Audrey starts with ...
A friend gave me a pot of cayenne pepper, a type of chilli. I have repotted it in a larger pot.

Recently noticed that some of the leaves are developing yellow blotches and streaks especially along the vein network.

Does anyone who grows chillies have this similar problem? Is it a particular nutrient lack?

:) Know this is a fruit tree forum but would appreciate any advice!

Thanks!

Is that potassium?

I have been feeding it seasol which contains potassium and phosphorus upon repotting and have given it Yates Multi Nutrient Plant food last week, which has manure, blood and bone, fish emulsion and seaweed which provide nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus. All diluted according to instructions.

It is so strange that the leaves are like that...

The people who look after this forum techniquely should look at the script and see why there are few responses but the thread said 0 reponse and as the result it got into 'NO ANSWER AREA' which is untrue.

This is a technical error.

Yes, you need both a male and female. I planted 14 last year and all are growing - some much better than others(up to 40cm growth). Of the 14 I am hoping 2 are males.

Suzanne, NO, You don't need 2 plants for your Carob to fruit! ... What you DO Need is a variety which has both male & female in the one plant. You could always 'play it safe' by getting a Male & Female plant anyway.(that's what I'd Do.) (just make sure that they're one of Each & NOT 2 males or 2 females!) ,,, I have never grown Carob,so I'm really guessing. What do others say? Go by Them.

Nothing to be concerned about! I Grow Chilli's & have encountered this too. It can be several things. From your photo's,it looks like you have them in the wrong position. Move into a sheltered Partial Sun position,(remembering that they DO Need the sun.) STOP using Any Sprays & Fertilizers on & around them & just watch them.You've got some leaf burn too. Is that a Hydroponic Set Up they're in? If it is, your nutrient mix could be wrong(or too strong)for the plant. Try Feeding with Seasol,or Osmocote/Yates Slow realease pellets,(Yates IS the Better one.) OR,,If you can get hold of cow & chicken-shit,put into a drum add water & stir then cover. Wait at least a week before use.(the Longer You leave it,the better). Use on Anything Except Ferns(&'Delicate plants)& Citrus. A Great All-Rounder from the Good Old Days!

This thread is rather confusing to me now. We have carobs and chillies. Are they similar plants.

Mark, are you replying to my question? I think I have solved the problem with the yellowing leaves with feedings of Aquasol. I am quite sure now that it is some missing nutrient in the potting mix. The chilli plant has since thrived and turned back to dark green and fruiting a lot.

It is in a regular potting mix which I have also recently added worm castings.

Attached recent photo.

Thanks for your advice!

Au0rey,, I was answering Both questions,about the Carob & the Chilli, so "Yes,I was answering you." Carob's & Chilli's are Different families so NO,they are not similar plants.( I have been wrong before,so if I am now I welcome being corrected by Anyone.) Glad you solved the problem with your Chilli's. I suppose you know that they are supposed to ripen to a Bright Red,but can be picked at the Green stage too.(Not as Hot though when only Green.) Chilli Plants come in a variety of colours,Green,Yellow,Orange,Red,Purple,almost Black,even Brown! One tip for Eating Chillies... The Smaller they are,the 'Hotter'they are!

Hi there,
Is anyone on this thread discussion growing the following varieties ? Naga Morich, Dorset Naga , Bih Jolokia ,Trinidad Scorpoion ,Scotch Bonnet and Bhut Jolokia. I have all these plants growing in pots and some have flowers but no chillies yet . These chilli varieties are meant to be the hottest in the world with the Bhut Jolokia officially being recognised as the hottest of all by the guiness book of records.Apart from fruit trees growing chillies is also a favourite past time of mine eventhough I don't eat them but rather give them away.

Hi Mark, yes the cayenne pepper is a type of chilli (as the photos show). THey do turn red when ripen. I have got more than 20 green ones growing very well right now after treating with aquasol and worm casting.

I am also trying to germinate some chilli padis (tiny chillies which are very spicy) but so far after 10 days, no sign yet.

I also have a Nellie Kelly Hot chilli (see photo) which is doing very well.Very stout plant with loads of hot chillies. I think chilli plants love organic matter such as worm casting.

Michael, I do not have any of the varieties you have. Yeah I love chillies and love growing them. They are not only ornamental but useful in food. :)

Michael,

I have a thread on about growing peppers but it's in another forum .

As for all the varieties of peppers you've mentioned I've only managed to get some Dorset Naga seeds sometimes ago .
I've planted mine before last Dec. but it is growing so SLOW . It's not even 30cm yet . haven't seen any flower . But I dont know lately I don't trust EBAY that much, since I had a few fumbles with quite a few of its SELLER .
Due to the seeds are not what they said they are, or due to the poor quality of the seeds, as I get germination rate = 0

But anyway, at the time I was searching for the hottest quality of peppers, as I loves to use them for the cuisines .
I managed to get some seeds from the hot peppers from this one Asian shop, they're advertising that It's an Indian chillies, and that it's extremely hot.
Over the summer it grown quite well, and fruited . Take a look

But I found the level of spiciness is not hot enough to my taste, and the chilli perfume from it goes straight up to your nostril and wind pipe, enough to almost choke the living day light out of you . I decided to keep it for ornamental purpose only . Also the scents from this chillies is not like those of the Thai's chilli, it ruined the taste of the food too.

