#1036371 Identifying wild peppers from a jungle in Kerala, India

Posted by DudeThtsBad on 09 August 2014 - 02:44 PM

Great finds and I`m very jealous you got to visit Kerala!!!

 

Variety #3 is definitely a C.frutescens. There is a widely used C.frutescens in and around Kerala and I`m growing it this year from pods taken from a market there.

Variety #1 looks to me like a C.annuum. The calyx and flower seem to me to fall within C.annuum, but I am not 100% certain.

 

Variety #2 is very interesting indeed. I`m temped to say C.frutescens because of the calyx, but it may be another annuum. I`m really not sure at all about this one. 

 

Thank you! It was very beautiful and the people there were all so friendly!

 

Yes, I agree with #3 it looks exactly like the one on your post!

 

Thank you for the help, should help point me in the right direction! :]




#1036340 Identifying wild peppers from a jungle in Kerala, India

Posted by DudeThtsBad on 09 August 2014 - 01:58 PM

Hello everyone! I have just returned home from an amazing trip to India! 

While following some locals to a river in Kerala, I came across a few peppers plants growing maybe 100 feet from the river! 

There seemed to be three different varieties growing!

I harvested as many ripe ones as possible from each plant for seed collecting, but unfortunately there were only one or two on each plant :/

I took pictures of pods/flowers in hope that somebody could help identify them!

Here are the pictures!

#949008 Tio = Aji Cereza?

Posted by DudeThtsBad on 08 February 2014 - 04:07 PM

I just received seeds direct from Lima, Peru (as have a number of others). There are 2 different types labelled Aji Cerezo 1 and Aji Cerezo 2. How`s that for muddying the waters???

I really and thinking and hoping that the mouse escaped out of my garage, it seems like everything has been pretty still and quiet these past 2-3 days..
I'm scared to move plants back into there and to take out the traps though..
As for the plants that got eaten.. I'm hoping that at least some of them will come back and live again!

That thing is trolling you hard. In the end you'll find out its some kind of wierdo bird and your traps are useless!


I saw the mouse today though!
It was too fast, I couldn't kill it!
It killed like 30+ of my baby plants :[

You may need to secure the perimeter with razor wire and or an electric fence. I’ve been using glue traps placed inside of 4” x 3 ft length PVC pipe to combat our squire problem. The local squire population outnumbers the cats at least 3:1. Many neighborhood cats have not come home. Dogs seem to be ineffective at trimming their numbers as well.

I feel your pain brother!!

daamn, that sounds intense..
I'm going to get myself glue traps..
my dog hasn't done anything D:

If you're losing them that quickly, set up a video camera and leave for another couple hours, see for yourself what's causing it.


Bloody squires!

Hey Dude...here's a thought...

Do you have any crickets/grasshoppers near where you live? They seem to explode in hot & dry conditions (which I think you've been having?), and I think I read that some places in Texas are having a hard time with them this year. Our grasshoppers usually explode in August - and what they've done to some of my plants in the past is sickening! They're fast too! And munch right down to the nubs like in that pic. They're evil. :)


that sounds terrible D:
but I'm pretty positive mine is a rodent :/
