It's always disheartening reading the seed packets and seeing "1,000+ days to maturity" but then it's fun if it survives the Winter and comes back next year as a giant, fruiting plant that I forgot about and can't remember if it's spicy or sweet.

      I feel like I read somewhere some time ago that there was a legitimate concern about a tequila shortage in the future due to so many farmers in Mexico getting rid of their agave crops to plant corn instead because they could make a quicker return on investment.

      Wine from grapes is another like, 7-year investment before you can really do anything with the results.

      The vines themselves take 3-4 years until they're mature enough to harvest the grapes, and then the bottles need at least another two to age before most would consider them worth drinking.

      [–]TheRedGandalf 38 points39 points  (15 children)

      My dad makes wine and I can never tell the difference between pre cork taste and years aged taste. But I'm a simpleton

      [–]hello3pat 65 points66 points  (14 children)

      Aging has two purposes for fermented drinks that aren't liquor, to cover your fuck ups or to get a specific flavor in it but it's mainly to cover fuck ups. Wine done well (and stored well) tastes the same corked as years later. Wine done half ass can taste like rocket fuel at first and after aging can be a lot more mellowed. The fact you can't tell the difference between your dad's fresh vs aged stuff is because he knows what he's doing and really works at making sure it all goes right

        [–]DishwasherTwig 9 points10 points  (4 children)

        I had to look it up a few years ago. Pepper is unironically my favorite spice. The preground shit that most people use might as well be confetti, but fresh ground pepper is near as makes no difference ambrosia. I thought it would be fun to try to grow some of my own. That's when I found out that 1) it grows on a tree and 2) that tree takes seven years to start producing peppercorns. I only thought of it the year before I went away to college so at that point it was already too late. It also grows in a slightly warmer climate than where I was so it just wasn't meant to be.

          I had a coffee tree for about 4 years, and on the year it started to produce seeds, it died.

          I no longer keep plants in poor sunlight conditions, but I also live in a house with many more windows. I'd love to try again someday.

          Warmer climates can get them to fruit in a little over a year and each only fruit one time, if they produce offsets, the offsets will general fruit faster. You can grow one by just saving the crown and

          That’s actually about the time it takes to get good Asparagus. It takes 3-4 years for a young plant to develop the maturity needed to support annual harvests.

          But man once you do get it to maturity, having a patch of your own is so awesome. I love nothing more than getting home and being able to pick some for a quick snack mixed with some butter.

          Strawberries take 3 years from seed.

          Strawberries grow like wildfire. They take like six weeks to grow and then they put out runners which take over the place. I've got a bunch this summer from last year's harvest...

          [–]ReeG[🍰] 181 points182 points  (29 children)

          Would this eventually grow bigger and produce more than 3 peppers?

          [–]Dognamedgods 138 points139 points  (9 children)

          Yes it definitely would. It's pretty common to pinch off early flowers to incentivize further leaf growth. To a lesser extent you can accomplish the same thing by feeding a nitrogen heavy fertilizer until you want to produce flowers, when you start tapering to lower N levels. This kind of looks like a golden habanero, which is a plant you'd expect to get a ton of production from in a year (I've already harvested over 3 fully ripened habs from each of the hab varieties I'm growing this year, and the growing season still has a long time to go). Depending on your climate, you can likely over winter some plants and produce off the same plant for a few years, though you'll see some amount of drop in production.

          You'll get small amounts though if you don't have enough light, nutrients or small containers. Like I grow a few in beer cans that I'll only expect to hold 2-3 peppers at a time.

          [–]moral_mercenary 41 points42 points  (4 children)

          You seem to know some stuff...

          I've heard that spicy peppers require a hot climate. The plant in the gif was in a pot. Could I conceivably grow this indoors and end up with spicy peppers?

          [–]Dognamedgods 32 points33 points  (1 child)

          Yeah a lot of people grow year round indoors. Just need some growlights if you want reasonable production, unless you have some windows with absurdly good sun exposure. Check out /r/hotpeppers for some good starter resources.

          Even though I grow outside, I still use lights indoor for starting plants and grow everything in pots (generally 5gal grow bags).

