So, before I last went to sleep, I commenced dehydrating all our hot peppers, except the ones on the plants that I somehow missed during harvest. There always seem to be a few stragglers. I'm no stranger to cutting up hot peppers (including superhots) with unprotected hands (although I don't ...read more

Okay, in 2021, I'm focusing on sweet peppers, including several orange sweet peppers. No hot peppers, this year. They're all Capsicum annuum sweet peppers. This is mostly the beginning of a breeding project. I'm hoping to breed prolific, early, purple/orange, medium-sized, cone-shaped, thick-...read more

So, apparently, capsaicin inhibits collagen fiber formation, but it improves the fibers at the same time. This could be very interesting information for those with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (some people who have some symptoms but lack others might benefit from capsaicin, and some people should prob...read more

I never thought of using chili powder is salsa before. One of the reviewers here mentioned it: https://nuts.com/cookingbaking/herbsspices/pepper/chili-powder/1lb.html "February 1, 2018 Great flavor! I use it in the salsas that I sell at the Farmers Market. Ronnell, Askov, MN" ...read more

Question: Do you have to refrigerate peppers? Answer: Nope. You sure don't. I don't know why they refrigerate them in stores, unless it's to keep the green ones from turning red or something. In my opinion, you're better off keeping them unrefrigerated, even if you bought them from the ...read more

Here's a chile sauce recipe adapted from the Ball Book of Preserving, p. 53, which a relative used to make chile sauce for me. 4 quarts tomato 2 cups onion (2 medium onions) 2 cups sweet peppers 1 red hot pepper (we used two red Farmer's Jalapenos and an orange Aji Habanero) 1 cup sugar ...read more

I'd think lycopene would make red peppers red, since it makes red tomatoes red, and peppers and tomatoes are in the same family. However websites give conflicting information. One sight says red peppers are one of the fruits that do not contain lycopene, but some other sites say they do.

My Aji Ammarillo pepper plant, which is extremely tall (without needing support as yet) is finally setting a bunch of peppers! I'm happy.

Jalapeno harvest, 4 Sep 2019

in Annual Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Here's today's Jalapeno harvest. Most are Randy Sine's Evil Jalapenos (those big ones on top are probably a cross). Some are Farmer's Jalapenos (not much netting; so, maybe it's a cross, too); they're the light green ones on the left. Some are just regular Jalapenos (on the far left; the short, ...read more

Hungarian Yellow Wax chile pepper

I'm growing this, this year, for the first time. It seems a lot like a mildly hot version of the Sweet Banana pepper . It's kind of different, though.

Sweet Banana pepper

in Annual Pepper

We grew this in 2018, and I'm growing it this year, too. We probably grew it a number of years ago, too (maybe 2014 or 2013); the fruits were smaller/thinner then. This year and last, it has been easy-to-grow and prolific. It perhaps has thicker skin than many peppers. Freezing isn't the idea...read more

Ring of Fire chile pepper

in Annual Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I've grown Ring of Fire (Baker Creek's version) a few times, and loved it, especially in 5-gallon buckets. I'm growing Timeless-tomatoes.com's version, this year. The peppers are perhaps less pointed, less shiny, smaller, and later, but that may be due to growing conditions (it was right next...read more

Randy Sine's Evil Jalapeno pepper

in Annual Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
A few years ago, I got some Randy Sine's Evil Jalapeno F3 pepper seeds and grew two plants. One plant had orange fruit. The other one had red fruit. The orange one was earlier. It was one of my most vigorous peppers, if not my most (it was the most that first year anyway). The green ones were th...read more

Aji Habanero chile pepper

in Berry Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 3 comments
I grew one of these last year, and it did quite well. Great taste (a favorite, in fact, right after Aji Fulce 1). About as hot as Cayenne (it's not a Habanero). It's prolific, and the earliest C. baccatum I've grown. Easiest to grow, too. Large plant (but leaves aren't large and stems aren't thi...read more

Costa Rican is doing decently, now. Not the earliest pepper, but it is becoming prolific.

Chipotle pepper (Trade Winds Fruit's)

in Annual Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I'm impressed with the Chipotle pepper. It's vigorous, prolific and early. I tried a partially red one today and it was extremely sweet. Even the spiciness tasted sweet. It was weird, but great. The fruits look just like Jalapenos, but they don't taste like them. They taste more like a mildly...read more

Mustard Bhutlah

in Chinese Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 3 comments
Here's my regular Mustard Bhutlah plant, today. It has two large fruits, and maybe a few that are just starting to form. The one with anthocyanin has a lot more fruit (and a larger plant, too): Here's the regular Mustard Bhutlah's fruits:

Neapolitan pepper

in Annual Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I grew Neapolitan last year in containers. I'm growing it this year in the ground with a shredded wood mulch. It's doing better this year, and ripening faster. The first ripe fruit was a while ago. Here are some pictures of the fruits. I saved seeds from the three large ones in the bowl on 20...read more

Mustard Bhutlah with anthocyanin

in Chinese Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 4 comments
I'm growing two Mustard Bhutlah plants. One of them has black on its leaves and fruits. It started out having a lot of black, but soon a lot of the black dissipated. The stems and branches are black, except on the lower half of the plant. One of the fruits appears to be all black. I discovered t...read more
