Radishrain's 2021 pepper growlist

Previous Topic Next Topic
Posted by Radishrain Radishrain
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-walled sweet peppers with great taste, which resist sunscald even when exposed to direct sun, but I'm open to other types of sweet peppers, too, of course, as long as they're awesome. I plan to continue this project indefinitely, until further notice.

All the peppers were planted (on the 31 Mar 2021 waking period) indoors in trays with worm castings, peat moss, Permaguard food grade diatomaceous earth, wood ash, and monoammonium phosphate. I plan to keep them indoors until they start to sprout (and then I plan to take them outside during the day and in at night (except when the nights are supposed to be warm enough). I'm not planning to start them in my greenhouse, this year. I planted 36 containers of peppers (no less than 3 or 4 seeds per container, to help encourage better germination, but more seeds in most cases). I didn't freeze seeds before planting them, this year (although some might have been frozen last year).
