Default 1st pepper of 2018 ... Zone 5A

Indoor Jalapeno growing (3 plants in a 15 gallon pot).



... and 3 more are forming, each plant has at least 1 pepper so far. First harvest by the end of May maybe?

Disqualified, no indoor peppers allowed.

Wow, very nice. Are they overwintered? What kind of light are you putting on them?

Seed started on Jan 1st. They have been under T5 lights in 3-1/2 square x 6" deep pots until yesterday. 2 of the plants were topped and pruned once, one just left to grow as-is. The 2 topped plants have much thicker stems and are bushier, but all have peppers growing. The earliest pepper is on one the topped plants (maybe coincidence). The 1st flush of flowers were plucked, so these are peppers from the 2nd flush of flowers. Plant height is only 8-12". Nice root system.

Congrats, looks great. Last year I grew 3 padron plants in a 20 gallon container and they seemed to love it, plants got huge and were very productive. I am going to do more of the 3 of a kind per 20 gallon this year. A 15/20 gallon also stands up much better to thunderstorms, it's a win win!

Nice goin'! I've got a few little babies starting on the bucket-grown Gypsy I've overwintered. She goes outside on nice days. Lots of flowers I've hand pollinated when she's had to stay inside during cold spells. This year she goes out into the garden. Woo hoo! Freedom!
