Earthbox Pepper Update

Written by Chris on May 12th, 2010

Peppers are coming along well. All are producing except for the poblanos. Looks like I will have mini-jalapenos again. Was hoping for the big size peppers you see in the grocery stores these days–3 to 4 inches long. Next season I will have to seek out some seeds like that.

  1. I love peppers! The very first plants I grew from seed a few years ago were peppers. I grew them in the balcony of my apartment only to lose them slowly to storms and bugs. However, a couple of years ago I grew jalapeños in the ground and I got them to grow as big as the store-bought ones. Last year I grew them in a home made sub-irrigated container and I only got the little ones like you mention. This year I am growing them again in containers but i am growing multiple varieties to see if I can recognize the type that grew big.
    You are a couple of months ahead of me on your peppers!

      Interesting. Will be awaiting pictures on your blog showing your pepper results! I have to believe it’s due to the variety grown and not the growing location…

    What is the deal with the small jalapeños? Mine were the same way. I think maybe trying them in the ground might be the solution.
