#1593112 Annuum for the grill?

Posted by willard3 on 12 November 2018 - 05:42 PM

I don't know this chile, but many annuumns go well on the grill.

 

Chilacas and poblanos are good on a grill and they aren't too picante




#1586682 Can you prune roots in a hydroponics situation?

Posted by willard3 on 11 October 2018 - 07:17 AM

You can prune chiles pretty much as you want, it's hard to kill a chile.

 

This is a tepin I pruned, put it back in aeroponics and had fruit soon.

I'd like to see you make a chipolte sauce from "fresh" peppers. :lol:

 

Fresh is not always best. Mexicans use lots of dried peppers in their salsas, dishes, and moles.

 

 

You are limiting yourself when you restrict yourself to fresh, with the mindset of "fresh is better."

 

 

Open you mind to the dried. :D

 

 

The first bins next to the door in the Mercado in Méjico are dried chiles and these are very large bins.  Probably more common in Mejican cuisine than fresh, at least in the Bajío.

#1585730 green or red? Jalpenos... what do you do?

Posted by willard3 on 06 October 2018 - 07:23 AM

Depends uopn what you are cooking. Shooters are usually green though I have had them red. Both red and green are used in salsa fresca.

 

Red ones sell  for a higher price in Méjico.

#1579830 Root Pruning?

Posted by willard3 on 03 September 2018 - 08:50 PM

You can prune chiles pretty extensively if you prune both root and branch.

 

This pea chile was making fruit soon after  the pruning.

If you or someone you know is going to Méjico, have them pick up some landraces in the mercado. The ones I have grown out are quite different than what's available in the US.

It's a fool's errand to try to identify a chile without fotos of fruit and flowers.

If you find yourself in Querétaro, Méjico, look around. There are acres and acres of greenhouses around the city.

 

This in a climate with plenty of sun, good temperatures and plenty of water outside.

 

They're using greenhouses for a reason.
