    breeding Pepper crossing question

    Btw if anyone want seeds of these crosses, let me know: Grenada Seasoning x Pérola Iaranja (F1 was red + medium-sized pointy shaped + hot; but want to stabilize very-small pea-sized shaped +'not-hot' [color doesn't matter to me, but i usually like yellow fruit more]) or Grenada Seasoning x...

    breeding Pepper crossing question

    yeh the success looks like it was about 53% (on the crosses that I did on purpose, 6 out of the 12 in the video and one GrenadaSeasoning x BiquinhoYellow so 7/13). I still did some good practices like using unopened flowers on both the providing and receiving flowers. and I enclosed each flower...

    breeding Pepper crossing question

    This one was label Aji Charapita (Iquitos variation), but I also had an Aji Charapita Red variation in the same tray. I am a bit doubtful I labeled wrong (or again doubtful but Charapita seeds are very small so maybe a Red seed switched locations in the seed tray after spraying with water). I...

    Here are pics of the parents for people unfamiliar with them : Grenada Seasoning (pic off internet): Pérola Iaranja (2 of my pics last summer to show the regular salmon vs more unusual red variation): Can see the colors a bit better at the end of fall/winter hehe:

    breeding Pepper crossing question

    Gotcha, thanks for the info! Yeh the parents for this cross i think were pretty much very established named peppers (GrenadaSeasoning x Pérola Iaranja). I've grown the former with my own seeds for years. I grew a few Pérola Iaranja last year... I will say one of the 4 P.I.'s was red vs usual...

    breeding Pepper crossing question

    Just curious, on this first F1 generation of the pepper I crossed last year, I got many plants that look different than either of the 2 peppers crossed from last year (different shape. different color, different heat... which is what i expected), but this generation looks similar to each other...

    breeding Pepper crossing question

Only unusual color i have available right now to cross with is 'Naga Smokey Rainbow' (but its not really variegated like those other ones at the bottom of the...

    breeding Pepper crossing question

    Cool, thanks for the info. I'll check it out I'll post more pics in a couple weeks once they all become ripe and I'm more sure they crossed. Here is my first pepper to ripen this year this week that Im sure crossed (as they dont have the shape of BY, kinda a more medium size. smaller than GS...

    breeding Pepper crossing question

    Btw I have 2 'not-hot' pepper varieties (imagine Trinidad-Perfume/Aji Dulce/etc type peppers), both are yellow that I crossed last year and the 1 resulting F1 plant I got this year from them is also not-hot and yellow (although a different shape). I wonder for next year's F2 generation, what are...

    breeding Pepper crossing question

    Hey @CaneDog... May have a followup question... so if 'NG' means "Normal Germination" and 'HF' is "Highly Fertile"... I guess 'NG' is like 90-100% of the seeds will probably germinate normally. and what is 'HF' considered, like 75-90% normal germination? and 'PF' is pretend 0%-75%? Just...

    breeding Pepper crossing question

    Hey all, I wanted to get into pepper crossing this year. I kinda did last year but didn't emasculate the receiving flowers at all, so left it up to chance to see if they would pollinate by brushing the flower I wanted to use as my 'male' and then putting a very small seed ziplock plastic around...

    pests netting for peppers to protect against things eating pods

    I have bird netting, I wasnt sure if that was too large for them to poke through the squares. I'll try it out unless anyone else has another suggestion for finer mesh.

    pests netting for peppers to protect against things eating pods

    Hey all, any product suggestions for mesh/netting (or any other products?) that works for protecting pods from getting eaten? Any links to click on and buy are welcome :), esp amazon.

    Hey @wiriwifi, That was the place with ~$30 shipping :). I'd have to buy 6 plants + shipping = $70. So I looking for another source for now. Trying to convince my sister to drive down there from Asheville NC and then ship to me, but she is busy with her life/kids so she probably cannot get. I...

    wanted Looking for Aji Chaparita

    Just wanted to add, Aji Charapiita is one of my favs. I also like Wild Brazil as well in the 'small' hot pepper category which has very-hot lingering habanero heat... while Aji Charapita is a very 'fast' heat. Like I can put 10 Charapita's in a sandwich and enjoy it; while i could only handle 1...

    Hey all, I was a little late ordering plants this year and forgot to get Grenada Seasoning (I have seeds of G.S. but would prefer just to get a large plant from a greenhouse grower :) ). Anyone have extra plants to sell? Note: I found one online seller for Grenada, but the shipping is a bit...

    Bahamian Goat Pepper

    Hey @GA Growhead, Did these white-bullet/goat hybrids come out true this year? I just tried the original hab form today, really delicious so curious how the smaller (and probably more prolific?) bullet form turned out for you.
