Alex_K - 2022/2023 - Growing peppers in Brazil!

I think this season I will become a pepper plant hoarder as I received over 100 different varieties from my brother and ended up planting them all, I honestly don't know how I will accommodate so many plants!
My original plan for this season was the wild species, the native varieties from Brazil and a few import varieties that I found very interesting, however, now with over 100 imported varieties I think my plans have changed...
It's already spring here in Brazil and some varieties that I sowed in March, went through the winter and are already with their first pods while others that I sowed in August are still in their initial stages of growth.
I hope I don't have any major problems this season, one variety or another will surely die on the way but it's part of learning process right!?

Wish me luck! 🙂

My list this season:


The wilds:


Thanks to @Wiriwiri for submitting some of the species! It has been very hard to acquire them since few online stores have them and those that do unfortunately do not ship to Brazil... These are the ones I got for this season.

Native from Brazil:

I decided to add Brazilian varieties this season, from the most common to those that are quite obscure and cultivated only by indigenous people or in a certain community/region.
Although there are many varieties here, there is no interest from universities or organizations in preserving or even registering them, the public/private sectors that research Capsicum varieties generally direct their studies only to the improvement of commercial varieties to resist pests or to increase the yield Heirloom varieties end up being left out.
These are the varieties that I managed to obtain... Being a country of continental dimensions, there are many other varieties that I probably will never know.

Import varieties:

The vast majority were given by my brother... Will I be able to grow all these varieties? Probably not! But I'll try to grow as much as I can, I'm thinking of rotating the varieties discarding the ones that have already produced to make room for those that haven't yet, I think that's what I can do...

Quite busy lately, I hope to update this thread more often!!! 🙄
 
Let's start!

These are the seedlings that I started in July and August and they need to be transferred to their permanent container urgently, but they are so many that I get tired just thinking about it! 😵‍💫

Sorry for the bad quality of the photos, I was in a hurry because of the rain that was coming!😅
 
These varieties I sowed in January so they are already producing... I put the photos in chronological order, the first ones when they were still small and the last ones as they are currently.


D'Espelette

Seems to be used dehydrated, mild variety similar to paprika.

Jalapeño Lemon Special

Originally this jalapeno was developed by a Mexican farmer in Texas and it seems to be a little hotter than the jalapeno we all know

Apocalypse Red

A very hot variety, my plant is producing pods of different shapes some longer and others shorter. Looking at the pods you can get an idea of how hot it is! :onfire:

Capezzoli di Scimmia aka. "Monkey Nipple"

It's a heavy producer of little yellow pods, not much about the heat or taste but more about looking and production

Some Brazilians varieties...

This is the "Biquinho" well know Brazilian pepper with almost nothing, if having any heat, very popular here in Brazil and also in other countries, being a C. chinense it is aromatic in addition to having ornamental value due to its compact size and abundant production the name "Biquinho" translate to "little beak" for obvious reason!
The consumption of hot peppers is not unanimous throughout Brazil, being concentrated in the north and northeast regions and in the states of Minas Gerais and Goiás, in the rest of country the consumption of hot varieties are low.
Because it has no heat the Biquinho pepper, become popular throughout the country and it is used in several ways, pickled it is used in cocktails, salads or garnish, fresh it is used in several ways such as in rice, beans, soups and stews.
This season I'm growing the yellow variety and the recently released "salmon" which I think would be the "peach" color in english.
