In Topic: Ripe peppers rotting on inside?

18 September 2018 - 06:43 PM

Internal rot normally starts when fungi infect the flowers or young fruit. These latent infections lie dormant as the fruit develops. Once the fruit starts to ripen, the disease develops rapidly, leaving no sign of the disease on the outside of the fruit.

The disease does not move from fruit to fruit but disease can be transmitted by seed. Hot water treatments are effective at controlling all the organisms known to cause this disease.

I hope this helps.

Cheers

 

you can use a foliar with a 0.05% v/v plant safe surfactant and a compost tea during flowering to help prevent this. I've had good success with a product called inocucor, it also seems to help with pod setting during less than ideal conditions.

Looks like a Devil's Tongue Yellow to me..

 

Except its deep orange like a habanero and not yellow? this is the pheno from their website. my pods are not thick walled, they are much more symmetrical and they are a lot more bumpy almost like the skin on a brain strain (which is admittedly hard to capture well on my camera).

In Topic: I have wasps/yellow jackets in my plants

21 August 2018 - 03:01 PM

I'll be honest guys, I'm too afraid to harvest my peppers because of these jerks I don't like getting stung, and I'd rather them not be there. I know they pollinate the plants (not as efficiently as bees though, which I would GLADLY welcome), but they haven't been here long and our peppers have been bountiful before they crashed the party. 

 

I have a strong hatred for these pests, and want them gone. I have not noticed any caterpillars in our beds, only tiny ants and what I think are sting bugs. 

 

 

 

there isn't anything specific that kills wasps without preserving beneficial insects. so...suck it up and be careful. maybe put some wasp traps near your plants? its irrational and over-reactive fears that leads consumers to dump pesticides around their houses and in their gardens. not to mention individual consumers tend to not follow label directions. imagine all of your neighbors are spraying their lawns and gardens... combined that equals a lot of pollution and off target effects. these pesticides wash into rivers and streams and do significant damage to the small organism food webs in rivers, streams, lakes, estuaries. all so someone can keep their precious lawns or roses alive the lazy way. so please try to take the least harmful path and if you've decided to spray realize that you are spraying your FOOD prior to harvest which I don't think is ever recommended. pyrethrins are going to be less harmful and persistent than something like bayer 3 in 1 but they still require radiation from the sunlight over days to weeks to break down.

most of my peppers were pollinated by yellow jackets this year. i say keep them as long as they arent getting agressive on you
