    Re: Pepper Heads?

    I did at a few years ago. I had a couple of jolokias that were 36" high. I didn't want them at home over the winter (No good heated southern window), so I brought them at the office where we have a couple of huge south facing windows. It also gave me more time to enjoy them has they were getting bigger. The Following spring, my father (An old mentality gardener) thought to himself that the plants wouldn't flower anymore and therefore it was pointless to keep them around. So he took them and threw them out, so he could use the pots. I was Irate when I found out! At that point I got pissed off so bad I decided not to grow them anymore. What's the point of growing a plant that will not yield any froots unless to can keep it safe over the winter?!

    Last year I decided to do it again because I set up a small greenhouse and I thought that it would work out. Not so much! I lost all my pots. This year I'm starting over and I'm going to figure out something else yet. If anyone has any ideas, please help me.

    I'll ask my buddy in Rochester and see if he has any tips. I'm pretty sure he keeps his in his basement or garage then brings them outside come spring.

    Welcome to puff man. Jealous of your selection. I've never tried the Brain Strain but it sounds like a good pepper.

    Yes I do! I can't really grow them where I am at the moment, I just do not get enough sun outside where I can put my pots... Therefore I have a ton of seeds from the last few years.

    They'll stay green while they grow in size then they'll start to change color. This can take a few days to a week depending on the amount of sun. When they get a nice deep red they're ready. If they're fire truck red then your close. The more you let them mature the more heat they'll have as well. BTW did the Epsom salt help?

    Kinda off topic but that's one thing I hate about how people grow jalapeņos... They don't let them turn red and mature which robs the pepper of reaching its maximum heat.

    Well my cayenne plant is ridiculous. They are only now starting to show signs of redness but barely. I just tried one and it was hot! There are probably two hundred peppers on this plant. I'm thinking about cutting all the flowers so it can focus on the fruit that's already started. Seem reasonable?

    I was actually going to ask the same thing. My scorpion plant died recently moving into my new house. Pretty upset about it.

    I wouldn't cut the flowers. How much direct sun are the peppers getting? If you want you can clip the big ones and leave them in the sun to ripen up. The fact you have that many peppers on one plant means you've got a really healthy plant.

    Don't know why I never mentioned it before but it just came to me as I looked in my fridge. Does anyone else put their peppers in bottles of soy sauce or vinegar? Great way to infuse some heat into your foods.
