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.

*There are disputes, more information is needed.

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!!! 🙄
This is the Bode pepper, C. chinense common in the northeast region and in the states of Minas Gerais and Goiás. "Bode" translates as "Goat", one of the explanations of the name is that the smell of pepper is intense as a goat! Despite its intense aroma, it is not very hot and is mainly used in chicken and fish stews, beans and pamonha salgada (Brazilian version of tamale).
The varieties below are those commonly found in markets, however I am already growing some regional varieties of this pepper that I purchased from a supplier in the state of Goiás, I hope they are different from the ones I already have.

Bode Yellow









Bode Red

I am so glad you've posted about the Boquinho - had some in a salad today and wondered what they were. Totally delicious with capsaicin taste but minimal heat. I was so tempted to take one apart and steal some of the seeds :lol:

It's a very productive and easy-to-grow variety, I recommend it for anyone who doesn't like hot peppers! 😀

I like that money shot of the two biquinho pickings!
Haha! Glad you liked it!👍
The temperature here in Brazil is so high that you can cook an egg on the asphalt and unlike me the pepper plants seem to be enjoying it and are producing well! 🥵

Orange Reaper





Trinidad Scorpion Green






7 Pot Bubblegum Mini Red

I don't know much about this variety as there isn't much information about it my plant produced small rounded fruits with the oversized colored calyx as is characteristic of BBGs.







Bhut Jolokia Indian Carbon

Very productive!



Condor's Beak

The pods have a very hard skin full of big seeds and don't taste much but for me is one of prettiest variety of C. chinense



Pimenta da Neyde



Purple Death



Aji Cristal

This plant has grown into a bush producing loads of peppers!





I don't know what happen here! 🤔


Extreme Member
Really like those loaded branches, A.
Our hottest summers here have produced the
gnarliest pods.if the chinenses have a chance
to set them in the cooler spring.
Thank you guys!

Are you marking controlled pollination pods with strips of blue painter's tape (on the PdN)?

Yep! I'm isolating some varieties so I don't have unwanted crosses in the future! But the method of gluing flower buds is quite tedious and has a low success rate. I'm looking for a type of fabric to cover branches or even the entire plant, but I'm not sure which fabric is used for this.

Good luck with your isolating!

Tulle cloth might work for you, or paint
strainer bags as well, if they have them at
the hardwa stores.
Just finished reading up on your glog. That's one impressive growlist!
Love those mini 7 pot bubblegum, especially that cross section pic is awesome.
Good luck with processing all those peppers! 😁
Thanks @Sulsa!

So I'm trying! It's a lot and I end up feeling bad for killing some of the plants to make room for others! It's always a hard decision to make! No space here! 😢
New year! Hope everyone doing well! 😁

Now some update about my plants...

7 Pot Peach

This variety produces large pods and the plant is also quite large too







Elysium Oxide Mustard

Another large pods variety, they taste good!







Aji White Fantasy

Nothing special here, like most baccatum its branches extend over a very large area needing to staking. The pods are not white as the name imply but yellowish-ivory in color
