I have green pepper seeds drying on my kitchen window.

Do deer like peppers ?

I usually plant some garden spots for the deer too.

I know some will survive my winter outdoors but they usually die off a lot and there isn't much difference between ones that survive over winter and new ones i plant.

Please share your opinions.
Hi I have done. I started them indoors under lights then moved them out as soon as I could. I grew Helix Nebula and Ghost last year that way - yield was incredible. I fed them bat guano too as it goes.
It was quite odd seeing them in my indoor setup

Hey RC

Peppers are a lot like our favorite herb in that you can find a very special mother plant to clone and cross if that is your fancy.

Not all peppers will overwinter or clone well so keep that in mind.

How are your peppers doing ?

Good luck with your endeavors!

The two plants I showed in the previous post are on the left. Pics were taken this past march





To save space, I often trim the top and roots. There are seven plants in that 12"L x 5"W x 4" deep oval container below.

These weren’t overwintered but I started them way early, as a germ test, and just kept growing them under flouros. Put them outside a couple of weeks ago and they got burnt up a bit, didn’t shelter or harden them off enough. Notice the new growth at the lower nodes in the silhouettes of the larger plants. Sorry, not the best picture.

I’ll do some pruning once they get going a little more and eventually put them in the ground. Caribbean Reds.

Does anyone know how to keep them from fuiting/ making flowers? Besides pinching off the flowers?

I'm planning on popping some jalapeño, anaheim and bells soon. The last time I did this indiors was last year, and they grew about a foot, started fruiting/ making flowers and didn't really grow much taller.

My intent is to grow them as big as possible, and delay flowering, because it seems that flowering stunts growth as it makes them focus energy on making fruit. I want a pepper bush/trees when I transplant outside in May.

jalapeno don't overwinter, others do. some just fruit all winter if you keep them warm and light. my helix nebula did ok, just went dormant but it had done year outside so big enough i didn't want it bigger., not in my kitchen lol
