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.
