Favorite Peppers

My Fresnos are producing. Different kind of heat than a jalapeño, heat with sweet. Put in sets mid March so they are a fast producer getting to red fruit already.

Cajun Belles have some immature peppers. Can’t wait to try those. Other bell peppers have lots of immature fruit.

The Jimmy Nardellos are slowly growing, just getting to the flower stage. Same for the Corno di Toro types. I did the Jimmy Nardellos, the Jalapenos and the Shishito from seed and was late getting those going and the cold weather slowed them down.

What are some of your favorite peppers to grow? How do you like to prepare them?

I like jalapeños and grow several plants every year. Sometimes they are nuclear hot but my favorites are regular hot. I've planted poblanos for the first time. We really like creamy soup made with them.

Peppers are among the easiest plants to grow in the home garden.

I've tried several different varieties but have found over the years that plants with fruit at or above the Habenaros on the Scoville scale are too hot for handling safely.

My current preference is bell peppers, Corno di toro (cows horn), jalapeno, and a very few habeneros.

They all freeze easily and are used in just about everything we eat. Production will be continuous all year until a good freeze takes them out next Dec. or so.

Production really seems to ramp up in the fall and that's when we normally get ours for freezing.

Serrano peppers are about at the top of the heat profile that I typically like. What do y'all do with the Habaneros? They are way hotter than a Serrano. I like salsa and pico with Serrano peppers. Anyone ever grow Serrano peppers?

From about late May to Sept we have a Pico salsa almost every day made from fresh garden ingredients including habeneros.

The Roma tomatoes, 1015 onions, cukes, bells, jalapenos, and just a little habenero make for great fresh sause all from the garden. Sometimes we add sweet corn fresh picked.

We don't like much cilantro and use it sparingly, if at all, and also add avocado occasionally for variety but those along with salt, pepper, and limes are the only things not from the garden.

I can eat a big bowl of the stuff almost every day...absolutely love it!

I’ve got the usual jalapeños, cayenne, and Serrano this year.

I added shishito, ghost, habanero, spicy mexi bell, and orange sweet pepper or something like that.

I’m looking forward to trying the shishito. Also making some fermented hot sauce.

My 2 birdseyes are coming along from overwintering as well.

This year I'll have started from seed: Jalapeno, Anaheim, Sweet Yum Yums, Aji Dulce #2, Aji Mango, and Aji Rico.

The Yum Yums are small, but sweeter than regular Bells. Thick walled, no heat, as well. Very productive. You will get more volume of ripe fruit from these than you will a standard Bell.

Anaheim have less heat than Jalapenos, medium thick walls,and are great on sandwiches and hot dogs/brats in a bun. Good in Salsa and for stuffing too.

The 3 Aji peppers are all shaped, and taste a lot, like Habanero peppers. However, each has a slightly different fruityness. All are thin walled like Habaneros, but all of them have less heat than a Jalapeno. These are still pretty uncommon in the U.S. but are widely used in South America and some Caribbean countries. They make awesome sauces, ingredient in cooking, salsas, and even eating fresh out of the garden. I can't even eat a Jalapeno like that! My guess it will be several years before these will be available as started plants. Ya gotta buy the seeds and start them. Worth the effort if you are starting other plants as well.
