Work keeps me busy during the day and today I filleted my hand on a ring gear, so typing has taken some time.

We rebuild the rows alternately, every couple years.  First a layer of yard waste, sticks, tree limbs, grass, leaves, barn scrapings.  Then a layer of top soil.  Even whole tree branches are turned to dirt by the time of the next reset.  Not saying it is the best method in the world, but so far no sign of bad nourishment even with no chemical fertilizer.
Your turn.  How do you grow?

Ever heard of Lasagna Gardening? I used it for years and above sounds very close! Keep layering... leaves - grass clippings - weeds - potato peelings - wood ashes all good! Good Great growing season AJ!

Huh, it seems weird that they list it as an annuum. I'd think something with the ghost name and rated at 900k shu would definitely be chinense.

While  Johnny's Golden Ghost - annuum shows individual pods in pic Totally Tomatoes - Golden Ghost Hybrid Pepper - chinense shows them on the plant, sure does look like multiple fruit per node (See below.) but both sites list this as a cross so, Inheritance and transfer of multiple-flower character from Capsicum chinense into Capsicum annuum.....

"Although it is unlikely that the multiple-flower character can be transferred to C. annuum in its full intensity while maintaining a horticulturally-acceptable phenotype, it may be possible to breed varieties which produce an average of more than 1.5 flowers per node, a value 50% higher than existing C. annuum varieties."

Hope this helps! NECM

Sorry, forgot... After grow out, pix of mature fruit, would show annular constriction....
In addition, the fruit of habanero chillies usually have an annular constriction between the calyx and pedicel, see below.
