Why are my peppers turning black/purple

02 November 2018 - 03:57 PM



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   21 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.


Color of Peppers

05 August 2018 - 01:25 PM

This is my 1st year growing peppers and started with Bhuts. Plants are growing good and had my 1st harvest recently.

I want to make powder out of those and since I dont have a dehydrator, I thought I would dry the pods in sun.

Problem is, I see that peppers are changing color (more like loosing color) when I try to dry them.

I have cut and harvest seeds from couple of pods and those peppers dried fine (top left)

So question is, is this normal? Or have I committed any rookie mistake?

For those who want to jump on instantpot craze, watch out for the deal on instantpot during amazon prime day (starting from today). If last year's prime day is any indication, there will definetly be a deal on their best seller. I will post the link as soon as I come across the deal.

It is totally worth it.
