My End of Year Habenero Harvest

mea2214(z5 Chicago)September 28, 2012

I don't normally post harvest pics but I had a good year with the veggies and my habenero plants were heavy producers and they're very photogenic. More people will take tomatoes so I can give them away. The habs are harder to move so I dehydrate them before they rot. That pile of habs is from seven plants. Harvest from yesterday.

That's a lot of heat. I hope you have some sauces, jams, and powders planned. Congratulations.

Those Habs are great. I grew one last year and it produced a lot of peppers for me. Should have a lot of flakes/powder to get you through until next season.

Nice!! I always like to keep some hab powder nearby. Right next to the cayenne, salt, and pepper. :-)

Gorgeous harvest! What's better than a pile of fresh picked peppers? Those habs look like a lot of fun.

Out of curiosity, what sort of tomatoes are those?

Thanks. The tomatoes are Celebrity and Big Boys, two basic types because I've been having real problems with them for the last 5 seasons. I probably will diversify more next season after finally having a successful year with them.

I was surprised at how many habs I got per plant this year. It might have been the hot dry weather. Here in Chicago we more than broke the record for 90+ days and had a bunch of 100+ days. It was a brutal summer. Habs are very easy to grow on the rooftop and I only grew 7 this year because I didn't want a big harvest because it's a lot of work gutting and filling the dehydrator with them LOL. I also used Cleome (a plant with big flowers that bloom all summer) as companion plants and that might have helped as well since they attract a lot of bees.
