Outdoor Peppers 2017

Ginger's picture

Started the indoor-outdoor peppers a bit late this year - February 18 / 28. (I forgot I didn't have any more carmen pepper seeds, so that got started later...)

Early starts: yummy, costa rican, and carmen (1.5 weeks less early)
Main season: adds lunchbox peppers

None of them are close to ripe yet. The early yummy pepper is closest, with exactly one fruit. ;) A couple of the carmen peppers are still waiting for a slot in the growbox, while the stonehead cabbages finish heading.

Lots of peppers ripening now.

Lots of peppers ripening now. :) More from the early plants, but ripening from the main-season plants as well. Very weird weather, when the peppers are ahead of most of the tomatoes.

Not tracking harvests this year. The peppers pictured are yummy, carmen, lunchbox red, orange, and gold (I think), and the big guy is a costa rican. One each of carmen, yummy, and costa rican were the early indoor/outdoor plants (February start).

Yeah, those advanced fruit

Yeah, those advanced fruit from a month ago? Still haven't ripened. All is pokey on the pepper front, though the elder three plants have quite a bit of fruit on them. (They're the tallest three in the driveway pots.)

I got Gurney's Pepper food and fed it to them. (I can't believe they sell three different formulas for tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant - but they do.) The last two Carmen pepper plants (on the right) only joined the growbox a week ago or so (with fruit on board), when I harvested the last cabbage. The cabbage wasn't grown, but caterpillars laid eggs, so I wanted to eat it before they did.

Mostly moved outside full

Mostly moved outside full-time last weekend. Some advanced fruit under development.

I'm really not sure about that costa rican pepper plant. The fruit shape is weird, the plant forked at the bottom, some of its leaves are misshapen. We shall see.
