Red and green HOT Christmas peppers

don555(3a)December 20, 2013

This is some kind of Naga from seeds I got a few years back from Esox07 (did you ever identify the exact variety, Bruce?). I planted the seeds 5 months ago in late July indoors under lights. They are just now starting to color up their first flush of peppers. The mix of red and green is kind of a nice Christmas-colors display!

Lots of flowers on them now for a second flush in 2 or 3 months. I think this year I'll try to keep one of these plants and plant it outside in my northern garden in summer 2014. Climate might well be too cold and summer to short to ripen up a third flush outdoors in big pots, but you never know unless you try.

Anyway, a couple pics:

I like the way the peppers look like ornaments on a "pepper tree." 42 of the 46 "trees" have peppers going. All shades, green, orange, and red.
