#1587408 Growdown Throwdown 2018 Yellow Brain Strain!

Posted by U)<now on 14 October 2018 - 06:32 PM

Looks like we'll be right behind you guys. We just dodged a hard frost last night with overnight lows around 38 degrees, and by Sunday they're predicting a solid week of nights in the upper 20s. I hear the fat lady winding up for her aria here boys and girls... [emoji6]

Yep, that same night I posted that, we got a freeze and it killed everything I had outside. Lucky I brought those plants into the garage.

Guess I will drag my plant into the garage tonight. Supposed to snow here tomorrow

I picked the last bucket off mine ripe or not 2 days ago and dragged about 10 nice plants into the garage also. Got down to 32F here last night.

A few jars are missing, but I made 56 pints of salsa! 4 batches (a batch yeilds 12 to 14 pints) ranging in heat from Jalapeno (12 pods for a batch) to a Reaper batch with 36 reapers for 12 pints :rofl: average of 3 reapers per pint... It's fricken :fire:

Think it's the same as tomatoes, too much water that causes the pods to grow faster than the skin can handle. I think in peppers it is more likely when the pods are ripe/overripe...and then they get too much water. I've never seen green pods split but have seen that with green tomatoes.

I figured it was water. It did rain a lot a few weeks ago when most were ripening so that makes sense. Thanks! Looks like you had an awesome season!

We just went from 90 to 60 degrees pretty much overnight. I got a really decent harvest over this weekend, some split pods as I expected, but good pull overall. Supposed to get back in the 80s next week. It's looking more and more like this year will end up with one massive haul in about 3 weeks. Last time I grew this many plants it was a 5 gallon bucket of pods every week starting first week of August, so I'm behind quite a bit with that as the standard. Good thing tho since I don't know what I'd do with them other than give them away.

What is the cause of the split pods? I had some this season too, mainly only the smoother varieties and yellow varieties.

I never did weigh in yet, and already dehydrated this batch. Couldn't find my scale. So, here's a pic of my first harvest, just done last week. That's a large ziplock bag for size reference.

Some reapers from last year's Open Pollinated seeds that originally came from THSC in late 2016.

Might be crossed with a reaper, I had one seed left from buckeye peppers. A few of the early pods I had grew tails but not long like those

This is the only one with a tail like that. The rest are all pretty normal looking.
