    Hi Rob,
    It’s my first season ever growing hot peppers. Would you recommend started anew once the season ends, or is it worth overwintering any plants? Thank you for any insight you can provide. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the hot pepper path.

      Hi Ryan! I overwinter a couple of plants, but I mostly start anew every year. If you do overwinter plants, you should wash all the dirt off the roots and repot and prune them back. If you don’t repot them, you’re likely to brings pests in the house. It’s happened to me every time. I’m editing part 2 of the Pepper Path and it should be out later this week!

    Hey Rob. Love your videos and your songs. How did you acquire your KS StarrRacha Hornet seeds? That looks like a great tasty peppper.

      Thanks George! I was lucky enough to get them directly from Khang Starr. If you join his Pepper Lovers group on Facebook, you might find someone who will trade some seeds with you, KS varieties are not for sale.