Hi Ellen,
The chillies in picture 1 looks like the Orange Habanero or maybe the Fatali variety which is meant to be extremly hot with a heat reating of 10+ .Do you know the exact variety ?

The Indian Rajah in picture 2 has a heat rating of 9 and is meant to be also very hot . These type of chillies are best used in curries and hot sauces and not really for cuisines. The Thai chillies although not as hot in heat rating are more versatile in bringing out the spiciness in asian style cooking.

I'm an advid collector of chilli plants and so far have over 50 varieties but not the ones in your picture. If you ever want to sell these chillies in picture 1 and picture 2 then please let me know .I'm assuming you live in Smithfield Sydney ? I can pay a good price or swap with you any other varieties from my collection including the Thai birds eye . Do let me know if you are interested.
Many Thanks

Hi Michael,


Like I said, the variety you see in picture 1, I got the seed from an Asian grocery shop, I was using for cooking and saved some seeds left over from it, and planted it the season after and that was what I ended up with this summer .

As for the variety in Picture 2, I find it not true to it's name at all . Bunnings labelled it as Chilli Fire, and at the BonniRigg Garden Centre they've labelled it as Rajah -Indian Chilli . The heat level I find it's only 6 -7 only, not true at all to what it had graded as a 9, so yes it's only good for stir-fry, or making sauces, or hot and sour soup Tom Yum .

I tell you what Michael, I still have a few of the Rajah's plants in little pots, you 're welcome to one if you like . The one you see in the picture #2 I've potted it in a 600mm - this one I am preparing it for moving in 2 months .

As for the Yello Habanero, all those chilli fruit has ripen and ripped apart due to over riped, if you want, you may have one, bring a pot for it.

Do you have Bhut Jolokia, I am after the hottest chilli in the world, I don't like birds eyes they're not as hot as the one I have .

Hi Ellen,
If you are still near by after your move and can wait till spring time I can give you one of the following plants which are all over 10+ in heat rating.

Bih Jolokia - Just as hot as the Bhut if not hotter

Dorset Naga

Chocolate Hab

White Hab

Tasmanian Hab

Red Hab

Naga Morich

I can give you seeds for the scotch bonnet or trinidad scorpion.

Any one of these chilli variety can be fatal to the non chilli eaters with the Bih,Naga and Dorset Naga being the hottest.My brother in law tried a slice of the Bih Jolokia on his salad and vomited straight away due to the extreme heat level.

I am driving down to Canberra this Easter to pick up a large Bhut as my seedling died from a slug infestation . I'm hoping to have it full of chillies by spring time and you are more than welcome to have the seeds from the chillies. They can be quite expensive with some sites selling them for $1 a seed.

Hi Michael,
I love to plant chillies but I have not heard of all those names. Would it be possible to buy some seeds off you for the some of the above- Nagas, Bih, Choc Hab. Probably too cool now to try growing seeds. I have a Rocotoco chilli seeds and some curry tree seeds/plant if it is of any interest to you.
Thanking you

Hi Evelyn,
If you search the names of these chillies you will find that they are extremly hot with anyone having a heat rating of 10+ or even 10+++. I don't have seeds right now but I can give you some for free once the plants are big enough which will be around spring time. In the meantime if you want to buy seeds from a reliable source then please refer to the link below . I get the majority of my seeds from him and the success rate is 95%. I've also been to his place on the central coast and his property is like a chilli garden paradise with every hot chilli you can think of eating.

Thanks Michael,
I will wait till Spring. I am amazed at your collection of plants and how you can manage them with your travelling. Caterpillars ate half my kaffir Lime and lettuces when I am away for a couple of days. Trying to look after the new plants from Daleys will keep me busy thro this winter. Do you want any Rocotoco seeds? Please drop me your address at efsyeung@hotmail.com and I can send them off.

Hi Ellen,
I'm back from my Canberra trip and picked up some really hot chilli plants. If your offer for the yellow habanero and rajah still stands then I would like to pick them up this weekend as I don't get home until dark on weekdays. I will send an email to your private email address to confirm. I picked up an additional Dorset Naga plant for you from Canberra and would you also like a Red Habanero plant as well ?

Hey all chilli specialists out here! Winter is here and this is my chilli plants' first winter! I am not sure how well they survive winter. Can anyone tell me if it is normal for their leaves to become like this (in pics)? Is this a reaction to the cold?? Thanks!!

Hi
Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I didn't want to start a new one...

Does anyone know where I can buy or source some Naga Jolokia (or any of the other extremely hot chillis) seeds in Adelaide?

If anyone could personally provide me with a small amount of seed I would be happy to compensate them for their time, but would prefer to buy the seeds from a store if possible.

Thanks
Paul

Hi Evelyn - ( From the previous post above)

If you are still interested I can send you some Orange Habanero chillies and either a Naga Morich or Bhut Jolokia ( I can't tell the difference between the two ). I also have the Dorset Naga but have given it all away. It's in flower at the moment though. You can collect the seeds from the chillies and plant it yourself. These chillies are extremely rare especially the Bhut/Naga and Dorset. People are selling the seeds on Ebay for like a dollar a seed.

Does anyone have any of the following chillies they would like to swap with me? I have Red ,Orange and Chocolate Habanero, White Peruvian Habanero ,Brazilian Starfish,Dorset Naga , either a Naga Morich or Bhut Jolokia .

I am after the Trinidad Scorpion , 7 Pod/Pot or Fatali chillies. I am looking to swap fresh pods not seeds.
