Jan picture of the bucket brigade peppers my son is trying to overwinter.



They are alive but not pretty right now. These are the chocolate hab, ghost and red scorpians. Regular hab, 7 pot and more ghost in another greenhouse. Had seed for morouga but it never germinated. Tried again this year and still no luck.

@H_TX_2 wrote:This might be a good year to sell the peppers. I was at my nursery on Friday and looking for a good jalapeno. The guy there was asking if I wanted the hottest pepper available the ghost pepper. After I said no he showed me the price of almost $10 for a 4 inch seedling. He said due to conditions last year there was a seed shortage for ghost peppers and the prices were outrageous. Coelli, good luck I hope you can support your gardening habit with some of those peppers.

Another positive that comes with SFG. Buy seeds which usually come in packets that have more seeds than you need and save seeds from year to year. If you don't have to buy new seeds and seedling every year a problem on the supply side will not affect your gardening. Imagine planting an old fashion row garden last year with ghost peppers and thinning out half of your sprouted seedlings. Then buying new seeds this year and the price is double from last year. I would automatically start calculating how much money I pulled out of the ground (thinned seedlings) and threw in the trash.

After reading this I went to the dried pepper pot and pulled 4 ghost pod and there are still a pod or two on the green house ghost. I'll see what I can get to germinate. Hope I'm not waste of time

Just wanted to report that  I managed 25 ghost seedlings. Took some to my son in law in VA and son gave some away.   My daughter in law brought back some Philippine peppers and I managed to sprout over a dozen of them.

I'll see what my son managed to keep growing when I visit over July 4th.

Looking forward to your report Kay Very Happy  Those ghost peppers are insanely hot lol.   So far my pequin plants are doing well. I'll get some pics as soon as they start producing. The purple cayenne's look pretty neat. The foliage has a dark dusting to them and some nice little purple flowers. I'm getting kind of excited to seeing how these peppers turn out.

Re: really hot peppers

Two of my SWC (bucket) peppers "overwintered", and are blooming heavily.

Specimen 1 is a Yellow bhut jolokia...
 

Specimen 2 is a Red Savina...


Both plants were pruned back severely last fall, after most leaves had dropped. Both were kept indoors until Spring. They were dormant until placed in full sun. I've fed them with nutrient solution several times.
Their main stems are woody stumps with new growth at many points all around!

Kay, I know I keep posting my hot peppers in your regional forum, but it's just such a great thread!

My chili pequin peppers are starting to put out. They have great flavor and burn like molten lava. They may be tiny, but these little suckers pack an incredible punch What a Face

saving seeds

Post  jimmy cee on Fri Aug 16, 2013 11:37 am

Regarding saving pepper seeds
While not terribly expensive I would sure like to know if these cayanetta pepper plant
seeds could be saved for next year, and how to prepare them.
I paid $8.00 for 25 seeds, if I can save that, I would like to.
I have2 in hanging baskets, 1 in a container that is growing like crazy, a couple in the SFG bed.
I tried a few smaller peppers and they aren't very hot..kind of think they will improved with age..
As we do...Very Happy 
Garden cayanetta

Sorry for the delayed reply jimmy cee.
Covers prevent evaporation, infestation, and discourages critters from digging.
The tube is used (with a funnel) when needed to replenish the bottom reservoir with water or nutrient solution.

Thanks RoOsTeR!
We make "Ghost" paste, "Ghost" jelly, pickled "Ghost" , dried "Ghost".
I'll likely try "Ghost" hot sauce this year. Or maybe I'll try pods from my "Chocolate Scorpion" (the NEW world's hottest) growing nearby.

I don't think mine qualify as 'really' hot peppers, but I did just pick my first 3 chiles this afternoon.  My cilantro is going crazy and my tomatoes are starting to blush, so I see salsa in my future!

Don't think I've seen a chocolate scorpion before. I have a chocolate habenaro. Be sure to save some seed.
