Are these Boonie or are they Bonnie?
Boonie peppers or Bonnie peppers?
Someone commented that these are not Bonnie peppers, which, according to the label, these are Boonie peppers, instead. But was that a spelling error? I’m confused.
These peppers are NOT Bonnie peppers.. Bonnie Peppers are long and slender about,1 1/2 inches long.
I had great germination, but the plants couldn’t withstand a Central Valley summer. The humidity in the garden is easily double that of the general area, but that’s still only around 40%.
I’m going to try starting them earlier next season, like January or early February, to see if they fare better when they’re older before the heat really hits.
I really hope to get them to grow and set fruit here because they’ve got great flavor and good heat for every day eating.
I used to live in Guam, so when I saw pepper joes selling seeds I jumped on it. I live in Michigan now so I don’t know if that has something to do with it but my boonie peppers are purple, never the less they are great boonie peppers, taste great and a lot of heat, I will definitely be getting more seeds from pepper joes. Bty all 20 of my seeds sprouted
