    pests (prehensile) Soapy Pepper Spray for aphids/white flies

    I've had a huge problem with whitefly here in the Caribbean this summer. It seems like I'm beginning to win the battle, but the plants have taken their fair share of damage. I have been using a mix of dish detergent, alcohol, and water. Initially I made the mix quite weak, but gradually...

    After another google search I found this page which throws some light on it, but I am still a little confused... http://www.chillisgalore.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9667

    Roquito Peppers

    So I used to live in London UK, and used to be quite a regular customer of Dominos Pizza. Over the years they had some pretty cool peppers on some of their pizzas - my favourites were the ones that were hot and sweet at the same time. I can specifically remember they used "Roquito" peppers for a...

    First Chocolate Habanero Hook

    So amusingly, what I thought were my first Chocolate Habanero hooks turned out to be some erroneous weed that sprouted early and grew very quick. I thought the sprouts looked strange, as the cotyledons were so much more rounded than any that I had germinated before. I just put this down to them...

    First Chocolate Habanero Hook

    I have been buying pods from a local farmer, and at least one of them was bright red. It seems to be turning more of a chocolate colour in the fridge now tho. It's a bit weird cos I have had other unripe ones from him which were green when i got them and then turned brown without ever going...

    First Chocolate Habanero Hook

    Haha yeah chuffed is a bit of an "Englishism"... as in "Chuffed to bits". I kinda wrote it without thinking and forgot that it is not an international term. And "Butchers" is a great bit of cockney Rhyming Slang - the full expression is "A butcher's look". Don't ask me where that came from tho...

    First Chocolate Habanero Hook

    So as the title suggests it seems like my first Chocolate Habanero has sprouted today. I know most people might not find that newsworthy, but I have been struggling to germinate these bad-boys in tissue paper so far. This time i sowed some directly into my new (lighter) soil mix in polystyrene...

    Hello from Cabarete, Dominican Republic

    Thanks buddy. TBH I only found some of them fresh in the supermarket. The Big Suns I actually bought as seeds during an outing to the local city, and the Chocolate Hab pods were gifted to my by a local farm. I am having mixed results so far with the seeds harvested by me from acquired pods. I...

    Hello from Cabarete, Dominican Republic

    I taught kitesurfing in St Kilda so I always lived around St Kilda, Elwood, and Port Melbourne. I loved living there - such a great city. I wasn't into growing back then but I guess with Melbourne's crazy weather it would be hard to do any serious growing without a good greenhouse where u can...

    Hello from Cabarete, Dominican Republic

    Hey guys I am new to growing chilis and even newer to the forum. I guess I am in a pretty enviable position - growing chilis in the caribbean, but I still have plenty to learn. I am on a very small budget, but I am blessed with an awesome climate for growing so here's to lots of fresh hot chili...
