Default Charleston Hot Pepper

A pot of Charleston Hot Peppers. At the yellow green stage now. Will turn to orange and then red. Extremely hot. Much hotter than a regular cayenne.
Makes great Cayenne pepper when allowed to dry at the red stage and ground.
Bred to be root knot nematode resistant. The foliage is always a pale green on this pepper.

Nice Peppers!
I like your pepper cages (and your peppers!)--what are you using?

This is 24 inch tall green PVC coated wire in the garden section of Lowe's Home Improvement or Home Depot.

I measure the wire so that it will fit on the inside of the pot. I cut up against the square so that there is a tab to bend back to make a cage.

Thanks, I'll take a closer look. I need something better than a tomato stake for my peppers.

If you are speaking on mine no.

But I could have, the ones last year still had live roots when I tried to pull them.

Are you going to be able to reach the peppers inside the cages? Your set up looks great and the peppers look great!

Hi Jon,
My seed source was Heavenly Seed - Anderson, South Carolina
http://www.heavenlyseed.net/products.asp?cat=17&pg=9
This is also my source for Choppee Okra.

I am sure I will be saving seed. PM me with your name and address and I will be glad to send you some.

I access most of them from the outside, but since it is only 2 feet tall I can reach in snare them if they are in the middle.

Those look great, when do you start them from seed and when do they go outside?
