#1470357 What pods can you buy at your local markets?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 25 June 2017 - 08:42 AM

Howdy neighbor! I'm in Cherry Hill and haven't found many good places, other than Shoprite, that stock various peppers. What am I missing? Who else has a good selection? (besides my freezer...)

 
You could start with asian markets?




#1469628 Chocolate Starfish & Hot Dog Flavored Water

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 22 June 2017 - 02:43 PM

The_Northeast_Chileman has a great capsicum species crossing chart floating around somewhere. Hopefully he sees this and can post it


I'll get to that chart in a minute but first is the OP needs to review some instruction as there are many sites on how to cross peppers but I recommend Crossing and Breeding Chile Peppers (how to create your own hybrids!).

Edit to follow-#1-.5:05pm..The reason for above & this edit is the chart below - note the female/male flower relationship.

Edit to follow-#2-.05:55pm...Commitment.. Do you know how many seasons/years it takes to grow out a cross?

 Added/Edit/6/23 - This is in response to:
 

are there any choc/brown baccatum?

is it easier to cross if they're both baccatum?


It's not easier but more productive if they are, note in 1st chart above that if both parents are C. baccatum that they get a HF rating for their offspring.

And last but not least......a brown C. baccatum..... TOUGH TO FIND! The only thing I can find is Aji Panca which some sites claim is Aji Panca C. baccatum and others Aji Panca C. chinense...

We enjoy a mixture of peppers but a main one I'm looking to get my hands on is the California reaper.

#1468627 Grinders

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 19 June 2017 - 02:42 PM

I used to use an old Krupps coffee mill

I didn't clean the coffee grinder very well once
I was told I needed to buy my own grinder.

the wife bought a Magic Bullet to make smoothies. Of course I bought a 4 blade base & cup for my peppers

 

Ya know, you sound like my wife........

#1467017 Grinders

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 15 June 2017 - 07:05 AM

I used to use an old Krupps coffee mill until the wife bought a Magic Bullet to make smoothies. Of course I bought a 4 blade base & cup for my peppers and to keep her smoothies cool!




#1466428 Free plants Gloucester Massachusetts

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 13 June 2017 - 04:29 PM

Sounds like a winner! What wood did you use?

 
No wood whatsoever! I used 75 percent cotton and 25 percent linen to buy chipotle peppers and added my own dehydrated Chocolate Habs to the Magic Bullet grinder/processor.

Amazing olfactory orgasm! Unbelievable mouth burn!

 

YMMV




#1466327 Separating Established Habanero Plants

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 13 June 2017 - 11:14 AM

As already posted, root damage in separation would "set back" plant growth limiting pod maturity time, IMO. If you could transplant all 4 into a 20 gal tote bucket that would be best.

I have a few 5 gal. pails left so I'll take 3, pick of the litter please!

I'm currently unemployed so I can stop by anytime but early AM best for me, PM me with your date/time requirements. What should I bring? You like powders? I'm diggin' on a smoked Jal/Chocolate Hab mix I just processed in the family's Magic Bullet (Of course I have my own grinder parts silly!) sprinkled over a pepper & sausage snabitch..... Sorry, no more sausages or peppers, just the powder!

#1465955 Looking for new ideas for new container mixes

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 12 June 2017 - 09:53 AM

I understand. I would rather water every 1-2 days than wait 5 days to water again. Thats just me.


With Al Tapla's 5-1-1 Container Mix mix that schedule is probably close and there is plenty of pepper specific help here.> Pepper Specific 5-1-1 threads

#1465939 Can I get a toast for the season that ended before it began?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 12 June 2017 - 09:00 AM

The upside of this is that you'll learn it's hard to kill a chile.
 
Let them grow.

Don't give up hope. There are some in the picture that will still grow and produce pods. Peppers plants can endure some nasty stuff and still over come.
 
Trim the extremely damaged stuff and treat as though nothing happened.
 
I would vs. throwing in the towel.

 
 
While I agree with above and others about pepper plant resilience, your plants will rebound (And I don't believe being under 3 hour hail soak will damage roots.) but with your short growing season you need to start planning for the cooler temps and moving plants to a warmer spot for those late season pods. OH, and so sorry for the setback!
