Observed sun and heat tolerance of pepper plants?
I was kinda curious of your pepper plants heat tolerance, so I can figure out what peppers to plant for next year.
Here are my observations so far this year with what I have:
I put all my plants 6 weeks ago outside in full sun when they were between 4-8" tall. Temps finally started getting into the 90s this week and today it is supposed to reach 102F.
Ghost(Craigs rough strain)
Chile de Arbol
Doing ok, but had to move in partial shade this week because they were starting to sunburn:
Trinidad Scorpion Butch T
Chichen Itzo(except for one that seems do be unnaffected by sun)
White Bullet Habanero
Did not like the sun at all and had to move in the shade 3 weeks ago:
Manzanos(red, orange, & yellow)
Almost all the peppers(de Arbol, Ghost, Orange Hab, Hot Peter, Pasilla, Poblano, White Bell, Orange Thai) on one side of the house survived the winter even though it got down to 27F, are bearing fruit and are still loaded with flowers. The only peppers on the other side of the house that survived was a miserable looking ghost pepper, my two Bolivian Rainbows and an unidentified giant 4+ foot, small fruited hot pepper plant that I didn't label
