BackYard Peppers,1998 International capsicum grow out: Numerous varities of chile peppers from around the world. Many not depicted here. One of the "Stand Outs" a large chile pepper plant behind me is a South American Capsicum baccatum named Chapeu de Frade USDA seed #497974. It was the largest specimen in the midwest with record breaking yields of 3,294 fruits for one growing season in zone 6A. The foilage mass reached ten feet tall by fifteen feet wide. Large potted specimen towards my right originated on the Galapagos Islands, C. galapagoense USDA seed #GRIF1567 grew to be five foot tall and five feet wide with hundreds of small berry like fruits (hot). At my feet is the datil pepper, C. chinese variety grown for three centuries in St. Augustine, Florida. Out and about down the fence are specimens from America, Brazil, Mexico and Peru. ------------- The greatest service which can be rendered any country is to add a useful plant to its culture - Thomas Jefferson. Fellow Chile aficionado's, my name is Robert. I will be your host as you peruse through the new Bhut Jolokia Chile Pepper Project and more website. Please be patient as this website is still in development. There will be bi-weekly photographic additions with commentary. Hopefully they will aid you in your Red Hot Chile pursuits. What is the Bhut Jolokia Project? This project is a consorted effort to bring the worlds hottest chile pepper into the midwest and then disseminate them throughout the regional states. Photographs in the website will supply ample documentation to prove that Bhut Jolokia did in fact thrive, flourish and produce extremely large yields in one season in zone 6 2007. Now, from here and out whatever you have read or been told about Bhut Jolokia being a dismal growing chile plant with poor fruit yields etc,... I suggest you hold off on that information. It has been reported via the internet that only certain growing regions on the Asian continent provide the ideal climates for Bhut Jolokia to flourish. This sounds like a voice from a spice monopoly. If you are an experienced capsicum chinese chile grower with ready access to a vegetable bedding green house operation then mass producing Bhut is a strong possibility in your favor. Our Bhut Jolokia Project is a thoroughly thought out and complete growing program. One that is ecologically sound and having been put to the test both in soil and potting culture. This entire system has been utilized for well over a decade on numerous capsicum open pollinated species. Over the years we took into consideration struggling small scale organic chile pepper growers with limited resources. Shortages such as finances, productive soil, water, natural fertilizers and unfavorable climates etc,... Most developing countries encounter at least one of these deficiencies. Consequently much effort was devoted to decrease costs, minimize waste and utilizing non toxic recycled materials. This included building small scale inexpensive greenhouses from mostly discarded materials and hardware. These self-imposed constraints contributed to much ingenuity. Results from these intensive chile pepper projects can be a model for thousands of other small scale growers here and abroad. Once again for 2008 I have implemented the same successful growing program that brought the original Bhut Jolokia into fruitation. So sit back and enjoy the scenery. I'll be getting back soon.
