A few i saved for hot sauces.
A few of the larger ones i saved for seeds. I also saved a bunch from some smaller pods too. Not sure it will make any difference but what the hell.
looks good, I made a good sauce from the lemon drops, and made a sauce from tai last week.....didn't grow habs this year, but have goast/reepers in the freezer.........been pickin my Mexican peppers, got 6 varieties, they will get dried and ground for chili powder.
You fellas might enjoy the Facebook group, Pepper Geeks.
Thanks, i don't use FaceBook but there is a great pepper forum called thehotpepper. It very mildly moderated too. Very little censorship.
I normally dont grow habs but i got them for about $2 for 4 plants. They are just too **** hot for me. I did start making milder hab sauces and one worked out great. Its only a tiny bit hotter than say....Tobasco and milder then their hab sauce.
The hab carrot ferment i have going though will be really hot for my tastes. Its about 2 months old now. After blending i will give it a taste and possibly tame it down with a orange bell pepper....not really sure yet but it smell REALLY hot.
I got the lemon drops to make sauce but.....i love them fresh too. I just cant eat them fast enough. They also make a great pepper powder. A little of the powder in some mayo rocks on a salmon burger.
Scotch Bonnet Yellow MOA
7 Pot Yellow...These are brutally hot
Biker Billy or Mucho Nacho Jalapeno
Aji Cito...similar to lemon drop but more heat
Thai Giant Orange...these are mild for Thai peppers
Beni Highlands...milder yellow hab type that produces early
Gochugaru...Korean mild peppers used for kimchi
New Mex 64...mild Anaheim type with just a touch of heat.
Super Chili Hybrid
Might add some Serranos and Cowhorns again.
Red orange yellow green and purple sweet peppers .
Anaheim Serrano jalapeÃ±o cayenne habanero and Bannana
I'm scaling back on the Peppers this year. I made enough habanero sauce and jelly last year that I'll probably only plant 1. I'll put in 6 jalapeÃ±os for salsa, canning. I found Italian sweet peppers to be really good last year, and will definitely plant them again this year. Probably 4 plants. Here is the dish I cook several times per week, in season, using Italians instead of bells.
I've never found a good use for the Serrano, Poblano, etc. They are too spicy for sweet use, and not spicy enough for my tastes for salsa.
Serrano are normally much hotter than jalapeno. They make a good jelly and a really nice hot sauce. The thing i like most about them though is they turn red easier than most jalapenos.
I just started two more Anaheim varieties. Both are hot for Anaheim.
Lumbre...these can be really hot. 9k-10k Scoville and some people have reported much hotter.
Sandia Select....These have thicker walls than regular Sandia and can reach almost 7k-9k Scoville.
Try Potatoes O'Brien with a good mildish medium heat Anaheim sometime....Its blows away a bell pepper. Anaheims are incredibly versatile and roasted/peeled they freeze well for making verde sauces later.
Poblanos make great chile rellenos and dried (when ripe) make a fairly good base for enchilada sauce. Ancho powder anyone?
I will have some extra lemon drop seedlings and extra NuMex Lumbre (hot Anaheims) if anyone near Grants Farm would like a couple.
Lemon Drops are late producers but produce LOTS around the middle of August up until it gets cold. These are from plants i grew last year so they should be true since i didn't grow any other baccatums. They are not super hot but usually much hotter than a jalapeno or serrano.
This one was in a fairly small pot and produced tons of peppers
Just bells, Anaheim and jalapenos this year. Might get a ghost pepper plant just as a novelty, the amish store had some individual plants
Just a heads up if you want to try a "super hot" Lowes had Bonnie red Bhut Jolokia aka Ghost pepper plants this year. Its new for Bonnie and they seem to be pushing the retailers to sell them.
Be aware that Ghost peppers have a VERY long growing season. Dont expect any ripe peppers until well into August or later.
I think these were Bonnie plants.
The orange habs Bonnie sells now are also BRUTALLY hot for orange habs. They went to a hybrid called Spartacus a year or two ago. Wickedly hot and produce fairly quickly for a habanero type. Its a cross between a orange hab and a naga.
Let her drip!!! Thats 12 i wont have to hand water.
Burn baby burn!!!!
7 Pot Yellow...This bad boy is loaded with pods now
Beni Highlands (mildish habanero variety)
Bonnie Mucho Nacho Jalapeno...this one has been really producing pods.
Bonnie Cajum Belle...another heavy producer
Scotch Bonnet MOA Yellow
Just tons of jalapenos
If you like jalapeno the best i highly recommend the Early and Mucho Nacho. Both have mid to upper heat for a jalapeno. Some of the mid to upper heat level Anaheims are great too. NuMex64 is mild and Lumbre is pretty hot. Big Jims are mild to mid and HUGE with great flavor.
Im also growing poblano, Lumbre, milder orange Thai peppers, super chili and Tabasco peppers.
