Alex_K - 2021/2022

Hi! I'm Alex from Brazil!

Some old members might remember me... I make some seeds exchange here back in 2009.
Had about 40 pepper plants but after the end of the season they suffered from massive whiteflies attack and I lost mostly of them... frustrated I gave up on growing peppers plants but this year I decided to start again I bought seeds from TexasHotPepper, HRSeeds and MK hope this time to be successful.

Yeah my english is quite bad but I hope can understand each other!!! :oops:

For now my list is:

(C. chinense)

Puma
Habanada
Naga BBG7 Orange
Big Olive Mama
Big Mustard Mama (gift)
Jays X Purple
PDN X Bonda Ma Jacques (White)
BTR Scorpion
Jays Peach Ghost Scorpion
Bleeding Borg 9
Papa Joes Scotch Bonnet
KS Lemon Starrburst
Pimenta da Neyde
Butch T X 7 Pod Jonah Gold

(C. annuum)

Murasaki Purple
Lesya
Thai Hot
Buena Mulata
Thunder Mountain Longhorn

(C. baccatum)

Aji Amarillo
Aji Bodysnatcher
Sugar Rush Peach

(C. rhomboideum)
C. rhomboideum (My precious! :lol:)

Good luck for everyone!!!

It's the same in Mexico. Same pepper has different names or different peppers have the same name in adjacent regions. Sometimes a name covers various varieties. I had a variety called pico de paloma but every time I come accross it on a market, the peppers look different πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

It seems that Brazil and Mexico have a lot in common, right? πŸ‡§πŸ‡·πŸ‡²πŸ‡½

@Alex_K -Hey, buddy, @Pr0digal_son shared a great resource
with me for identifying and understanding capsicum species.
Lots of dense genetic and botanical science stuff, but the charts,
discussions, and conclusions are very informative if you are
interested in those things. I would love to travel in your part
of the world.


I definitely will read the article, it will be great to increase my knowledge about the genetics of peppers. πŸ‘

Thanks Paul!

It's time to transplant the peppers to the definitive container I hope I don't kill any of them in the process! πŸ˜…
Unfortunately BTR Scorpion, Big Mustard Mama and Buena Mulata didn't germinate, I'll try one more time as I still have some seeds! The other varieties I sowed later, so they are still too small for the definitive transplant.

Suffered a lot with the scorch sun! β˜€οΈ

I don't know what I did wrong, the Thai Hot and Thunder Mountain Longhorn (C. annuum) are producing buds too early I will remove them to not compromise the plant's growth but anyone have idea why this happen? 😦
I'm not using any type of fertilizer, just soil for seedlings.

I usually don't remove buds and let the plant decide instead. If it's really too early, flowers will be aborted.

I believe premature flowering and fruit-set can be related to a stressful situation for the plant. This can be anything from too little growing space to drought. Plant stress, however, can affect seed quality and "stress" is passed on to the progeny (auxin involvement?). I read it a while ago and the details are not fresh anymore, but basically it's not a good idea to save seeds from a heavily stressed plant because it will affect the quality of the seedlings. Remember that life aims for survival, and that one strategy involves the shortening of the reproductive cycle. Flies, aphids and tardigrades are more likely to survive an apocalyptic event then elephants or the Queen of the Andes.

Hey, @Alex_K. Pot-ups look great, ready to roll in that warm
Brazilian sun! Curious to know what is the source for your
PdN x Bonda Ma Jacques. Forum member @Trippa produced
a PdN x BMJ cross which we eventually called Trippaul Threat
'White Lightening'. Last season was the F9 version. A second
iteration was started from some of the original seeds from the
F1 a few seasons back, and we call that one Trippaul Threat v2.
There were five colors from that in the F2 generation, red, peach,
golden, orange and yellow. You can find out all about it in this thread:

https://thehotpepper.com/threads/trippaul-threat-pdn-x-bmj-community-grow.64065/

Looking forward to seeing how it does down in your area.

BTW +1 @ahayastani - let the plant decide what to do about the
flowers. If you are itching to pinch, try pinching alternate nodes
starting with the first node after the initial fork. I had very good
luck with that one of the Trippaul Threat indoor grows in 2018.

Paul, Dieter Thanks!

I will follow your suggestions and I will not remove the buds! Probably they suffered stress from too much sun and ablaze temperatures here! πŸ‘

I bought the seeds of PDN X Bonda Ma Jacques (White) from "Texas Hot Peppers" I think he is a member of the forum too.
The Pimenta da Neyde's genetics seem to have manifested in the purple/black leaves of this cross, let's wait for the pods... I hope something interesting comes out! πŸ™‚
 
What city in S.P. do you live in. I traveled 1500 km of that state. From Guarulhos down the Dutra to Lorena,south to Paraty and back down 101 to Sao Paulo and everything on that mountain range inbetween the two highways. Some of the mountains north of the Dutra also. Amazing country.

Hi John!

I live in the city of Americana which is in the metropolitan region of Campinas, the second largest after the metropolitan region of SΓ£o Paulo where Guarulho is part, it is approximately 141km from Guarulhos, Paraty is really a nice and calm city with historic architecture, interesting that you started your trip in SΓ£o Paulo as most tourists start in Rio I'm curious you came to Brazil just for tourism?


Historical fact (I promise it won't be boring! LOL):

I think the name of the city where I live sounds familiar doesn't it? The name "Americana" came from a group of Confederates who took refuge here after the civil war, the first to arrive was Colonel William Hutchinson Norris.
As a result of this group of North Americans who lived here and cultivated the land, the name "Americana" was given to the city.
Now the city has around 242 thousand inhabitants and is practically 90% urbanized.

Happy New Year to you and your family, as well, Alex!
 
Happy New Year Alex. You'll be snacking these peppers before you know it

Yeah are mild varieties is easy to digest nothing like a trinidad scorpion hehe! πŸ˜€

Happy New Year Dieter!

Hi Alex ...Feliz Ano Novo...hope it's much better than '21.

PM me your address & I'll have it when I get seeds ready to mail to BRAZIL...
Sandy

Thank you very much Sandy!
I send a PM...

Happy New Year! Feliz Ano Novo!
 
Very voluptuous pod, @Alex_K!

Is that a Euro in the pic? I don't
even know what the Brazilian
currency is.

I wish it were euro! πŸ˜… at the current price the currency here don't worth much... Anyway...
Brazil use "Real" as currency, the size of coin 1 Real is a little bigger than 2 Euro coin...

We had a mexican guy at work here in belgium, he showed me those "fake euro coins" and told me he managed to pay with them here as if they were real euros 😁

If you don't look carefully you won't notice the difference... even the typefont looks the same...
