All my pepper plants have taken off and are producing more than I can keep up with at the moment.. Except my 2 ghost pepper plants. The plants themselves look great, but haven't started budding out and have zero fruit. Thought my habanero's were doing the same till i looked underneath the canopy and have about 20 golf ball sized fruits on each one, Just haven't started ripening yet.

This was my first year on the Ghost's so is it something with the plant or are they just late summer producers?

I find that to be very common with super hot peppers. They just shut down in the heat. When the night time temps start to drop they will start producing. My Scorpion did the same thing last year and in the fall it produced very well. Couple things you can do it keep a gallon sprayer mixed with a a tablespoon of epsom salt and spray the plants down every 2-3 weeks. Epsom is magnesium and sulfur. The mag encourages flower production. Both peppers tomatoes love it. Keep them fertilized and water and just give it some time to cool off and it should come around.

^^^^agree , but I'm not sure if it's the temps or the shorter daylight hours . Seems like the hotter peppers start growing well when it heats up but don't start producing until after the summer solstice . I'll start harvesting jalapenos , tabasco , etc before June but I've never picked a hab or ghost earlier than mid August .
