Cool pepper plant

Recommended Posts

Last summer someone had a picture of a cool looking pepper plant that had peppers that looked like jalapenos but were purple and red and orange and maybe yellow. Just curious if anyone knows what it was called I cant find it and wanna order some seeds to grow it.

Loco Ornamental Pepper, that should get you started on your search.

Good luck.

I plan on putting a couple in little pots to spruce up the deck tables this year if I can find some at the local nursery.

I found them at Cal's Market and Garden Center here in Savage.

I'll let you know if I find them there again. You never know what they will have from year to year.

I don't know, I never even tried them, they are the size of a grape.

I figured they were nothing but all super hot seeds in them.

 

I tend to grow a couple very hot pepper varieties every year just to see what they look like, and maybe add a sliver of them to some pepper sauce.

Oh, and for drunk loudmouths at yard party's. "I dare ya to eat this!"

:D

 

(and I buy seedlings, never have gone the seed route)

Do you know if they sell stuff like ghost pepper or them reaper peppers I wanna try some of that stuff this year. No matter what I put in my jelly some buddies think it just ain't hot enough. Last year I even simmered the jalapeno and habenero seeds in the vinegar before I used it just to try and crank it up.

I have gotten them at the Fleet Farm garden center in BPark the last few times I grew them.

My dad has a catalog you can get Carolina reaper seeds. 7.50 for 10 seeds. 55% germination. I know the way I grow leggy peppers from seed it would cost me 50 bucks to get a couple good plants. Hopefully I can find some plants this spring.

I received my ghost pepper and Carolina reaper seeds yesterday from Ohio Heirloom Seeds. Now just have to get them to grow. If anyone comes across the plants when greenhouse season arrives please let me know.

I like to use a heat mat to keep soil temps up and in a humidity dome until a couple days after hot peppers sprout.

I've not grown Reapers but found this.

 

"First off, like many super hot peppers, the Carolina Reaper plant takes much time to germinate.  I have seen some seeds not show themselves for as long as a month."

I'm kinda wishing I went the seed route this year, for no other reason than to give myself a little hobby during all of this.

And who knows if the garden centers will be even open in a month or so?

Good luck with your crops folks!

They have been on a heat mat for the whole time. Took the dome off a few days ago so the other peppers in there can breathe a little.
