I've grown a couple of new peppers the last few years.
A selection of hot peppers show up annually in my garden -- garden salsa, jalapeno, super chili, Thai. But, I also really
like sweet peppers! Giant Marconi is a special favorite and lots are needed around here. And, I see nothing wrong with putting a hottie in with the sweet to liven a dish up a bit
Last year, I tried a few Japanese peppers from Kitazawa. The Takanotsume peppers are just blazingly
The Yatsufusa peppers have a real interesting look http://www.kitazawaseed.com/seed_238-104.html.
I had some problems with the plants but some of them made it thru seedling stage.
The skinny, little Fushimi peppers, on the other hand, are sweet and real tasty in stir-fries!
This year, I thought I'd see how little sweet Italian peppers do and grew Pepperoncini. I guess it had never occurred to me that the wrinkles in a pickled Pepperoncini are NOT caused by the vinegar
. Funny little wrinkled things
. . . .
Anyway, after picking Thai Hots for a couple of hours and not getting much more than I could stuff in my shirt pockets . . . I'm wondering why I grow so many of these plants! I mean, a pocket full will go a loooong way!
Probably, I will grow more and more sweet peppers since more pounds
of them can be included in my diet, along with grams
of the red, hot dynamite that we can choose from
