The first year I grew peppers I didn't know about clipping buds in Sept. so as frost approached in mid-Oct. I found myself with 20 - 30 plants loaded with green peppers. Found an article (Can't now.) that reported yanking plants retaining root mass, hang upside down in warm area (I used a heated garage.) and spritzing the roots with water every other day, WORKED GREAT (Sorry no pix.)! Leaves died and fell off, stems turned brown but peppers continued to ripen.... Had nice red Jals in Dec.!
Recently I had a mishap and a few branches broke off a Scorpion plant so I brought them inside & left them on a table receiving 4-6 hours of sunlight per day. Most ripened, some rotted... Guess it depended on ripeness when incident occurred.
Sorry for blurriness, smudge on camera lens, wife not happy about other photos I might add....
You are more likely to die from: "Often, the media will report the death of a pepper sprayed victim. Autopsy reports will show that the victim died, not because of the pepper spray, but as a result of the effects of the spray, such as respiratory failure or heart attack."
Yeah no arguing here at all, I just hate everyone naming new peppers because they are mutts and didn't grow true. I am not sure which generation of Jay's I had for peach but I was the first to post the red and peach to this site many years ago. Since they are not far from me in distance a local nursery sells their plants.
I cut down the number of species this year by a good 30%, very bored with all the new stuff and fly by night naming.
