#1606514 Shishto Peppers at supermarket

Posted by DontPanic on 17 January 2019 - 10:05 PM

I'm glad a ran across this thread.

 

I grew a Shishito this year, but I ended up throwing many of them away, primarily because I had no idea when to pick them and what to do with them.

 

I kept waiting for them to ripen up.  They will eventually ripen up to a nice red color, but they wilt really fast at that point.

Will the one with Elite WiFi automatically post to THP when they hook?




#1606139 Pusa Jwala?

Posted by DontPanic on 16 January 2019 - 09:55 PM

This looks really similar to a pepper I grew this year just called "Jwala".

 

I'm not sure if it's a "Pusa Jwala", but it looks really close.

 

I still had a few over-ripe/under-ripe hanging on the plant (we haven't had a hard freeze yet).

 

Here's a picture:

I'm doing a side-by-side comparison of 4 of Paul's white seeds alongside 4 seeds I saved from the plant I grew this year.

 

It's a small sample size, and I didn't isolate, so there's always a chance mine are crossed.

 

It'll still be interesting to me to see how they do.

I noticed your dragon was "bumpy".

 

I thought maybe dragons work the same way as peppers.  :confused:

 

Is it some kind of "Super Hot" dragon?  :D

I like the mirrored kaleidoscope effect of the peppers in a stainless bowl.  :)

It was. Definitely don't do that.

 

Now what am I going to do with all that rocket fuel I bought off Ebay?

Thanks for the 2018 Garden Walk Through.

 

I was able to put names on several more of those peppers from the SFRB.

 

I wonder if that Campana pepper is related to the Bishop's Crown?

Damnit!

 

I got tempted into looking this up on the Internet also!

 

Now I'm seeing the strangest ads when I browse the Intenet.  :confused:

 

And Alexa has quit talking to me altogether!

Heres the way I see it. The seeds that came from
the F6 plants are F6 seeds. Planted this season they
will produce the F7 plants/pods/seeds. Thus, the F7
grow.

So, the seeds marked F2 mentioned above will produce
F3 plants/pods/ seeds the following season.

I think that makes sense to me, but I could be
all wet 😜

 

I always thought it was the other way around.  I thought the seeds in a pod were a generation ahead of the pod itself.

 

If you cross a stable Jalapeño (Father) with a stable Cayenne (Mother), the Cayenne peppers that crow on the mother plant will look the same as the Cayenne peppers it always grows, but the seeds inside will be sold as "Hybrid F1 Cayepeño" seeds.

 

If you grow out these "Hybrid F1 Cayepeño" seeds, you'll get a pretty consistent hybrid F1 pepper (as long as both the father and mother are stable), but the seeds inside are now F2, and will not grow true.

 

Anyhow, that's what I've thought.
