At the Fiery Foods Festival I picked up seeds of some peppers that aren’t very common. I got Red Caribbean Habaneros, Cajamarcas, Uba Tubas (Christmas Bell), Aji Limon, and of course the Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper). Once the peppers are ready Josh and I will be sampling the peppers for your viewing pleasure. That should be really interesting.
I planted a few of each about two weeks ago and most of the peppers have already sprouted. The Bhut Jolokias are the only ones that have not sprouted yet and that is normal as they will take almost twice as long as other peppers to sprout and grow.
All of the peppers are planted in pots with a somewhat coarse soil designated for cactus and palms. I put the seeds approximately half an inch deep into the soil and have been keeping them watered. You have to make sure that once these have sprouted that they don’t see temperatures below 50 degrees over night.
For those of you interested in growing peppers, I will post updates with pictures of the peppers as the grow.
