Lily, I can use you as an example of a good gardener in contrast to one who can really mess things up out there!!!
Carmen and heatless Jalapenos?
I grew a Jalapeno with no heat a few years ago. Unfortunately, I kept mixing them up at harvest with the Jalapeno M that I also grew . . . ! "Is that a hot one?" "I don't know, I'll have to taste it."
Carmen was my swing & miss in 2012. I really wanted to see if they had time to ripen in my garden with its cool nights & fairly short season. Who knows???!
I lost the plant tag and harvested those 4 plants with my other green Italian Sweets!
they might have ripened.
I really like the Italian sweet peppers and pretty much, all the varieties that I've grown. I've read that even the ones with Caribbean names are of Italian heritage. The Giant Marconi was the one that made me a believer in their wonderful flavor and the Italians just do a lot better than the bells in my garden.
The Big Early was the nice bell that I've grown the last couple of years with pretty good success. Yummy are little sweet peppers that are from small productive plants that have real tender, flavorful fruit - also, for 2 years running.
I've grown Super Chili for a long time & never have any problem with those fiery little guys.
