Peppers are Pooped Out

By Published On: November 30th, 20200.5 min readCategories: Photos

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.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
