About

Background:
Back in the 90’s I thought jalapenos were hot, and ate lots of them during that time. That was before peppers got really popular, and Habaneros were hard to come by. A couple decades later I moved to an area where I could grow stuff. I bought five plants from Lowes. These were Cayenne, Thai, Jalapeno, Serrano and Habanero. Those plants grew and produced. I remember eating my first Habanero pod off of my plant, and it felt like my face was going to melt off. That fall I started buying SFRBs (small flat rat box) of super hot pods from other growers, and was hooked. I saved seed from some pods, and bought some seeds online, and started growing my first pepper crop from seed in 2014. I’ve learned a lot from my successes and failures since. I still consider myself a novice grower, but I apply what I learn each year to improve. I also like to experiment with new growing methods, and seek ways to improve efficiency while cutting costs.

Pepper info is my hub for videos, articles, pictures, and all other pepper related content. I aim to share successes, failures and other gained knowledge transparently to serve as a reference and resource for those interested in pepper growing, eating and culture.

Pepper info has or will have the following type of content:

  • Grow updates showing the progress of my current year garden, as well as experimental projects
  • How-to DIY tutorials related to pepper growing, processing, etc…
  • Kratky method (non-circulating) hydroponics
  • Other hydroponic methods, such as Deep Water Culture (DWC)
  • Pepper pod reviews
  • Sauce and product reviews
  • Recipes
  • Pepper news
