    Black Pearl Pepper

    Mine had a whole range of colors when I grew them also. I thought it was just the plant. Mine grow like weeds and are interesting the second year beacuse I had a few green pearls in there with the seeds I saved. Light makes a big difference to the color of the plants.

    Ate ripe Naga Morich/long story....

    I tried one of mine also. It was hot, and I have to admit I couldn't swallow it, but rolling on the floor moaning? Thats a tad much.

    Black Pearl Pepper

    I grew them last year. They are a very beautiful plant and the seeds generally come back true. However they are not worth anything to eat, they are the only pepper I ever ate that felt like the skin was being pulled off my tounge and no benefit of taste to go along with it.

    Big Jim 2007 competition

    Same here. I'm probably out, unless my new seeds get going here soon. Those that didn't get eaten by a snail attack, got laid on by my dog who broke through the fence into my garden. Oh well, I am trying again here.

    Cut 'em back! Cut 'em back! Waaaaaayyyyy back!

    When I overwinter, I cut back to about 12 inches. The plants I leave outside and cover, I don't until I see where the new growth is coming in the spring. My pequin I usually cut back to about 12-14 inches, and yet in the summer it grows, with minimal care, in a whiskey keg with four year old...

    How would peppers do in a ScrOG?

    I don't see why it won't work. Peppers respond to training and the more light the better. I would be interested in seeing what happens.

    Mint as an Aphid and other insect detterent?

    I will just take them over to the sink and spray them off every so often. It works well enough. It is not a total fix, but if done regularly will keep them under control.

    Pepper cuttings

    I have 2 huge pepper plants, a goat weed and a devil's tongue that are just too big to bring in. So I am thinking of taking cuttings of them to root inside for next year. What is the best way to do this?

  18. D reliable?

    The fatalii is the only plant I have had for two years that has for some reason just turned brown and died each summer. No warning, no nothing just went limp and died two years in a row.

    Since many of you do much more of this than I do, what is the best way to overwinter a pepper plant? I have overwintered a few, mostly my pequin and my tepin, but they always get very ill looking before they get put outside again in the spring. This year I have my Nagas, and I was wondering...
