What are the pros? Great little easy pepper
What are the cons? To long to grow
When it did start to bloom the cutest little pepper had a bit to it. Takes a while to get there, but well worth it. I still have a pack from last year. I am going to try them again and this time put them in pots. Bunnies around where I live are crazy about them before the blooms. Time and patience are what is needed, easy to grow but patience is needed. You have got to try these little heated peas size peppers. It shows that a little pepper can pack a big punch.

What are the pros? Pretty plant, very productive
What are the cons? Takes time to harvest
I always try to plant something different that people can see when they walk by. Usually gets people to stop and ask questions. This was a great conversation starter for me last summer. I think I even create a few new gardeners!!!... and friends! ?

What are the pros? Flavor, heat, novelty
What are the cons? None
These plants grew despite my best efforts! I had unexpected travel this spring and pretty much abandoned these little plants to the elements. In this case, spring downpours and a hot SE Georgia summer. I left them on the back porch and watered only when I felt exceptionally guilty. Despite the maltreatment come July they were still thriving so I plopped them in a 3, 5, and 10 gallon pots and gave them some TLC (regular watering and some organic plant food sticks). They produced handfuls of little orange peppers and the taste is amazing. Spicy but flavorful, very aromatic in soups and stews. Place one or two in a dish and press the oil out with the back of a spoon and they elevate any dish! The plants continued to produce until the first week in December. I just harvested all of the orange and green berries and dried them in a dehydrator. Delicious green as well. I will definitely grow these again.

What are the pros? Great germination rate
What are the cons? Takes forever to pick a plant
Grew two Aji Carapita plants in an ebb and flow hydroponic system. Started them indoors in late February 2017, and moved them outdoors in early May. Had great growth at first but we had somewhat of a heatwave in July such that the nutrients were consistently in the upper 80s to low 90s. Saw a lot of leaf loss and unripe fruit rejection. Once temperatures got back down to mid-70s growth resumed and fruit started setting. Did not really start getting ripe fruit until mid to late September. All fruit was ripe by mid October. Between the two plants I got about 4 lbs of peppers, which I’m estimating more than 6000 peppers. Probably took me more 8 hours to pick both plants. Really neat looking plant and peppers pack a surprising amount of heat with really nice fruit and citrus notes. I’ve been pickling and dehydrating these so I can enjoy them all winter. Can’t wait until next year to grow more of these!
