Thread Starter 
Well the jalapenos I planted are coming along. Peppers already on the plant. I planted 10 of these jalapeno plants. Tomatoes in the background are doing well also. Plenty of ABT's coming soon.

Real nice peppers there. Never heard of Giant Jalapenos, but I like it!~...are they just as hot? Your plant looks great, have another 3 weeks before we can put ours in.

Congrats on your first ones, hopefully you will have more than you can handle they grow so well. Had to look and see where you were from since you already have them planted and established.
What kind of tomatoes are you growing in the background?

I've got one plant saved from last year in a pot im getting a few chiles off of but the rest wait till may to go in the ground. while not freezing... we get cold snaps up till mothers day that stunt growth. been burned the past three years. no worries, have a couple cases put up in mason jars.

this year will likely be half a dozen each of jalepenos, sweet bananas, yummys, poblanos, and single tobasco, habenero, and ??? as space allows.

for those never tried yummy peppers.. wow, in the bell family but much sweeter, no heat, literally will find yourself standing by bush eating them like apples.

Thanks. Bayou how do you can them? Have a recipe? I usually do a bunch of ABT's and pass out to friends. I also freeze a lot. Need to start canning. Would like to find a tested and true pickled jalapeno recipe. Thanks grothe.

Cajunsmoke13-I think you are slightly ahead of me.This is one of my 18-I grow 12 for chipotles and 6 for stuffers and for canning.I grow the monsters Goliath and Grande-they are HOT-listed 10-50% hotter then normal but heat mellows when RED for chipotles

Some of my other 110 peppers and 72 tomatoes in waiting

This habanero taken out of garden in Nov. and root pruned and cut back stem.Giving this to sister in may.

Cajun - your jap plants are coming along nicely, they look really healthy and green. I tried to grow some plants down here and they got taken by the bugs icon_evil.gif. Glad to see what a jap plant is supposed to look like! PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif
