Hey guys, just thought I would start a topic about early pepper plants. Especially good for us Northern gardeners. I have a few earlier varieties, but not a ton. Just curious what you all are going to be planting, as far as peppers go.
I found a few I think I'll add to my collection: Giant Aconcagua (75 days) and Yellow belle (65 days), also Hot Portugal (65 days) (very early hot pepper) . Does anyone know of any early bell peppers, beside California wonder. I have some Heirloom bells (red/orange), however they take until about Sept 15th for me (over 100 days), and that is cutting it very close. There must be some early heirlooms out there though.
You helped me out a lot in my "pepper post" (I actually have another question there for you right now
) so, I'm going to try to help you out right now.
Although you seem to prefer heirlooms (as do I) I'm including a few hybrids just for kicks. Also, I don't know if the others are heirloom or hybrid since the site doesn't say. I'd assume that if it doesn't specify hybrid, its an heirloom. You may want to cross-reference with another source, just to be sure. I believe Cornell University's site have a vegetable variety section.
Here's some earlier peppers:

Hmm... I was planning on growing jalapenos and (for the first time) Bhut Jolokia. But now I think that I may need to place another order after seeing all these
(and I think that I may have answered the question I had in one of my other threads too
