In this picture are 2 Dwarf Chiltepin from seeds from Semillas that sprouted on February 15. One of them shows signs of starting to branch out. A very nice growth habit for this variety. One of them will turn into a bonchi.

An hour ago, I soaked the C. Chinense seeds in a solution of 2% saltpeter in distilled water.

I will leave it for 2 hours, after which I will empty the saltpeter solution and put a solution of H2O2 0.3% plus Rhizotonic 1% for almost 24 hours..
Tomorrow I will put C. Chinense seeds in Root Riot cubes.

Last Sunday I cut out all the suspended C. Chinense plants. I picked all the ripe or green peppers. At the end of the season we had a pretty good harvest.

HSH SB makes beautiful peppers with a good aroma and the heat seems to be less than Papa Dreadie SB. It looks similar to the MOA SB to me which is a good thing. I will also grow some plants next year.

Pi 215734 is the revelation of the year. Although it is a C. Chinense, it has the shape of C. Bacatuum and the taste, smell and heat seem to be a combination of C Chinense with C. Bacatuum. This year I had one plant, next year I want to grow 4 plants.

The Fatalii plants produced enough pods in the end, but the pods are quite small and very few were ripe.

Zimbabwe Bird is an extraordinary plant. It has a wonderful appearance and is a very good producer in the 1.5 l pot. Unfortunately, the taste and hotness of the peppers is not as good. I will grow it over the winter just for its beauty.

The Dwarf Chiltepin bonsai is starting to look pretty good in that hydroponic pot. All summer it sat by a window in the sunlight, but soon it will go back under LED lights.

All the C. Annuum plants from the bottom are still in pots. I will come back with pictures if I decide to harvest the peppers today.

Looks like a successful grow this season, Vivian!
I always like the balcony jungle at your place!

I left some plants on the balcony watering them when I remembered.
On an HSH Scotch Bonnet I had some isolated pods that ripened nicely during the cold season.

Some Piment d'Espelette made flowers and pods. There were nights with -4°C (25°F). Photos were taken at 2°C (35.6°F).

It seems that mature plants are quite resistant to cold.
 
Those green pods in the last pic look like spanish Pimiento Piquillo.
Are those the Piment d’ Espelette?
 
@PaulG , All are Piment d'Espelette, but the pods have not reached their maximum size. Well, I don't even think that will happen in this cold period. Anyway, I will leave them out and I will keep you updated on their evolution. Or involution... :P

The Zimbabwe Bird in the office is still producing and looking good even though the temperature during the night is about 15°C (59°F).

I moved the Dwarf Chiltepin bonsai under the led light. It has new growth after half of the branches have dried.
