First Cayenne Pepper Harvest

20090823 - Cayenne Peppers

This week­end we har­vested the first round of pep­pers from our cayenne plant. This plant is insane! Pictured are roughly 35 pep­pers. A few weeks ago we pulled maybe 5 – 10 ripe pep­pers for some salsa. We’ve also been using greens ones from time to time so I would guess that we’ve pulled maybe 50 pep­pers off this plant. After this har­vest I counted 70 more pep­pers still on the plant! Plus, there are 10 – 15 buds or new growths. For one plant that started out about 4 – 5″ tall, we are very satisfied!

    Ha! I’ve got a lit­tle pep­per plant that was brought over on the boat with Vinny’s fam­ily. (Well, I’ve got some of it any­way) That thing cranks out pep­pers year around. It’s insane! I’d like to grow a cou­ple dif­fer­ent types soon.

    I wish we were neigh­bors so we could have a pep­per swap — I have a thai red chili plant that is about to absolutely APESHIT with pep­pers. The poor lit­tle branches can’t even sup­port them all — they’re just buck­ling under the weight.

      oh man, i wish the same thing! i want some thai chiles! our plant was doing the same thing, falling over to the point we had to get a stake to hold it upright.

    I just found your blog through a search for cayenne pep­pers. Great job — now I’m read­ing through it!

    I’m doing a decal for one of my effects ped­als — it’s called the Red Pepper Fuzz. I’d like to use your cayenne image on the decal. I don’t do this com­mer­cially — I gen­er­ally do a few small runs for friends. I wanted to get your ok to use the photo. I will give you photo credit on my blog (and a link to yours) when the pedal is done. Could you please let me know one way or the other?
