      Lista semi puri Associazione Pepperfriends 2017   10/22/2017

        Anche quest'anno siamo riusciti a produrre semi "puri" di parecchie varietà di peperoncino. La produzione dei semi in purezza garantisce il mantenimento delle caratteristiche della varietà (pianta e frutti di forma, colore, sapore ecc. conformi agli originali) anche nelle coltivazioni successive (per approfondimenti vedi le nostre guide). Produrre semi in purezza è laborioso;  l'Associazione sta facendo il possibile per continuare il lavoro di mantenimento delle linee pure, partendo da semi originali, a volte anche datati.   Lista semi puri disponibili

Chile pepper growing

Hi Guys! Today the peppers where outside for a while.

IMG_1429.JPG

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.

IMG_1418.JPG

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.

IMG_1455.JPG

This one is the Goat Pepper from Bahamas.

IMG_1436.JPG

This dark chinense is called Natal and is somewhat similar to CGN 21500 but my CGN 21500 is not that dark.

IMG_1441.JPG

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.

IMG_1434.JPG

Capsicum Flexousum

 

IMG_1456.JPG

This one comes from Myanmar and is called Kalaw. It belongs to the Capsicum Frutescens.

The best of 2012

DSC_0393.JPG

Hi Guys - Its been a while. But here are my favorits of 2012. 7 Pot Primo - best scorpion shape ever!

 

DSC_0632.JPG

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!

 

DSC_0842.JPG

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!

 

DSC_0085.JPG

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).

 

DSC_0337.JPG

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!

 

blogger-image--1288787558.jpg

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.

 

DSC_0805.JPG

The capsicum pubescens did seem to like the weather and was earlier than ever before. I did grow Aji Largo and...

 

DSC_0365.JPG

...PI 585261 and...

 

DSC_0196.JPG

...and Rocoto Grandis. All with good results.

 

Have a nice december

This year I am growing loads of peppers. But many of the seeds are old - so some wont grow. Some of the wild ones has the wrong species I belive.

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

Patahontas

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.

 

DSC_0468.JPG

 

That it is a Capsicum annuum (or closely related), there is no doubt. So far only one flower per nod.

 

DSC_0475.JPG

 

The foliage is healthy and looks set to thrive.

 

DSC_0513.JPG

 

Now I hope that the plant is to be as promising as it has been so far.

 

DSC_0498.JPG

 

DSC_0483.JPG

 

The plant is slightly more hairy than normal capsicum annuum.

January - germination of Habanero Cappucino

 

DSC_0341.JPG

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.

Even though I had serious problem with bugs eating up my pods and leaves outside in the garden. The peppers in the greenhouse has done quite well. The small greenhouse has really made a great difference when it comes to the chinense peppers

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).

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!).

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.
