Here are some pictures of my pepper babies which i started mid-January. These were taken about two weeks ago. I will update them soon. They are best crop I’ve ever had.
Albino Bullnose – one of my favorites. Starts out this amazing white and turns to a beautiful, dark red. My first experience with a white pepper.
Carolina Reaper, a superhot, not for weenies!
Guajillo – a customer request, hot but not searing
Petite Colour – mini multi colored pepper mix
Trinidad Scorpion, a superhot.
I seeded my super hots and my “just plain hot” peppers over the last couple of days.
The superhots: Carolina Reaper, purportedly the hottest pepper in the world, the Ghost pepper, aka Bhut Jolokia, and the Trinidad Scorpion can take up to 8 weeks to germinate.
The normal hot peppers (ones that are not reported to set your head on fire) that I planted are Thai, two kinds of Habanero, Serrano, Cayenne, Hungarian Hot Wax and Chinese Five Color can also be slow. I do know they are slow to grow, hence my starting them in January. Next week I will sow the rest of them. The sweet bells, non sweet bells and the medium hots like Jalapenos, Poblanos etc.
The funny thing is that I am of hispanic descent yet I don’t like anything even remotely spicy! Wait, I do have a caveat to that statement. I will use the smallest piece of jalapeno that I can get away with in my salsas for flavor. And I mince it to dust at that.
