If Spring is only 3 weeks away, you should be in good shape if you bring them in at 11 deg C or lower.


From the pictures, it looks like several of the plants are in large non-porous trash bags.  Or are those breathable grow bags (maybe I can't tell from the picture)?


As long as there's holes in the bottom, it shouldn't be a problem, but I was just curious.

It's good to see I'm not the only one already planing for 2019.

I don't know how many of these I'll actually get to, but here's my aspirations for 2019:
Zapotec Jalapeño
Bahamian Goat
Harold's St. Barts
Criolla de Cocina

And I'd like to try a few of the Lindberg peppers, such as:
Aji Jobito
Aji Margariteno
Aji Rosita

Since this is only August, there's no telling how long this list will be by December. :)

It's weird. When I've been cutting peppers without gloves, the burning in my fingers only starts after I've washed with soap.

However, if I don't wash my hands with soap, there's other parts of my anatomy that will begin burning immediately when touched with unwashed hands. :)

Are they the same? the ones in the bottom pic look like they are getting some of those o'my god heat bumps. they look HOT


Nope.  Not the same type of pepper (as far as I know).


The_NorthEast_ChiliMan was showing an example of the Caylx of a Chinense, highlighting the distinction from an annuum.


My mystery plant hasn't gotten as far as producing pods yet, but I think it will be soon.


I'll post an update if/when I get some peppers far enough along to give more information about the origin of this plant.
