Pepper harvest in Nuuanu

Featured, Harvesting on January 26th, 2011 1 Comment

Lots of peppers were harvested from the gravel bed in the commercial system in Nuuanu, including long slim sweet (mild), Hawaiian chili (hot), holy mole (hot!), chocolate habanero (hotter!), and red hot cherry peppers (super hot!).

    Aloha to the folks at Hapa Farms.
    I am a student at UH in the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources and taking a class in Tropical Crop Science. Our long term project that is coming to a close at the end of the semester has been on a specific crop grown here locally. I picked Capsicum based solely on my love of peppers but have found that it is not grown in large quantities. I found this website just today and would so appreciate hearing from you guys.
    Do you grow your peppers hydroponically? How much space do you use specifically for peppers and what are your yields?
    It would be great to hear from you, are you located on Oahu. I would be willing and happy to travel to your farm if that was okay?
    Look forward to hearing back.
    Mahalo,
    Nate
