Looks like you solved the pepper maggot issue!  Congrats!  Pods look great!


#1571971 Cross Question

Posted by bpiela on 29 July 2018 - 10:36 PM

A couple of years ago, I grew a Mustard Hab plant next to a bunch of frutescens pepper plants.  I had saved seeds from a couple of pods from the Mustard Hab plant.  This year I grew a few seeds out and some of the plants look like Mustard Habs but one plant is a frutescens.  The pods are growing up, are red and just come off the plant just like a tabasco.  Is it possible that a cross would show frutescens traits when the Habanero is the mother plant?

Bottom left those are Helix Nebulas.  They are one of the Chinese Space Chiles.

So, I made brine according to instructions, simmering the water/vinegar/salt/sugar mix.  I sterilized my bottle, cut up a bunch of mixed jalapeno slices, put into sterilized jar, then covered with brine.  Once it cooled down a bit, I moved it to the fridge.  Here is a pic.  I will put in other vegetables at a later time.

For historical purposes, I am posting pics of the whole garden.  There are 7 rows of plants.


First row as I enter the garden are the frutescens and some oddball crosses.  You can see the tabasco with many pods growing upwards.  Other than that, not a ton of pods in this row as of yet.



Second row in is all chinense.  In the front is a Tshololo Orange that has the purple leaves.  It is a strong plant and will produce a bunch of pods.



Third row is all chinense.  In the middle of the row on the right is a Beni Highlands with light colored leaves.  Not a tall plant. 



Fourth row is all chinense.  Towards the back of the row are my Big Mamas.  Those plants are big.



Fifth row is the first row of annuums.  Front right you can see the thai peppers and in the back on the right grow some jalapenos.



Sixth row is the second row of annuums.  You can see the Super Chili's on the right, which are right across from some Ammazzos.  In front of the Super Chili's are those cool purple peppers I got the seeds from the Korean BBQ place near me.



Seventh and last row is the baccatums.  You cannot see them from this pic, but there are a bunch of pods growing here.

Super Chile-esque plant from the local Korean BBQ store is looking cool.

Antep Aci Dolma look great.



Space Chili, Total Eclipse.  Very large.

Well done Ben!


That second pod from the left looks a lot like a Jimmy Nardello.


Yeah, that is the Relleno from seeds I purchased from Reimers.  It has a little heat to it as well...
