Slow Picked Peppers

The harvest of our jalapeño peppers is unlike anything else we grow at Rogue Farms.

With all of our other ingredients, the entire crop is ripe and ready for picking at the same time. We can pick one of our hop varieties in a day. Harvesting a field of our malting barley takes a few days, maybe a week if the weather is bad.

But our peppers? They have a mind of their own.

This yea, we planted three varieties of jalapeños in an acre size patch.

Hop Harvest In, Two More To Go

We Like Them Hot

“To everything there is a season”, the ancient sage teaches us, and at Rogue Farms we’re coming to the end of one season and starting another.

We just finished planting our jalapeño peppers. This is one of the last crops we’ll put in the ground this year. The planting season is winding down and the harvest season will be here sooner than you think.

Just a couple of years ago we were growing our peppers in small, garden boxes. It was an experimental patch to see how they would do in the soil and climate of the Wigrich Appellation, and how they would taste in our Chipotle Ale and Chipotle Spirit. They turned out so well that we planted a quarter acre last year, and a full acre this year.

Red Means Go

Unlike most jalapeño growers, we at Rogue Farms wait on green and go on red.

It means we have to be more patient, to give our jalapeños extra time to ripen, but the difference it makes in our Chipotle Ale and Chipotle Spirit is worth it.
