I have a pepper vine that has been in the ground for approx 2 years and the plant is growing everywhere however there are no signs of flowers. Desperate for ideas.

I've just read that some pepper vines can take 3 - 4 years to fruit and that they need lots of dolomite in Spring.
Even though my pepper vine is in the house, it just dropped its leaves overnight with the first chill in the air.

This pepper plant doesn't appear to climb like the traditional climbing pepper vine. It throws out an inflorescence at every node.

Youre sitting on a gem there JohnMc1. Are you going to propagate some from it to see if it stays true to the parent plant?

It's not a one off Fay, my friend Lucy found it at a market stall up north somewhere.

Do you know what variety it is John? How does it handle the cold? I haven't got a hot house but I'm starting to think I should be getting one. I'd love to grow pepper because just a tiny amount will make the body absorb more nutrients.

Don't know variety, all I know is that it's not a climbing vine. My small greenhouse was heated so don't know how it handles cold. Too small to take cuttings just yet.
The berries germinate readily but I've given them all away. I'll send you a stick of ripe berries if you're keen? Prolly won't be ready till end of the year.

I'd like that John, thank you. I don't need too many though, as I'm sure there will be quite a few people wanting these.

How long does it take the pepper seedling to produce berries, JohnMc1?

Sorry Thao, I wasn't counting, probably a couple of months, I expect longer over winter. It is loaded with inflorescences now, so I'll keep you posted.

These are a few of the pepper seeds that germinated, they are now around 7 and a half months from planting.

Cuttings sprout pretty easily and often have roots already.I hack at mine to control it and sometimes bits going to the side form new plants of their own accord.None of my seeds seem to sprout.
