  Pointed pepper seeds  (Read 706 times)

I've got a question about pointed peppers. I'd like to grow my own this year, and I wonder if I can use the seeds from one of my bought pointed peppers.
   
The question is, if the sold sorts are hybrids. Seeds from hybrids often result in very random plants, unlike the parent plant. I don't know the word for the opposite of hybrid, but such plants can be regrown from their seeds with good results.
   
The pointed pepper in question s a high quality sort from Israel. But I have no sort name or such, just the country of origin.

Additional question: Some seeds won't sprout until after a period of cold. Do I have to put those seeds into the freezer for some days, to simulate winter?

Maybe there are some hobby garderners around who can help Smiley

Sorry, the only biology I know is genetic algorithms  Tongue

I'd do it just to see what happens. Peppers are peppers, and peppers are delicious.

I've got some other (bought) pepper seeds already in the earth, waiting for them to sprout. But I guess I'll try these too, as you said, just to see what happens. I don't have that much space to grow plants, though, must see.

Give them light, more the merrier. Sometimes give water.

When you have flowers, use a cotton swab to pollinate by gently touching from flower to flower.

Don't put them in freezer to simulate winter. Cheesy

Thanks! So I'll prepare another box with soil and try these too. I'm curious about the results Smiley

I hope my place will be warm enough. I just browsed the web to get more information, and it seems the biggest concern is warmth. I'll have them in pots on the south side of the house in front of the wall, that's the most I can give them.

There are small plastic boxes available for growing purposes, don't know the exact name for them but the idea is to keep small plant's temperature and humidity high enough.

Good luck with your project! Post some pics if you do not manage to kill them all. Smiley

Will do. I have good faith, at least growing tomatoes worked fine in the past years. Peppers are new for me, but a related plant, so there is a chance Smiley

The pepper seeds are still a bit shy, but I've spotted some first green tips where I have placed the baught pepper seeds from last week. So I hope they will start growing soon. The tomatoes are doing well so far, all eight of them. The seeds from the mentioned pointed pepper are in the soil since Tuesday and need some more time.

Some photos are over here, the text is in German, though:

I've improvised a mini-greenhouse with some clear foil. It seems to work so far.

Looks good!

Depends on a variety, some of them can be grow to very large. I'm afraid the soil space you have there for a one plant is not enough. When they grow a little bit you can move them in their own pots if needed.

The bell peppers finally are growing. The pointed peppers still don't show. Of the 8 tomato plants I've put 4 into their own pots now, and over the weekend I've started to dig a vegetable bed, but the soil seems to be the same sort like in my parents garden - it becomes hard like concrete if it dries out, and a very sticky mess if wet. And I have no compost yet, to improve it.

I'll see what happens. I'm planning with some yellow onions, the tomatoes, peppers, some chives, dill, parsley, basil, radish and some cucumbers.

The garden of my parents has been sold, and my mom is in nursing home since last year, that's why I'm trying to set up my own vegetable garden this year. Luckily the rent for the flat includes use of the garden. I'm missing experience with vegetables, in my parents garden I was responsible mostly for the berry bushes and fruit trees.

The photos from the blog are from Friday evening, meanwhile the bed is done and the peppers have grown a bit more.

It seems though that my hobby game projects won't make any progress during gardening season. But I wanted to get away from the computer since a while, so I think that's good.

Did you dry the seeds before planting?
Otherwise they will get moldy and die.

I've seeded two times, the second round should have been quite dry. The first, maybe not.

But the bell peppers needed 8 days to show, so I'd not expect the pointed peppers before Wednesday this week, the second seed not before the weekend. At the moment I just assume it's alright and just needs more time.
