Loads of Naga morich and hot paper lantern pods, still many piles to come as they gradually ripen up.

Great season Chilidude .

Pity you have such a short season .Hope you get a few more ripe pods!

 

I will get plenty of ripe pods from the plants that are already inside, all i needed is for the c.chinense to ripen their pods for me to be able to do some hot sauce to the restaurant to get some of those growing expenses back. Made a new tomato based naga morich sauce for this restaurant and they seems to be pretty happy about it as they spice the foods they make with it. :P

Dang those plants got big this year. :)

 

Glad to see things are going well for you. 

 

Lots of color in there now!

 

 

Next year i am planning to put 8 plants to 26 litre air-pots, let's see how big will they end up next season. :P

Temperature is lowering fast and i had to save most of the c.chinense and moved them inside few weeks ago:

I will get plenty of Naga morich pods.

The C.baccatum inside the greenhouse will not have the time to ripen most of the pods even if i warm the greenhouse but this is life unfortinantly.

I bet you dont need to water these too often and you could create all sort of automated watering systems in these.

Limon looks quite a bit different than lemon drop

I have been planning next years grow list:

 

Hot paper lantern

Limon

Caribbean antillais

Habanero golden

Naga morich

 

I was planning to not top the c.chinense next year to see how will they grow and produce pods.

 

Aji golden

Aji norteno

Aji cito

Aji blondy

Aji fantasy

 

C.baccatum will be topped as usual as they are far too fast growing to not to be topped each year. I got all the seeds for the plants already so no need to buy some more.

 

The indoor growing of the plants wili be conducted with the usual growing methods and using the B'cuzz coco a+b fertilizer and ph adjusting of the water, i hope now the next year indoor growing will be more success than this year so-so indoor grow.

6-7 months from seed to ripe pods, sounds almost too good to be true and if that is even half true, i have to try one plant perhaps next season.

Looking SO good! Huge plants and lots of poddage, you must be super pleased. :) We can thank the weather gods for having been on our side this summer, as that complemented your hard work very nicely!

I have a feeling you could eat a chili a day for the next year and still not run out... :dance:

I am not that pleased with the results of those Lemon drop/pineapple plants, but that is what you get when you overcrowd the greenhouse with plants and they get less light than other plants, thus the result is way less pods that they usually produce. Perhaps next year i will finally learn to control my habit of growing too much plants with limited growing place.. :rolleyes:

 

I still got bunch of frozen pods in the freezer from the harvest of 2016, so with these pods i am about to get from this year's plants will last many years to come.

 

I am happy to report that the newer formula of b´cuzz  coco a+b is working good and i really do not have any negative things to say about this fertilizer other than it being a two part fertilizer, overall is is quite cheap to use and it works for chili growing.

Beautiful pods and plants.

Are you in a race against time to ripen them?

 

It is always race against time here, perhaps i got another good month to go before i will have to start worry about that ripening time. If things get really ugly i will move the c.chinense inside and the c.baccatum can stay inside the greenhouse till they die.

How is your pepper plant jungle doing these days up North, Chilidude? Are you swimming in pods by now? :) Hope you'll have plenty of time for ripening still before the cold comes in!

I got few pods alright, but i had too many plants inside the greenhouse that surely dropped down the overall pod production for all the plants and the Aji plants suffered the most, so next year 10 plants at max.

Both Naga morich plants are full of pods, so i will get plenty of them this season:

Even if i stuffed the greenhouse with way too many plants, i would say i might just get enough pods to get me by to the next season.
