Not a Thunder Mountain Longhorn

02 April 2019 - 12:34 PM

Hey guys,

 

I haven't been very active here lately, life got in the way. I am growing peppers of course! I came back to share some pictures of these awesome pepper plants with you.

As the title says they're supposed to be Thunder Mountain Longhorns, but they look far from it. I planted four seeds, two of which turned out normal and two turned out this way.

 

The leaves are mottled and variegated. Some anthocyanin here and there. It looks pretty awesome, but I have no idea where it got these genes from. The only variegated pepper I've grown is the Fish pepper, and that was back in 2016. I think I grew some TML that season and saved some OP seeds. But even if that was the case, it wouldn't explain the purple hue.

 

I tried to add pictures in the normal way but the forum doesn't allow me to use imgur for some reason. I also couldn't use the forums own system because my file sizes were too big. So I added them to a Google Photos collage, and here is the link:

Sorry about that. 

 

I'll try to post some updates every few weeks.

 

Best peppers for powders?

02 October 2018 - 12:30 PM

Hello my friends,

 

What are, in your opinion, the tastiest peppers to make powders from? And what do you use them in?

 

I am looking to expand my spice rack a bit, and until now I've just powdered what I had. For next season I'd like to really grow a few varieties for the sole purpose of making delicious powders.

 

I have a smoker so anything is possible.

 

Fire away!


A great new growdown idea

01 September 2018 - 01:16 PM

Hey guys!

 

I've thought of a nice little competition for the coming season. Let's see who has the longest! So whip 'em out boys, unzip those zippers. We measure from the base to the tip. The calyx counts, but the peduncle doesn't. Yes, of course I'm talking about peppers, you pervert. I mean, everyone stores their peppers in a ziploc, right? 

 

All joking aside; let's see who can grow the longest Thunder Mountain Longhorn! Who's in?


Dulce Sol heat?!

29 August 2018 - 11:39 AM

Hi guys,

 

I'm growing the Dulce Sol from pepperlovers.com. It's a beautiful pepper, and I love the way it looks. On the website they describe the pepper as having no or no noticeable heat, but the pods I've picked are not heatless at all. I almost ruined my GF's meal by telling her to add it because it had no heat. Good thing I decided to eat a piece before adding it! 

 

Is it maybe an unstable strain? How are your experiences with it?

 

 

 

 

Another delicious created by us at pepperlover.com. This bright yellow beauty can be classified as sweet with low/no noticeable heat. A great, clean, crunchy, and sweet capsicum baccatum flavor with a remarkable citrus like flavor. Very productive variety, grown like a small low bush which makes it great for pots or hanging baskets.   

 


Save a broken branch?

Hey guys,

Has any of you ever tried to save a broken-off branch? The wind damaged one of my plants and a big branch broke off. It had loads of unripe peppers too.
