Hey, I grow habaneros and jalapenos, and have never had any problems that i didn't directly cause. now i am trying to grow something that is insanely productive, and i thought, tabasco might work. it's moderately hot, and every picture i've seen has the plant loaded with fruit. my habeneros are my favorite, but they just dont produce as many as i want, and thats with about 10 plants. i need more, as i turn them into powder and a big bushel of fresh fruit becomes a small vial of powder. so unless someone can tell me of a habanero strain that produces peppers like it was the last plant on earth trying to repopulate its species, i am going to try tabascos. one problem though, my variety (more of a cousin) has never germinated. I am trying peat pellets this time, about 5 seeds to a pellet, hopefully one will germinate. How long have you observed it to take to get tabascos and their close relations to germ? but if someone knows of an extremely high yield habanero i'd like that info too. as it is now i have grown the red and the orange habies, once i started eating these i gave up on all other peppers because they're so good. it's just that the production seems to be about 10 peppers per plant per season, and that is a complete travesty, i am still buying more than i grow.
