Q.No Blooms On My Carolina Reaper

Zone Moore 73160 | DennisG added on July 7, 2020 | Answered

My Carolina reaper is four feet tall, healthy with great foliage. It has not produced a single bloom. I have a Scorpion plant that was potted at the same time and it is covered with blooms and loaded with fruit. I am in Oklahoma and have lots of sun, I water three times a week and fertilize weekly. This is my first attempt at growing the reaper

Here are specific instructions for fertilizing that should help. It needs a soil pH of between 6 and 6.5, which is on the acidic side. Plus, it takes a very long growing season, so patience is a virtue.
