Why are my peppers turning black/purple

02 November 2018 - 03:57 PM

Hi,

 

I am growing 2 ghost pepper plants which did really well.

I got good production out of them and beautiful red pods.

 

Temperatures dropped here to low 40s (day temperatures are in upper 60s) and I am still saving the plants (using covers at night) because I still have good number of pods on them.

I noticed that the pods are having black/purple lines on them and they are not ripening.

 

Is there any issue or is it because of the temperature conditions?

How can I get these to ripen?

 

Please help.

When to bring peppers indoors

10 October 2018 - 12:16 PM

First year of growing peppers and So far I love it.

My ghost pepper plants are still going strong with lot of new buds and flowers. I am not sure if they will see the light.

 

Temperatures are going to drop to low 40s in coming weeks.Attached File  temp.JPG   53.77KB   28 downloads

 

So my questions:

1. When should I bring the peppers indoors? TIll what temperatures can the plants survive outdoors(They are in self watering pots which are not easy to move)?

2. I am planning to overwinter at least one of them. So should I go ahead and prune the plant even when there are unripe pods?

 

Please help.
