With pepper germination patience is a must. It has been three weeks since I started my sweet peppers and some came up after a week and others are still popping up. Pre soaking is a good idea, as is the baggy method. I used the latter to sprout 10 year old seeds. The rate of success was not great but I have 3 seedlings of Kurtovska Kapija (aka Ajvarska) popping up. Good luck.

With limited knowledgea bout Kansas weather, by its general geographic location, I would expect a zone 5 climate. Given that winters are cold, how do you pick which peppers will survive in the green house? Or is your GH heated??

(Would love fresh pepper all winter if possible.)

We're 6a here. Yes the greenhouse is heated. I use an electric heater when it's really cold but most of the time I use big oil lamps made for heating greenhouses plus a fan to circulate the heat. I have tropical hibiscus is the reason for the heated greenhouse. Otherwise I probably wouldn't heat it just for peppers.

This year I'm growing:

1 Blight Buster - a freebie from last year that made the first good sized bell I've ever grown. There were only two seeds left in the pack.

1 Feher Ozon paprika - first time with this and doing just one to see how well it does here. Want to make my own paprika powder.

2 Gypsy plus the one overwintered one

1 Jalapeno M - New variety to me. One plant usually provides all the jalapenos I need for pickled slices, poppers and a few frozen ones.

1 Jupiter and 1 Keystone Resistant - Trialing these bells for heat and humidity tolerance as well as production since bells don't typically do well for me. In this area the cubanelle types do much better but I'm not giving up hope on bells yet.

1 Korean Dark Green - This heirloom is supposedly one grown in an area of Korea noted for their hot pepper flakes that go into making kimchee. Again, I'd like to make my own flakes for my kimchee.

1 Maule's Red Hot cayenne - for cayenne powder

The peppers are up and under the lights. They're in order of height as some took a lot longer to come up than others and I have the light slanted to try to keep a 2" distance above the plants. Some of the seeded tomato pots are in the foreground.




The first hummingbird came to the porch feeder Monday! Right on time as with other years. It's amazing how consistent their arrival is each year. Yesterday there were two at the feeder so Spring is officially here.

Looking good GoDawgs! I received the free packet of Blight Buster pepper seeds too but couldn't find much info about it so I decided not to try it. Maybe next year just to see how it does even though I am not a real fan of bell peppers.

I grew Feher Ozon a couple years back, I seem to never get around to making powder.
It did well for me and it's also very pretty! Here is a pic of it I posted , #20.

Happy growing!

I just planted a tray of superhots. I took the pic before covering them up. Naga Viper is the tag on the back right that is partially obscured.

You are germinating super hots now? Wow, I did start mine way to early, but I have a couple trays that look Awsum. Went to get a pic but the timer shut off the lights. Film at eleven.

I have learned from previous years not to start early. My greenhouse gets too cold at night, and they suffer. My seeds do start very quickly in a small room under a 1,000 watt metal halide light, so I never have the common experience of waiting weeks for seed to germinate. I also don't grow plants inside very long. If they get any sun burn at all, people won't buy them. If the sun would ever come out, my greenhouse will be 90-100 degrees during the day, and they grow very quickly.

The first superhots in the tray pictured earlier are poking up. I didn't put them under the light under the next day after I made that post, so I am getting sprouts at about six days....not too shabby. It has been cold this week, so it is a little colder inside, or I think they would have sprouted a day or so earlier.

I have about 2 ounces of pepper seed from many different varieties. I'm intending to direct seed it about 10 days before out last expected frost. Sure would be nice to find something that could grow without transplanting.
