If you want LOTS of really hot peppers

I planted cowhorn peppers, which I'd never seen. The suckers are huge, each pepper 5-6 inches or more and over an inch in diameter. Each plant is producing tons of these really hot things (around 30K scoville units). They're really growing well here in Zone 7. So if you like lots of hot, I can definitely recommend this old variety.

Now, if I could just figure out what to do with them all...

You could always dry them, or string them into wreaths...

Did you get them from seed or where did you get them?

These guys I bought as seedlings at my local feed and seed. They had lots and said they're very popular around here.
