Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

This appears to be an actual variety. When I searched with just the two Korean characters, all I got was "rust colored" but when I grabbed the word for "pepper" from the first one and added it, Google spit out the seed packet image. Image

1. favorite fruiting, hypertrophy in many early jeoongi greenhouse quantity. 2. Internode (between the nodes of the leaves) is short and stick to easy cultivation management. 3. small changes in fruit shape is extremely excellent gloss. 4. The texture is crunchy and less spicy.

Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

I'm crazy about peppers! :) Peppers and tomatoes are my main priorities in the garden. If my zucchini, corn and beans produce, that's just a bonus.
This is my second full year of gardening. I plan to try more exotic/uncommon varieties next year.
This is what I have this year as far as peppers go:
8 jalapeno
8 cayenne
4 Serrano
4 sweet banana
4 golden California wonder
1 tobasco
1 ghost

Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

Went to big box store yesterday and impulse bought 2 chilies.
Hybrids, so not like what I'd normally grow, but they were impulse buys.
I got:

Havasu and Cajun belle.

I think these will make a nice MILD fermented chili sauce! You've inspired me to try something new!

Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

I just potted up some Hawaiian chile, habanero, and mucho nacho jalapeno into 4 inch pots.

For the sale this Saturday I have orange and red habanero, anaheim, cayenne, serrano, mucho nacho jalapeno, Hawaiian chili, poblano, and a few Korean peppers.

In the herb garden the Thai chiliie have pods on them in my back yard the Carolina reaper and super chile have ripe red ones. I have a Chinese Giant bell that is slowly growing. I didn't think it would take so long, but that is ok. I don't need it yet.

Unfortunately the thrips and mites are back deforming the new leaves on the jalapeno peppers.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

What kind of mites do you get on your peppers?

Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

I started CalWonder and Orange Mini Bell from seed. I attempted jalapeno so kindly sent from the webmaster a while back, but they failed to germinate. :( Yesterday, I impulse-bought Cute Stuff Red mini bells that I'll stick in containers. I liked the name, and you can't have empty containers, no sir! ;)

I had a brain fart last fall - after prepping my two hot peppers for overwintering (Cayennetta and Apache) I basically forgot about them and the frost killed them. I'll have to look up to see if bells can be overwintered, or if that's desirable.

Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

Wow, some folks in this thread are pepper crazy :) Jealous of some your varieties.. some day when I have more space!

Right now we just planted the following: Golden Cal Wonder, Serrano, and Hungarian Wax

The Golden Cal Wonder and Serrano seem a little stunted.. but I'm a newbie and not sure what to expect yet. I'll start another thread!

Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

I grew Korean peppers somebody gave me a packet of seeds. He said they would not grow for him. The packet was in Korean and I can't read that but it had a similar picture. It looks like a shorter fatter cayenne but the flavor is mildly hot. My Korean friend says they don't use very hot peppers to make kimchee, they just like a little bit of heat. They add cayenne powder if they want it hotter.

In summer I get mostly spider mites. They get on everything tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and ornamentals. I have treated the hibiscus for erineum mites that come out April-June so at least the hibiscus has leaves now instead of stubs.

Spider mites are difficult to control and their predators don't seem to be able to keep up with them. I lop off the tops with the worst damage and hose down the foliage as much as possible. Sulfur and pyrethrins work but it is hard to use it in the summer heat and pryrethins will knock down the predators too, so I only use it as a last resort. I do use alcohol and it seems to help. Eventually, what will finally get rid of them is a really good knock down drenching rain.

I planted Carolina Reapers, but I think they may be unstable. Some of the pods made my nose run but others I barely noticed.

Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

This is not going to be in chronological harvested order but I might as well post updates to this thread -- here are some with green but not ripe yet fruits and were brought inside ahead of killing frost/freeze:

Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

Out of the 11 pepper varieties I grew, I would not have a single one to recommend based on this year's performance. It might have been the worst year for me growing peppers in recent history. Fortunately, most of the varieties were not new to me and I have those past experiences for evaluation. The new ones ~ shrug ~ ?

It has finally gotten into my head how early season high and low temperatures effect the development of the fruit of tomato plants. The whiplash June temperatures wrecked some havoc in the tomato patch but, those tomatoes had an okay year.

It wasn't so much abnormal fruit development in the peppers. Thank Heavens I didn't put in a whole lot of plants! Badly stunted by the early season, they had trouble with sunscald and low production. Some peppers off most every plant and that is about all I can say ... altho "some" was like 1 or 2 useful peppers in many cases.

Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

I only had one new variety that was a keeper, and it wasn't really new - just a new source, thus a better growing Chocolate habanero, from Redwood City. Was a good pepper year for the old timers, just none of tbe other new ones.

Re: 2016 Pepper Varieties -- whatcha growin?

I prefer the older varieties now because I think the new ones are being released too early. I am having a lot more problems with instability and variable heat in the peppers.

I had a hard time finding Scotch bonnets someone asked for. I finally found some, but I am not sure they were pure because they were unstable too.

It is getting to that time of year when I start to make my lists for next year, but it will be a while before I actually place any orders since it takes me a long time to pare them down. I have done a little better this year and ordered fewer seeds but I still have way too many left and I have some saved seeds of beans and sun hemp that are still in the pods.
