TalkingA thread for hot pepper-a-holics...


This thread will be a spot for hot pepper fanatics like myself to show pics and discuss methods of germinating and growing hot pepper plants.

Not only are they exceptionally ornamentally beautiful, they are also chalked full of vitamins and anti-oxidants.

Here's some of mine from last season...

























































Others may also feel free to post shots of their hot peppers and discuss how they like to grow them. I especially love peppers in pots and that's how all of mine in the above pics were grown - from seed.

I really enjoy eating the fruits and storing the extras in my freezer to eat all winter. I also like to share the peppers with neighbor's because they're so plentiful.

The colors are very appealing and charming. I like to even add little hot pepper plants to my flower pots, to add interest and style. There's a kind I'm sowing today called 'Little Blue Pot'. I've grown it before but looking forward to seeing it again this year.



Happy Gardening 2010!

Wow! Those are really colorful hot peppers you have there! I also have one hot pepper plant like those growing in my garden. It also has a lot of fruits now. I'm not so fond of using it in my cooking since not everyone in the house likes spicy and chili dishes but I plan to give them away to my neighbors who likes to eat them raw.

Mary, you could also look at making your own hot-sauce, which is easy, and commonly done in South America. That way you can cook whatever you want, quite mild, and your family can pick their own individual levels of spicy....

I've got about 50 sprouts right now of various peppers, but I've got no idea what they are yet - we just chucked the seeds from everything we used into a pot to see which ones would sprout. I'll wait for them to get a bit bigger before I taste the leaves to make the determinations.

Here's my "Black Pearl" plant...


Grew this one from seed in the laundry room window and kind of neglected it. It didn't get full sun so that's why the leaves aren't black, but only tinged with purple right now...





It's beginning to get fruits on it...





I've now brought it to a super sunny location so the leaves will turn dark black soon and tons of peppers will soon form...

how are you getting such nice plants indoors. I rigged a lighting system but my plants dont get too big before they go outside.. maybe 4-6 inches. They take off outside though. Maybe they are still too cold? I dont have a good place to grow inside with a window.
