I love peppers for their variety, both in appearance and flavors. Peppers contain more vitamin C per ounce than an orange! The plants can handle the heat of summer but not the rains. Therefore I plant them in the fall and they yield plenty of fruit until April/May.
Here are a few different types I have grown in my back yard over the years.
The hottest in the world ‘Carolina Reaper’
‘Flexum’ is sweet.
‘Biggie Chili’ is sweet too.
‘Pimiento’, thicker than a bell pepper.
Peruvian Purple Pepper
Santa Fe (Rio Grande type)
Poinsettia, one tall plant (3′)
Fish, variegated pepper
Inca Red Drop. 3′ x 5′.
Joe E Parker, mild
Yellow Cheese pimiento. Sweet!
My pepper is bigger than yours
Giant Acongacua, sweet as an apple.
‘New Mex Sunrise, Sunset, Eclipse’ and Jalapenos in yellow, orange and red.
