MicroHarvest

Plucked one jalapeno 6/8, and the first poblano. The poblano was nowhere near the proper size, but it was showing vague shades of red…and we were having tacos for dinner, so decided I had better pluck it off.! Roasted both of them. The peppers tasted good, but the poblano had a bit of a green flavor (no surprise there). But definitely a touch of poblano-ey flavor in there.

Dwarf Varieties?

Dwarf Varieties?

Wondering if I purchased some kind of dwarf-fruit varieties of the peppers. They seem to be stuck in too-small mode.

Stats: 1 poblano, 19g; 1 jalapeno, 17g.

Update: plucked another jalapeno 6/11, 12g, just shy of 2″ long. I think that is the mature size for this particular jalapeno plant. This pepper was definitely “corking” and getting a bit of a red shade, meaning it was ready. I’m also now thinking that my “poblano” is likely some smaller variety. None of the peppers on the plant is getting any larger than 2-3″.

Plucked two more jalapenos 6/12, 37g total.

Seems to be mature size of my variety
