Chile pepper growing

Entries in this blog

 

Outside for a few minutes in this very cold spring

Hi Guys! Today the peppers where outside for a while. About 20 peppers where outside most of them capsicum chinense, in the middle you can see Rocoto from Vina del Mar. In the front with pointy leafs three pequin/chiltepin. In this photo In the front Harold St Barts and Carolina Reaper. Behind them with very curly leavs CGN 22092. Close to the wall Flexousum and Yellow Chacoense. This one is the Goat Pepper from Bahamas. This dark chinense is called Natal and is somewhat similar to CGN 21500 but my CGN 21500 is not that dark. The second pepper to set flowers was this CGN 22092. The first one was Pequin from Ischia (you can see the flowers in the two first photoes) which I belive is "from" Italy. Capsicum Flexousum   This one comes from Myanmar and is called Kalaw. It belongs to the Capsicum Frutescens.

The best of 2012

Hi Guys - Its been a while. But here are my favorits of 2012. 7 Pot Primo - best scorpion shape ever!   This one is not the regular Red Fatalii, but it also go under the name Red Fatalii. I got it from an american gentleman. I have seldom seen a capsicum chinense been so prolific as this one! Highly recomended!   A capsicum chinense that seemed to like the cold summer of 2012. Columbian Orange Lantern PI 257127. Quite small and very very tasy - nice heat aswell!   A pepper named by my friend Mats after his wife: Patricia. As you see its a capsicum baccatum. These peppers had really long tails and were the best tasting baccatum with this shape I have ever tasted. Nice heat aswell (hotter that the regular Jamacian Bell etc).   Friggitello is a chile pepper variety with The Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit (AGM). It's well worth it! Besides that it always gives abundant harvest so keeps the plant very healthy. I love to fry it in olive oil like I do with Padron. The variety always gives better yield than padron is my experience. The variety has no heat but is very good nonetheless!   2012 was not the best year for growing peppers in sweden. Many plants did only produce a very small harvest and som pods hade to be harvested while still green. Like these TS Morouga Yellow.   The capsicum pubescens did seem to like the weather and was earlier than ever before. I did grow Aji Largo and...   ...PI 585261 and...   ...and Rocoto Grandis. All with good results.   Have a nice december   Regards   Patrik with family

Thanks!

Had a problem of getting true seeds Bhut Jolokia and 7 pod. Even very known seed companys gave me hybrids. This year my Bhut Jolokia and 7 pod turned out true. Thanks Claudio!   Bhut Jolokia

Unknown pepper from Mazaroni River, Guyana

This fun peppers I got from orchid collectors. They had been on a trip in to rain forest in Guyana. Near Mazaroni River, they ran on this chile pepper. They have enjoyed this variety much and cultivated it with success in Stockholm, Sweden. Now I grow it for the first time. I must say that so far it is one of my favorites this year. It bloomed first and has a bushy growth habit and looks nice.     That it is a Capsicum annuum (or closely related), there is no doubt. So far only one flower per nod.     The foliage is healthy and looks set to thrive.     Now I hope that the plant is to be as promising as it has been so far.       The plant is slightly more hairy than normal capsicum annuum.

Here I go again:)

Ciao my dear pepperfriends!   A big update is coming. Started sowing 1 january 2011. Planted some later in January and February. Now is most time for repotting:)   The peppers that I am growing this year (some missing)   Aji Bolivian baccatum Aji Pineapple baccatum Aji from Viña del Mar baccatum Dong Xuan Market baccatum Inca Red Drop baccatum Jamican Bell baccatum Pimenta Barra-Do Ribeiro baccatum Mazaroni River, unknwon pepper from the rainforest in Guyana Capsicum sp 7 Pod Classic chinense 7 pod Jonah chinense Bhut Jolokia chinense Carmine Yellow chinense Chocolate Bhut Jolokia chinense Habanero Cappucino chinense Pimenta da Neyde chinense Scarlet Lantern chinense Trinidad Scorpion chinense White Habanero (Mild) chinense Datil Red chinense Serrano Stuard annuum Pimenta del Piquillo annuum Red Olive baccatum Peter Pepper annuum Kaili Mirch annuum Trinidad Bush annuum Heatwave annuum De Arbol annuum Ros De Mallorca annuum Alexander annuum Hot Banana annuum Big Banana Red annuum Pimento de Padron annuum Sivri Biber annuum   also was given these peppers by friends, hard to say no.   Friggitello. (do you know anythig about this one?) Pepproncino rosso. Bishops Crown, I will compare it with Jamaican Bell (Is there a difference, some people say that there is a difference) Mini Bonnet. Habanero Dulce.   January - germination of Habanero Cappucino   This mystical pepper looking up from the earth, I call it Mazaroni River as it found near the river in Guyana. It was found there by Orchid Hunters. Fruits are oval shape about 2 cm and germination occurred so quickly suggests that most of it is a Capsicum annuum. (Now confirmed annuum). My guess is a "wild or at least half wild:)" annuum.   The roots of Inca Red drop above ground?!?   Reppoted for the first time, picture taken some weeks after reppoting.   Dont know if I want to grow this one, just tried the germnation. I belive all the seeds came up. Quite good for a wild one. Capsicum lanceolatum.   Pimenta Da Neyde   Pimenta da Neyde again   Overvintred Chocolate Bhut Jolokia, 6/3 2011   Mazaroni River flower   Harvest time in april, a pepper that (the seeds) was bought as Yellow Bhut Jolokia (overwintred plant).   Have a great time my friends.   Ciao   Patrik

7 pod and others in second pot

Inspired by Mats I planted the second time early this year. The varieties were in turn Bhuta Jolokia, Inca Red Drop, Locato PI387838, Pimenta Barra Do Ribeiro, Tabasco Greenleaf, Pimenta Da Neyde and 7 Pod. The plants were rooted through the fine, so it was a good time to give them bigger pots. I added a little chicken manure, which gives an extra kick with nitrogen. As you can see I filled in with considerably with soil because the soil tends to sick together when watering. The ancient pots hold approximately 0.6 l - the new 1.5 l (2.5 l for the Bhut Jolokia).

White Rocoto

A nice rocoto with typical rocoto taste. Many had brown(almost purple at times) parts because of the sun.

Grilled peppers

A week ago we grilled some peppers, it was really nice. We also smoked 1 kg jalapenos (with some other annuums for our special recipe;)). Really nice but it took a whole weekend. The taste was great, but not as great as Jukkas Savukristalli (best hot pepper powder I have ever tasted!).       Some of the peppers of 2009

Winter, Orto Novo and a new book

Well a couple of days ago winter came to town. So I harvested most of my chile peppes that were still out. The plants in greenhouse are still well with some extra help from a fan and isolation. I also attended Orto Novos chile pepper harvest. Very nice to pick peppers for almost nothing. Most pics or from this event. Last but not least its very nice to read a new book when the season is almost over.   Regards   Patrik