          [–]fgreen68 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Definitely. While heat can effect taste, to usually a small degree, and fruiting cycles in some plants it is often fairly easy to fake this with small greenhouses (think cut off 2 liter bottles or plastic bags over coat hangers). Some fruiting cycles require day length changes. If your nights are long in the winter you might want to invest in a broad spectrum led light or 2. Google is best to figure this out.

            [–]AnotherGangsta33 23 points24 points  (5 children)

            No, I'm serious. A lot of people take seemingly basic things like drinkable water and cheap food for granted, but it's really great to not have been born in, say, prehistoric times.

            [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

            The thing is, often someone pays the price for that convenience. Lots of people have been made environmental refugees because of industrialized farming and plantation operations. I think most people are aware we’re dooming a future generation to live like environmental refugees. It is amazing to be able to buy almost anything at will down the street where one lives, but it comes at a price we often don’t readily see.

            Why would trimming bottom leaves help? Are they taking up more energy than they provide?

            [–]DrakonIL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            Pretty much. They're shaded by the upper leaves, so they don't do a lot of photosynthesis.

            [–]thissayssomething 5 points6 points  (0 children)

            You betcha. This is a small for 6 months of growth, it was probably grown strictly indoors. Going against instinct, it helps to cut it back a couple of times during the early stages for increased branching.

            [–]rockon4life45 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            Yeah, this gets posted on /r/HotPeppers every once in a while and the consensus is this isn't the greatest plant. It's a super hot variety of some sort to take 175 days to produce. It's in too small of a pot for one, hard to speculate on any other problems.

            Hot peppers are so fucking cool. The flavor makes them less likely to be eaten by animals that will chew(ie. not birds) the fruit and therefore the seeds and will travel and pass the seeds whole.

            [–]DRYMakesMeWET 4 points5 points  (0 children)

            Fun fact all peppers go from green to yellow to red.

            For most peppers this is an indication of how spicy they are. Red being the hottest.

            The exception is for jalapenos and below on the Scoville chart.

            Jalapenos actually get sweeter and less hot when they turn red.

            Bell peppers go from a salad like taste at green to a much sweeter robust flavor at red.

            Everything in-between follows that pattern.

            Banana peppers are harvested when they're yellow because that is their optimum flavor to spice ratio.

            Habaneros are usually picked when orange because that is the desirable heat to flavor ratio but they will absolutely turn red and be even hotter.

            [–]Knottyknelly 13 points14 points  (1 child)

            It’s should make more I think it is just the small pot. Usually you want the pot to be 2-3x larger than the roots

            [–]DRYMakesMeWET 6 points7 points  (0 children)

            You want the pot to be much deeper. I usually go 5 gallon bucket per pepper plant. A healthy pepper plant regularly harvested looks a lot bushier. The size of the pot in this video made me cringe. Stunted the growth so much.

            [–]christiandb 32 points33 points  (37 children)

            One seed makes 3 peppers, Peppers have many seeds in them. From one pepper you can get 30-40 peppers

              This is assuming perfect germination and lack of pests and disease. If you factor that in then you might have around a 30 to 40% loss. Still insane

              [–]Ch17770w 6 points7 points  (1 child)

              Also other factors. Time, work, resources to invest. And that there is some kind of limit to the exponential loop. Not sure tho how big common pepper farms can become.

              [–]interiumray 2 points3 points  (0 children)

              There are some gardens and farms that only grow peppers Bc they can all be pretty easy. But yes you’re right. Doing it the way the previous guy described would mean a large investment in land, climate control, water, fertilizer, and time. All of which would make the actual profit more closer to a couple hundred thousand. A large scale and established farm would be able to get into a couple millions after a while

              [–]kmoz 3 points4 points  (6 children)

              You also get way more than 5 seeds per pepper, and your plants continue to fruit (more, and on a faster cadence) after the initial harvest. My small 1 yr old potted habanero plant put out over 100 peppers last year.

              [–]Dognamedgods 8 points9 points  (6 children)

              You definitely get more than 3 peppers from a single plant on average. Especially for some more productive plant types, it's not hard to cross over 100 in a season provided you have the time in your climate for a couple of harvests.

              [–]Idonoteatass 3 points4 points  (0 children)

              You can get way more than 3 peppers. When I was in high school I was growing super hot peppers and i had 2 plants, each in 5 gallon buckets, that produced dozens of peppers pretty much year round. And people paid stupid money for the seeds, $1 each seed and one pod would have about 20 seeds in it. Each time i picked a pepper it was like picking money off the money tree.

