Preferred time to pick

01 August 2018 - 08:25 PM

Is there a time of the day when peppers have the best flavor?
Are peppers better tasting when picked in the morning compared to picked in the afternoon or evening?

Scotch Bonnets?

30 July 2018 - 07:57 AM

These plants came in a 4 cell tray from a nursery. The tag says Scotch Bonnets. One of the cells had 2 plants growing in it, I left them together when I planted them.
The first picture has SB on the left and on the right is the mystery pepper. Attached File  IMG_0740.JPG   646.39KB   10 downloads
Picture 2 is another plant from the same tray. Attached File  IMG_0743.JPG   619.44KB   10 downloads
Please help ID the mystery peppers.

Tale of two bonnets

03 July 2018 - 04:06 PM

Back in May I purchased a four pack tray of red scotch bonnets. I planted 2 in my raised beds at home and 2 in containers at work. The 2 at home are putting out blooms that are white with purple edges. The 2 at work are putting out plain white flowers. So my question is has anybody had a similar experience? Does soil composition and or nutrients play a big part in flower color?

I found out about this variety after I had planted my garden this year. It’s on the list for next year.
Does anybody have any experience with this pepper? Any reviews?

Smoked pepper weight vs Fresh pepper weight ?

07 April 2018 - 10:16 AM

When figuring out salt requirements for a fermented chipotle type sauce, would it be better to use the weight of the peppers that I’m smoking ,before smoking or the weight post smoked? I figured using 4% salt.
