It has come to my attention that my Central American “Culebra Negra” peppers are not at all happy about the cold weather. It’s the end of November so we’ve had a couple of near-freezing nights with 34° to 37°F lows right before dawn, but nothing that I would consider a hard frost.
The Hidden Lake Hot Cayenne/Thai hybrids are still flowering and fruiting quite a bit, but the Culebra Negras are a different story. Seems these poor plants, with their burned and shriveled leaves, have a lot less tolerance for the near frosty temps.
Go ahead, leave a comment. I won't bite.
