Last year I planted serranos, jalapenos, habaneros and ghost peppers in my garden, which is raised and a size of 6 X 8 feet area. The ghost peppers did germinate and sprouted but died after reaching a height of 6 inches. I live in Austin so heat and humidity is abundant. My habaneros did grow and produced many peppers but the peppers were very mild. Possibly milder than store bought jalapenos. Would any of you know why my habs were so mild?
I was meticulous in not overwatering and the soil I used I purchased from a local landscaping company that was 50% compost and garden soil and loam. I also added a little bone and blood meal when I planted them.
Any suggestions on habanero and ghost pepper gardening would be very appreciated
