rest will be smaller.

Great effort from everybody on both sides of the pond. [emoji106]

Really interesting, I've noted plants in the past seem to chuck out massive final pods as the weather cools (desperate survival bid?), perhaps something to do with local conditions but I'll certainly be monitoring very closely from hereon in!

EDIT: Maybe this has something to do with growing under glass Vs outdoor growing prolonging the viable season.

Deciding to pick a handful of ripe pods today... inching towards the 1kg mark... come on baby you can do it!
 
60g + 708g = 768g so far
