Black Chile Peppers, Capsicum annuum,Chili Piquin, Pring-Kee-New, or Grove pepper - Seeds-Organically Grown
Iâm not talking about rodent poop, but rather an unusual, rare, and ornamental variety of hot peppers that are called Ratâs Turds. Also known as Turkey Chile Peppers, Chilipiquin, Pring-Kee-New, or Grove pepper
Good Reasons to Plant Turkey Hot Chile Peppers in the Garden
This compact growing plant that works well as a potted edible. Itâs a very attractive specimen, especially when adorned with its tiny jet black or dark purple fruits that change to a brilliant red color as they ripen. If you want to grow Rat Turds directly in the garden keep in mind that the plant is a dwarf pepper so donât place it in the middle of other pepper plants where it could be shaded or crowded out. The dwarfing size turns into a big advantage in the fall, thatâs when potted plants can easily be moved indoors before frost to extend the harvest or to over winter them!
Rat Turds are extremely productive with fruit spread all over the branches of the plant. The peppers also hold well both before and after they ripen which means that you can always have fresh peppers on hand when you need them in the kitchen,and Donât Frown Upon these Rat Turds in the Kitchen Either.
This is without a doubt a very hot and spicy pepper, but it also has a nice flavor to lend to your favorite recipes. The small fruit size is a plus for me because a whole Rat Turd is just about right for kitchen recipes without being overpowering or adding too much heat in comparison to cooking with larger jalapeÃ±os or habaneras.
Rat Turds will keep well under refrigeration, or even better, they are a cinch to dry for extended storage, or to use in making your own organic crushed pepper flakes. I used an electric dehydrator but they would also dry well on a screen or in solar dehydrator.
So there you have plenty of reasons to head for the kitchen rather than the exterminator when you encounter Rat Turds in the vegetable garden!
Peppers, like tomatoes, grow in well-drained fertile soil
Almost all peppers have the same requirements for successful growth. Plant them in good, well-drained, fertile soil â and make sure they get lots of sunlight and a good inch of water per week. In many ways, they mimic the same requirements needed for growing great tomatoes.
At Planting Time:
We plant all of our peppers with a good shovel full of compost in the planting hole, and then give them a good dose of compost tea every few weeks for the first 6 weeks of growth. We also mulch around each of our pepper plants with a good 1 to 2â³ thick layer of compost.
All pepper varieties are Heirloom and/or OP(Open Pollinated.) and Organically Grown
Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel germination testing, they can take long. I am not sure why, but it is a normal occurrence. So plan and make sure you start them early enough! Also, remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since it is normally warmer up there.
Peppers do very well grown in pots.
