    There will be a few more weeks with decent weather coming for sure. We often get a period of nasty weather just before fall around here. It's like nature is telling the plants that shit is about to come and they best get their things sorted!

    The weathergods decided that the water shortage build up in the past 6 months had to be compensated in just 2 weeks... weather has been horrible around here lately. We even had daytime temps around 10C and we also had the first nighttime frost allready. Most peppers are still doing fine only the...

    The adjuma remains my favorite chinense so far. No other chinense i tried had such a great taste and smell. The heat might be a bit less than the bmj but they are still very hot. The bmj also has a more nasty burn (facemelter) whereas the adjuma has a more lingering back of the throat heat...

    The most of them started riping allready so they will not be lost. Also i have more plants and they sure are productive. The bmj are very brittle plants anyway with long hanging branches that are not able to carry the load of pods they produce. Normally i give chinense only one support stick but...

    Took some time contemplating how many shades of blue there are in the Ionian sea... Peppers were left to fend for themselves for a while supported by a newly installed drip system ofcourse. Came back to a whole bunch of colors in the garden, back to pepper processing it is! And some more...

    This weeks harvest packed and ready for the freezer Bahamian goat Habanero red Bonda ma jacques Adjuma Adjuma that crossed with the habanero red last year... had 2 plants that surprisingly turned out red instead of yellow. Only chinense present last year was the habanero red, so must be...

    That's too bad! They sure are nice plants and good looking pods too. I still have a rio hualaga going that started to set fruits, hoping this plant will give me some nice and tasty pods! I might give the red ones a shot next year, i've seen them in the collection of semillas.

    Picked one of the rocoto mini choco today. Plants are loaded with dark brown pods, but since i never grew a pubescens before i haven't got a clue when to harvest them. They don't seem to color up any more but are still quite hard to the touch. This pod tasted quite bland and greenish. It was...

    There is nothing wrong with them, just a little tanning going on. The plant reacts to the sun exposure by making some anthocyanin on the exposed side of the fruit. They will ripen just fine!

    2022 - too early to get started...

    Capsaicin can cause bloodpressure drop and the irritation on your stomach could have led to some postprandial hypotension, that together with the heat maybe made your brain reset for a moment? I ate 2 big whole habanero red last year that made me lie on the floor gasping for air and drowning in...
