Cant wait for these to turn. My yield on 1 plant has to be well over 100 peppers.....and I have 3 plants! Pics will be posted on FB.
very happy first time with pepper joes. I ordered many varieties with high yield of all. The atomic starfish is very tasty and just a hint of heat.
They grow very lanky at first. I topped one off because of this. Don’t Do It! The 4 that germinated are just under 6’ tall and full of peppers! Just ate my 1st one on 8/25 in zone 7. Looks like I will have 150 of these delicious little treats! Probably a good thing they were 40% germination like all the seeds I get here
I may not have the greenest thumb. And I live in a tough place to grow hot chilis. I'm on the ocean in New England, the wind never stops, and our seasons are short. So if a hot chili makes it to maturity in my container garden, it's a hearty variety. These plants grew to a shocking 6'6" (including the 7 gal container). Each plant produced about 2 dozen fruit. It's September 10 and I just tasted the first fruit to ripen. These far and away have the most interesting taste of any pepper I've ever eaten. Sweet, floral, crunchy. Add the heat similar to a typical cherry pepper (20k SHUs?) and you have a winner. This will be a regular in my garden going forward!
So far a great success. Every single seed germinated and the plants grew really strong and fast. Looking forward to a great harvest!
