    My passion for hot peppers began in 2011 year. By chance. Just saw on the Internet a photo of a pepper of unusual shape. I was wondering - there is such a miracle in fact or not. I started looking for sites and found. But with the desired variety, many others have also been sent, which they also wanted to grow. So gradually my collection began to fill up. There was no system in it and no. I buy seeds, I exchange with friends, also my pepper friends bring me, already knowing about my addiction. This activity was very exciting and addictive. I myself do not do selection of varieties, I try to bring something new.
    My goal is collecting.
    Very interesting, how many of them?
    Talk about peppers can endlessly. Many gardeners do not even realize that they are black, white, purple and even striped. And how beautiful they blossom! And purple and purple flowers. And there is no need to talk about the diversity of the forms of fruits.
    When I was just starting to collect my collection, it seemed to me that pepper was a very simple plant. Like most gardeners, my knowledge was limited to the usual "grandmother" Ogonok and hot pepper on the vegetable patch. But thanks to the inexhaustible possibilities of the Internet, I learned that even on the sharpness peppers are divided into groups. Each has its own degree of stiffness, which is determined by a special scale. Its author is American chemist Wilbur Scoville. With the Scoville Heat Units, the level of capsaicin, the element responsible for the burning taste, is lost. But this scale is only for red peppers, since capsaicin is contained only in them. Peppers of a different color are sharpened by other substances. I often ask, why so many peppers? I can only answer the question with a question: "What do they collect for?". In order to learn as much as possible about such a wonderful vegetable! Find out how many there are varieties of hot peppers.

    Perchik - bright and burning
    Hot pepper in our gardeners culture is not particularly popular. On this, perhaps, there are reasons: for culinary purposes it is not required much of it-it is enough to buy a packet of ground red pepper-and enough for a long time, and to grow one's own, one must work hard. It takes a precious place in the greenhouse and can dust the sweet pepper, which also becomes acute.
    Once faced with such a problem, I did not grow hot pepper for a long time. But a few years ago, a friend gave me 5 seedling pieces, and I planted it in a greenhouse far away, about 10 m from the Bulgarian pepper. All autumn I admired bright beautiful bushes and now I respect him with respect for taste, favor, beauty and I must grow at least 15-20 pieces.
    Varieties of hot pepper a lot, but I mostly find the Falcon Beak. It does not occupy a place in the greenhouse, but it grows only in the street on beds or among flowers, but always in a sunny place.
    Sometimes in the autumn a few pepper bushes are transplanted into the greenhouse to a free place, so as to admire the red fruits longer.
    Many people think that in Siberia we do not get pepper on the beds. Of course, there are not many red fruits in street peppers, but just a couple of weeks the torn green pepper of the house blushes quickly right before our eyes. In a month you will not have any green.
    Beautiful scarlet pods are very decorative and all winter decorate our kitchen. Very effectively look bundles of dry peppers, suspended on the wall. It is believed that the substances contained in the fruits of pepper, increase appetite, cause a sense of emotional recovery and therefore help to cope with the winter longing. If you are not a fan of spicy dishes, even visually it is able to cheer up.
    Here he is, a burning pepper - a handsome, useful and kind assistant.
    In the spring I dry the pods in a coffee grinder and take the powder to the dacha. I use practically from all pests.
    * Mix with mustard powder and add to the holes when planting turnips, radishes, potatoes. A wirewalker does not like this treat, and the bear walks around.
    * It is useful to water cabbage with pepper from caterpillars diluted in water - a natural and harmless for the human body.

    Herbs with pepper
    Chili can be grown in the country. It is best in a greenhouse or a greenhouse where constant temperature and heat are maintained. We use hot pepper for canning, soup preparation, salads, second courses. Therefore, I certainly plant the bushes 10. Even dried pepper retains its taste for a long time.
    The cultivation technique of chili is similar to the technology of obtaining sweet pepper. Also soak the seeds in early February. It is important not to confuse these two species, so under the seedlings always put notes with the name of varieties. Plant the plants on the May holidays, but for chili cook a small separate greenhouse, so that when flowering there was no dusting, and the Bulgarian pepper did not acquire a sharp taste.
    In half a month after landing, and then every 2-3 weeks we feed the peppers races-0 ^% of complex mineral fertilizers. In July, begin to grow | The first fruits of green color, but while they are still bitter. On the bush | pepper ripens for a long time, therefore in the beginning of August we gather fruits and put them in a room. Here they mature, become red and acquire their sharp, rich taste.

      Oksana, if you and your family love dishes with hot peppers, they can be
      grow all year round on the windowsill. I and my son adore sharp peppers,
      earlier simply bought in shop, but during any time there was a problem,
      most of the peppers purchased were not at all acute, and cost considerable
      money. As they say, the salvation of the drowning person is the work of the drowning man himself, and I
      decided to try to grow peppers on the kitchen sill. Bought seeds
      pepper Hai Fly, Dutch hybrid. He put two peppers in two pots in each. I built the lighting, and for the second year these peppers go to food, though every two or three days, depending on the season. But if I planted ten bushes, I would have enough for daily consumption. Try it, it's not a troublesome thing, a fresh, hot pepper all year round, and in winter nice green
      on the windowsill.
