Here's my Yellow Brain Strain....

RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Wow I love how the ghost hab is creating a widespread top. Looks great. Also that brainstrain looks very healthy. I'd imagine that thing is going to get very big from pictures I have seen from that variety


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

mine are all together hard to tell where one plant ends / begins, i think brazilian starfish is the tallest, all the others are doing great too


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Okgrowin- they all look healthy and ready to take off. What is it that you have wrapped or planted your peppers in?


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Moruga,
apparently the seeds of the Yellow Brain came from a 6-foot monster plant.

Here's my next best....classic Red Bhut Jolokia, in a small container - right around 1-gallon. I'm using the drip-tray in semi-hydro fashion. With this set-up, I had my largest and most productive plant last year. I'm wondering if the Bhut Jolokia will respond the same as last year's variety (Bonda ma Jacques).

My over wintered "yellow pequin" in 5 gallon vinyl bags. The plant is about 5-5 to 6ft tall and producing many in last years 5-1-1 mix.

RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

@OKgrowin

I love these bags! My photo above shows the pequins and the the next photo are a Charapita (yellow fire) and two cayenes that sparked realy quick after over wintering indoors with 5-1-1.

 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

This pic is of three different plants the one on the right is a little shorter than my second place brain strain but it is def putting out more pods than any of my plants. It is a bhut I think yellow.

Great looking peppers guys. Keep up the good work. PepperDave- are you using sand as your medium?


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

In containers its 5-1-1, in the field the soil is sandy but has plenty of organic matter. Always had good luck in the soil here


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Nice Chocolate Morugas Dave! About as big as my Moruga right now.

RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

That's exactly how my Douglah looks. Big ol fat leaves.

Very nice garden there Dave.

Here is my best reaper thus far, I've had two pulls from it with about 50-60 ripe pods, this flush is looking to be the best yet with around 100 green pods on it right now :)

Then I have the red savina plants, I have 3 now... Had 4, but one got chopped in half by the FL weather. These things are CRAZY producers, and honestly I can't keep up with them. Each plant puts off WELL above 100 pods ... I just can't pick that many off the three remaining plants in conjunction with all my other plants! Next year I will have only ONE of these, as it will be waaaay more than enough.

RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Cheater! I don't know how but you cheated lol jk. Those plants are amazing! I thought they were like five years old. Great work I think you won.


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Jay- would you possibly be able to send me a few seeds as well? Send mean email. Thanks!


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Now that I look at my peppers I'm sort of embarrassed haha. Here is my tallest of the bunch. I think it's in the Bishop Crowns DNA to grow tall fast. Started seed mid january

Email sent Morugaman.

...and no cheating here Scott :D
Just lots of miracle grow - LOTS! With 16 plants, and a full serving for each one every week, at six months... Well, you do the math. I'm pretty sure I should buy some stock at this point!

 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

I can post a picture . But I don't guarantee it to be of any interest. haha.

This is my Manzano


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Beautiful plant!

Stoney


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

It's not my tallest plant (poblanos are), or my most prolific (tobasco), but it's my favorite overall for growth and type of pepper - habanero.

Ten weeks ago it was a small 3x3 starter plant and now it's a nice bush with 100+ pods and still flowering...

I would be intrested in a few Red Savina seeds if possible. I can send you a SASE if needed.

Thanks

There is also the Choco ghost next too it though, few inches taller but not as many pods


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Y'all talk about 100 pods per plant lol. I thought mine are going crazy with 30 ish lol
Trinidads in the forefront, also bhut, reapers and habanero. All producing lots of pods except the reapers.

This is my best plant.I have no idea what it is.It is not what the label says.Does anyone know what this is.?


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Here is a shot of one of my Maruga Scorpions. It was started in September last year. Grew it in my office over the winter and got it in the dirt in the beginning of May.


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

A shot of some pods. There must be 60 or 70 on it now.


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

And here is a shot of my small the rest at this location. Working left to right from the front as near as I can remember: St Peter, Maruga Scorpion, Red Ghost, 7 Pod Doughlah, Chocolate Hab. From here it get dicey. There is a Brown Scorpion, Naga Morich, 7 Pod Brain Strain, Chocolate Scotch Bonnet, Scotch Bonnet, another Chocolate Hab, Aji Limon, and a Big Sun Hab. There are a couple more but Ill have to consult my map for that.

I have another area with about 70 plants and what ammounts to a corn field with about 250 more.

This is my Scotch Bonnet that I had to repot about 4 months back. I already have my first harvest and the flowers are starting to grow for the 2nd... should be harvesting mid-August, I'd guess.

Chinese five color


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Aili,
Beautiful Chinese 5 color. I have couple of them too. But mine are smaller and have just started flowering. I like the color of flowers too.


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Three Ghosts and one tree habanero. These are just for overwintering this year. Surprised at the production.


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

My Car Red Hab. Finally beginning to ripen.


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Wow Jay, those savina are so beautiful. I've never seen those. I wonder where I could find those.


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Not much to show off compared to others here but I'm loving the way my ghost reaper and butch t are looking right now. They are my biggest and fullest so far. I have another 23 plants that are about 2/3s the size of these but they are all loaded with flowers hoping to see pods soon.
Rey....


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

I'm embarrassed, late start here. My overwintered bihs and Douglahs looked great the beginning of the year but now are tall and scraggly and really need to be repotted and fertilized. My purple serrano that I cut back is still spindly (always was) but has its first pod (still in pot but now on porch, need to go larger).

I put 16 more sweet (non-bell) peppers in the tunnel today, had 80 planted in west bed last month and today saw 1 flower on Aji Limon and flower bud on Hinkelhatz. The rest aren't far behind. These were started from seed March 16 and transplanted mid-June (I made a note sweet peppers went in on June 18, hots were before then but didn't write down, probably a day or 2 before).


 o
RE: Post-a-pic of your best pepper plant

Jay, I'm also interested in some red savina seeds! What can I do to get some? Too many peppers to try but here goes for more lol

Lot of good looking plants! I figured better late than never. It wasn't easy to choose which one to show, a bhut jolokia looks way healthier but I started these habanero (pictured below) from seed so they are the best to me.

The one closest has outgrown everything except an Anaheim which you can barely see in the foreground, furthest one away is actually two Habs (the twins)

cheers!
