#1638090 Aluminet shade cloth %

Posted by karoo on 18 June 2019 - 05:54 AM

60% should not be a problem. I also get 3 months of summer with heat from hell.

Some of my best peppers grow under 40% shade net with full shade from 1 pm .

#1636943 Rocoto growth pattern

Posted by karoo on 12 June 2019 - 02:33 AM

Ya no frost at least, it has been reaching 5 degrees here early mornings. They are under cover on back patio and getting some side sun.

How are your plants doing?

My other Chinense varieties have been moved indoors as they started getting some deformed leaves due to the "cold".

 

Rocotos are doing fine , cut back and overwintering in my garden shed with a big northeast facing window. Only trimmed and not totally cut back , I even left a few fruit on to ripen.

I don't expect too much of them till September , except stay alive!

 

We do get frost and freezing.

#1634330 Pick Now? Or Wait Until More Have Ripened?

Posted by karoo on 27 May 2019 - 08:20 AM

Leave them on the plant if you don't need them right away. They keep better on the plant  than in you fridge.

I love the taste of a riper more mature pepper and often leave ripe peppers on the plant for 2-3 weeks after they changed color.

 

You have a lot of plants! It's not worth it ( not possible) to try and stimulate a bigger production with early picking.

 

...... and most of all , enjoy it!
