2008 Zensurweb Chile Pepper Grow Log
News:
September 8 :

Some creature, perhaps a Squirrel or mouse, is destroying my peppers. All the big juicy peppers have been nibbled on !

The Super Hots that I though were all dead are growing like mad. Too late to be any good this season but perhaps they can be over wintered.

This mornings Harvest Picture:

August 3rd:

Tried my first Dagger Pod Today. I was a bit disappointed at first as it didn't seem too hot. After about 2 minutes the heat really kicked in. Similar heat to a Thai Red. Nice taste. I updated lots of pictures today to show the latest pod growth.

July 27th:

Nice Harvest Today (Cayenne, Kung Pao, Thai Red and Thai Dragon Hybrid

July 12th:

Added Pictures of the remaining missing Chiles.  Starting to get a good harvest of pods now from the Cayenne, Thai Hot Dragon Hybrid and Kung Pao. Also harvested first pod from Tabasco.

July 4th:

I had my first harvest of the season today. Some ripe Cayenne Long Slim. I chopped them up and had then on a burger. Not much heat but very tasty. The Kung Pao plants are absolutely heaving with peppers but none ripe yet.

June 11th:

Unfortunately the Super Hots I Planted this year got to about 2-3" tall then all died off so it is another year without Bhut Jolokia, Trinidad Scorpion and 7 pot. The Kung Pao and Cayenne Long Slim are producing pods like mad and hopefully I should have some ripe by the end of the month.

Kung Pao
Medium Hot, Cayenne Type; from Sichuan Province in China. C.annuum. I Personally feel that this chile is misnamed. It looks like a regular Cayenne and I love the taste but I dont think it is the real pepper. According to authentic recipes for Kung Pao Chicken the pepper should be "Facing Heaven Pepper" which is difficult to find in the USA and of completely different pod type. I have been trying to source some seeds for "Facing Heaven Pepper" for a long while.

Tobasco (Overwintered)
This plant got enormously bushy last year and then died back in the winter. This year it has been flowering like mad but not setting any pods. Strange tasting pods that are thin skinned but very juicy inside. The pods towards the end of last season were very hot indeed. Its about 30" high so far this year (in a 24" pot).
