Is that a ripe pod I can see?

 

I didn't want to make it too obvious and was wondering who would notice it first.

 

Four months of hard work might lead to a harvest on the 21st .   :dance:

Sensational plants everyone. I'm hoping slow and steady wins the race because mine are well behind your efforts!

The race is long,
I might have the heat and sun now, but my January and February temperatures are brutal and I loose a lot of flowers and pods then and only recover in April.

That a big pile of unripe peppers! :confused:

 

This a time to experiment . I would try fermenting, roasting or even smoking.

Good luck!

#1587002 How do you pickle your superhots?

Posted by karoo on 13 October 2018 - 04:26 AM

I've been watching a bunch of YouTube tutorials on pickling peppers and from what I've seen jalapenos and such have been pickled much easier and differently than say a ghost pepper or a reaper. My question is can these peppers be pickled whole just as jalapenos or cut in half impact in to the vinegar brine? Included is a demonstration video on on jalapenos and wondering if all peppers can be treated this way? 

 

That's what I do .

Just finished a jar of Jals  from 18 months ago.

Thanks, I'm working with what I have, the barrel was an old horse trough I inherited and converted to SIP.
I don't plant directly in the ground, because it is simply to dry and all irrigation water just disappears in minutes.
Barrel buried in the ground, to keep it a bit cooler.

Glad to be finished with carrying this guy around.

Time to go to ground. Final grow space will be under 40% shade net, to keep the birds out and protect from the sun, in a 200liter sub irrigated planter, semi underground, to try and keep the roots cool.

Planter filled with homemade compost and a bit of fine eggshells.

#1586678 Start of season sauce

Posted by karoo on 11 October 2018 - 04:34 AM

I am at the start of my new season and about 2 months away from harvesting enough peppers for sauce and I am running out of sauce . I decided to clean out my fridge , dedicated to beer and peppers , and my clean out my allotted space in the pantry . 

 

I found the following ;

- dried orange Thai 2016

- dried red Thai 2015

- dried Guajillo peppers

- Dried African Birds eye peppers from Madagascar , called Pili Pili.

- white beetroot pickled with onions and Chupetinho peppers

- Red Aji mash from March 2018 , including Aji Colorado and Bubba

- A mix of Choc Hab and Chupetinho powder from 2016

- the left over juice from a Jalapeno pickle , including all the Pickling spices.

- Pickled Chupetinho with Onions

 

I think I will make a sauce. :dance:

 

I will keep you updated.

#1586465 Synchronized ripening

Posted by karoo on 10 October 2018 - 01:59 AM

I think the " photo finish" you are referring to is just ripe pods left on the plant for 3-4 weeks while the others ripen to get a big group photo. Nothing happens to the pods on the plant and I believe you get better taste by leaving pods on the plant for 2 weeks after full color is achieved.

Great post and pics.

 

One of my favourite ways to eat peppers.

 

My wife calls it Lava Dust. :onfire:
