Japeleno Bud already

Post  scmelik on 5/30/2011, 9:54 pm

I went out to the garden tonight to check on things and I noticed on one of my japeleno plants that I bought from lowes there was a bud starting so I got looking at the other plant that I got and it had two. It seemed a bit early to me so I clipped them off so that the plants could develop a better root system rather than making fruit at this point.

Was that the right move this early in the growing season or should I let any others that I find go? If I did correctly then at what point do you stop clipping them off and let them grow?

If blossoms appear up to a week after the move to the garden, pinch them off.
You want energy going to the root, not the blossoms at this point.
Pinch them out when they are 6-8" tall.

The jalepenos in the babysitting pot have peppers.



The plant was about 7" tall when I dug it up and took it to my son.

mine plants are not near that big, only about 5-7 inches tall and the bud wasn't quite that big either, it had just turned over and started to hang down. I think I will clip them off for another week or two as they start showing up just to make sure my roots get a good hold. Its just finally going to start hitting the 80's this week so they should start taking off soon.

I transplanted three Sweet Yummy Peppers (Cook's Garden) on May 9th and found a baby pepper on one this weekend! The first thing in my garden that looks like food! hungry
