#756290 Plant from ebay seeds

Posted by pepperdawg on 04 January 2013 - 08:44 PM

Not an expert, but too early to tell?...I had the same concerns (also ebay or amazon) and everything turned out fine.....but since then make some friends, make some trades (here) and have no worries....

PS - I'm sure experts (I am not) will pipe in saying what it really is..a Bhut/Butch/Scorpian/7Pot/uguncus/hybyrd stain xyz..but it looks like a pepper to me :)

Welcome to the best board!!!!

Ps its < 20 degrees(f) here with snow on the ground, so your sunny Perth pics warm me (and lots others) up!!!!

#712035 Time from green to harvest in New England?

Posted by pepperdawg on 30 September 2012 - 11:31 AM

I can't help you with the superhots... I haven't grown them yet, but next year...

I started my seeds between the middle and the end of February, planted outside the middle of April with a strategy for extending the season. My Annuums started blossoming before I planted out, so I pinched the blooms until the plants got at least a foot tall. They started setting pods the third week in May. Orange Habaneros started blossoming the middle of June. The Annuums started ripening the middle of July, and the Habs started ripening the end of July. Hope this helps

Thanks Stickman - Good to hear from someone just up the way.......Yah - my non supers all peaked a month or so ago - my cayennes are hangin in there, but past peak.....Scotch Bs are coming on now and Thais too.....

Drop me a PM - I'll get you some seeds after I harvest if I have some to spare....

#711511 Hi From CT

Hi all from CT.

Been into hot peppers forever, but this is my 1st year growing the super-hots......found this site....

Will try to get some pics up in a few days....

In my garden (proper) in 2012:

Thick Cayannes
Scotch Bonnets
Hot Thai
Habenaros (orange)

In pots:

Devils Tongue

a few of My Devil Tongues are starting to turn yellow in the past week, but Ghosts and 7-pots are nice and green, but no sign of turning......being in the North East, I have about a month of outdoor time left - my plan is to bring the pots in to the garage on frost./freeze nights.......will I make it? What triggers the fruit to turn to orange/red? Shorter days? Cold?

I love this stuff!!!!

I mostly dry (in dehydrator) and ground up with a little coffee grinder....and make various hot-sauces (never the same twice)
