First Harvest

Written by Chris on June 6th, 2009

Finally picked the first fruits of the season, 62 days after planting the seedling. Plucked five smallish jalapenos this evening. I had been waiting for them to get a bit larger, 2″ long or so, but they did not seem to be gaining much ground. And they were showing signs of “corking”–brownish “woody” spots and streaks–which I have read indicate they are ready. Plus I was tired of waiting to get something off my “food plants” (as my 4 yr old calls them)! Maybe removing these will give the ones left on the plant a boost.
