Week 3 of the 2024 Pepper Season

March 18, 2024 | Article Topics:

So far, the 2024 pepper season is off to a great start. Of the 40 different varieties that I started late in February, I’m looking at 30 different varieties – for a total of 37 plants that will go outside when the time comes.

Those seeds that did not perform well appear to have been mostly isolated to one specific tray that used coco coir in the starting mix instead of peat. It was my first time using that material so that’s something I am going to have to investigate later on – and it’s also something that comes with experimenting with different mediums.

So, below is a list of the varieties that will be going outside come May as well as the number of plants for those that I will keep multiples of:

  • Alba Regia (3)
  • Anaheim (2)
  • Blot
  • Borg 9 BBG7 Purple
  • California Reaper
  • Carrot Bomb
  • Cyclone
  • Defcon 7
  • Etiude (2)
  • FOX Purple Ghost
  • Giant Anconcagua
  • Goronong
  • Habanero Cappuccino
  • Hellapeno
  • Hellboy
  • Jalapeno: Craig’s Grande (3)
  • Jalapeno: Zapotec
  • Leviathan Chocolate
  • Peach Miasma
  • Peppa Dew
  • Reaper Dark Magma
  • Reaper Naga
  • Reaper of Death Orange
  • Reaper Purple Peach
  • Reaper x Moruga
  • Reaper x SRTSL
  • Santa Fe Grande (2)
  • Sugar Drop Lemon
  • Tiberius Mauler Caramel

Until next time, happy growing!
