I'm going to save whatever green pods I have left for A green baccatum sauce.


Y'know, I pretty much picked all of mine with the same intent, but I spent too much time trying to get them to ripen.


It's ok, I'm going to have plenty, and my dehydrator has been going nonstop for weeks already.


Besides, I picked up a wealth of information to utilize next season!

Yes, that's a ghost.

Next season the bulk of my grow is going into buckets, especially the long breathers like Aji Amarillo and Brazillian Starfish and the Thais. I brought the potted Aji Amarillo and the Aji Mango in around a week ago, the Mangos are almost all picked now, and the Aji Amarillos are doing this...




This is wonderful. I picked the green Amarillos in the 8th acre, a small handful actually started to ripen, but they all puckered and spoiled really fast, some over night.


But this works. I just have to convince the cats to CUT IT OUT!!

Hay Gary, I saved every single seed from those Dreadies, they weren't by chance open pollinated next to, say, a fatali or some such? I'd like to try again next year with these, hoping for a pure strain.


BTW, the Dreadie/Mahalas are one of the most successful plants I had this year. Every single pod ripened on the vine! I'm freezing them for posterity, and recipes down the line.

I'm working the banana trick right now. It'working wonders on anuums like paprika, urfa biber and gochu, sporadically on pubescen, not at all on bacaatum or chinense, not for me anyway.

My orange thai, another anuum, didn'get the memo. Out of a hundred or so not one has started to turn.

Amazingly, some of the chinense is spontaneously turning color, mostly the superhots, but they're just in a produce box in the garage, no ethylene enhancers.