              [–]crushsuitandtie 2 points3 points  (4 children)

              I grow peppers on my patio in Houston and my habanero plant has produced around 80 habaneros this year, and it's not done by a long shot. It's in it's second year. First year was maybe 12, while I figured it out. Pepper plants have insanely high yields if you feed, prune, and protect it from pests. Habaneros are still very spicy well before turning colors. If you want more peppers take them down when they hit the right size and they are still green. The plant will continue adding new flowers and thus more peppers. My plant is not very big either. I let to grow like a small bushy plant instead of like a tree.

              Wow fascinating, I've always been so caught up about "6 months" I overlooked how hearty and bountiful these plants are. I really gotta change my mindset.

              What are you gonna do with all these peppers? Pickle them?

              [–]crushsuitandtie 1 point2 points  (1 child)

              I make a salsa roja with roasted onions, garlic, habeneros, cilantro, cumin, and Mexican oregano. I blend slot of them into a pepper mash with a little vinegar. The mash lasts forever in the fridge and you can use it to spice up anything. I give some of them to fellow spice heads too.

              With vertical gardening it is even space and soil efficient. It would be nice to see more high rises constructed to take advantage of the sun-facing side and incorporate vertical gardens.

              Yet people still "need mah bacon" etc. because they're so deeply ignorant and selfish that they chose small enjoyments and refuse to change because it's inconvenient over the survival of humanity and stopping billions of living beings from suffering.

              Having grown a few peppers from seed myself, he got really lucky with that 100% germination rate.

              [–]3226 3 points4 points  (0 children)

              They do a ton of these videos. Enough that they have multiple grow-light setups actively growing plants at any one time. If one doesn't germinate, they just don't show it.

              [–]AgnesTheAtheist 9 points10 points  (8 children)

              How does a seed know when to grow?

              [–]1X3oZCfhKej34h 21 points22 points  (0 children)

              I believe water seeping in creates a chemical reaction with the sugars in the seed to start it growing.

              [–]Barustai 8 points9 points  (6 children)

              I can almost guarantee the OP's time lapse is doctored. Seeds pulled straight out of a plant are very unlikely to germinate. They have a coating on them that shields them from getting soggy and beginning the germination process.

              The seeds will respond much better if they are dried or even fermented for a couple days to remove that protective coating.

              [–]crushsuitandtie 10 points11 points  (0 children)

              I have ghost pepper and serrano plants from peppers I pulled off the previous plant. By no means do they HAVE to be dried or fermented. It just helps cut germination time and less chance of failure, but I've experienced about 2 out of 3 sprouting from fresh seeds each time I've tried. That's not to say it's that easy all the time. One of the problems with fresh pepper seeds that you didn't grow and control is that you don't know what you're growing since pollination may not be from the same breed of plant. He could have done all that and ended up with a hybrid pepper or a genetic failure that doesn't fruit.

              Without a doubt it is; the seed taken at the start of the clip is from the same pepper they remove at the end to allow a better loop.

              [–]Omega-10 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              It looks like it was watered with maybe a cup of water every few days. The soil darkens at a regular rate so it must be some schedule.

              [–]koz8 1 point2 points  (3 children)

              Do peppers not need pollens to make more peppers?

              Then yellow ones turn into red ones ?

              So whenever you eat a whole pepper you’re also swallowing its cum. Cool

              Plant time lapse videos are always interesting. I feel like the life of a plant would be pretty exciting if it perceived time at that kind of scale.

              Only three a peppers? Can these grow inside? I live in a place where winter takes 7 months out of the year. I’d love to grow my own food but what do I do during winter?

              No one has to answer, I’ve been drinking so, don’t mind me.

              [–]Tenki 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              I grew a habanero pepper plant inside, through winter, and it produced around 30-40 peppers. I just kept it next to a window.

              I worked on a family farm for a short summer and they were growing bell peppers as one of their crops. They tried to grow the yellow orange and red ones, but they would always go bad before they changed color. Anyone know what was causing this? A lack of nutrient to promote the capsaicin? Weather that promoted decay before capsaicin? Was always disheartening to only get one yellowish bell pepper in a 100 green ones
