Comments: Hot Pepper Cultivation

Quite a feat you've done in the short growing season of the Netherlands where gray clouds come too soon and the cold damp days make indoor cultivation a challenge! Best wishes w/ the new batch of chilli peppers!

Dear Sir, after reading your programme on the cultivation of pepper and my self I will like to undertake a similar project but on a large scale.
Your advise shall be highly appreciated,
Thanks for cooperation
Bye and cheers, Tanda

I have a question for you. Is a pepper which has matured by turning red less hot, as hot, or more hot than a green pepper. Thanks.

It seems to vary with different people. My batch of Jalapenos this year seemed to be hottest when I let them turn red. The ones I picked whilst green didnt seem to have as much heat. But overall I think the deciding factor is in the condition of the plant during growing and fruiting. Occasionally stressing the plant (eg letting it wilt a little before watering) seems to make more heat than otherwise.

Very informative.
Wish to know more about pepper - particularly about Bushy growing of pepper , preferably with images of bushy pepper growth.

how old dose a chilli plant have to be before it starts to produce peppers.
do you have to keep hot and sweet peppers apart when growing them
