Doesn't work.  I use worm castings every year, and every year, I get pests.  Where there are pests and food, there are pests on the food.  It's worse if your plants are in bad shape, but they don't avoid healthy plants.  Doesn't matter if top dressed, sprayed on, etc.

We have a known endemic of these pests where I live.  Nobody gets away, worm castings or no.

Congrats Lek! Condolences solid7.

#1574909 Pepper rinsing

I wash my produce just before using them. If you wash then store it's most likely going to rot faster.

#1574803 How Far Apart Should My Pepper Be So They Don't Cross Polinate?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 11 August 2018 - 11:50 AM

How far apart should my peppers be so they do not cross polinate? I might have to move some, they are about three feet apart but I want to save seeds for the winter.

3' ain't gonna cut it.

Seed Isolation Distances

 

Scroll down to peppers in the Plant Isolation Distances Table.




#1574007 These don't look right?

Sometimes the first few pods are off phenotype?

#1573693 First time chillie grower

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 06 August 2018 - 03:54 PM

Just a thought of why my Reapers look different. I've been growing them next to a Doughlah chocolate and a bhut jolokia, do you think they could of cross pollinated?

`

This is a common misconception, crosses will not show up until you grow the seeds in these pods.




#1573603 Which of these varieties would you choose?....

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 06 August 2018 - 05:15 AM

I have a king boc that went peach too. This thread made me have to grow the goat next year though

 

I was thinking the same thing...




#1573546 Thinking about selling

Just curious, why dont you want to deal with PayPal? If they send you say, 20 bucks PayPal charges you 80 cents. There is no charge If they send it friends and family.

`
A long time PayPal user here. Generally there are no problems but the major issue is they will ALWAYS side with the buyer. They buy your stuff then file a complaint and get their money back. While they claim equitable decision making, my experience is quite different.

#1573513 NECM 2018 Topped & Not Topped Glog

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 05 August 2018 - 05:00 PM

Will be interesting to see how the production differs in timing and volume.  I've topped a lot of nagas - especially when they're going to spend much time under lights - and had great results.  Also had great results with the more outdoor ones I didn't top.  Never done a side-by-side though.  Think I'll stay tuned and see how this proves out.


This weeks update. An addendum to my growing in 6a, with an average first frost date of Lawrence/Lowell being late Sept. - mid Oct., I start pinching flowers/buds mid-September as these will never reach maturity.

OK so these group pix are in the same order as last post but with details in 2 X 2 posting. In other words, 1st pic is of the pair, next 2 pix are of not topped & 2nd pair pix of topped. You'll note the consistency of 1st two pix having pods, not topped, & the 2nd two pix, topped, just flowers. My observation at this point is the non topped plants have further along fruit but less buds than non topped. No I did not count either, the count will be ripe fruit at seasons end.

`So what I tried to capture in the four pix that follow the plant pix is the 1st two have pods, non topped plant, & the 2nd two, topped plant, have a lot more flowers but no pods yet.....

#1573385 Mystery Pepper - Multiple Blooms per Node

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 05 August 2018 - 07:05 AM

 

Thanks!

 

It's healthy and starting to put out a lot of blooms, so in a few weeks, I should have some actual peppers to look at. :)

 

You're welcome.

 

After pods form, look for constricted Calyx, as this is another indicator of C. chinense. The pic below is a very good example and other peppers may not be as exaggerated as this one, a Trinidad Scorpion - Cardi cross (Sorry no seeds!).

I say this upfront; I will never use PayPal, and I understand that is what most everyone uses for Internet sales.

#1573287 Mystery Pepper - Multiple Blooms per Node

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 04 August 2018 - 03:55 PM

Multiple fruit per node, plus those giant leafs, indicates C. chinense species.

#1573072 2018 - The Farm

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 03 August 2018 - 04:32 PM

Today's big announcement is I found a local food distribution place that distributes food to area needy families (over 1,000 of them) which has agreed to take our unsold produce. 
 
It's either that, or unsold food goes on the compost pile... would rather feed folks who need it.
