How to pollinate Chilli Plants

Wed Apr 13, 2016 5:12 pm

I finally have Flowers on this years Chilli Plants! :-)

I pollinate my Chilli Flowers by using Cotton Swabs. I simply put it into the Flower, shakes a bit and then continue to the next Flower. The reason why I use a Cotton Swab is because I have several varieties coming, and I don't want to mix and cross pollinate different Chilli varieties with each other. I use one Cotton Swab per Plant. My lazy way would be to just use one of my fingers, but I don't want to run to the kitchen to wash my hands between pollinating each variety so I will try to stick to the Cotton Swabs during the full Season. 

This is a small video of the pollination. :-) Make sure to move between Flowers, even though it's not showing in this video. :-)

Thanks! It's either Hungarian How Wax or Jalapeño. It's the two varieties that have Flowers already. :-)

This is what you can expect a few days after pollination. The flowers starts withering, and then turn into beautiful Chilli Fruits.
