I went to a farmers market in Washington, DC, yesterday, and picked up a few peppers. The girls running the stand couldn't identify the peppers. My thinking at the time was they were Anaheims. Smoked a few for smoked salsa, and made a few ABTs. Long story short, they are not Anaheims! They give a huge blast of heat that subsides fairly quickly (I eat a lot of peppers, so my tolerance is fairly high). I've done some searching, and noticed that their shoulders taper and are narrower than Anaheims. But I cannot figure out what kind of peppers they are.
So I am posting a pic in hopes that fellow chileheads (richoso1?) can help me identify the pepper. They are about 4-5 inches in length and maybe 1.5 inches in diameter. They are really good, but screwed up my plans to keep the heat levels low for this evening's guests!
Thanks in advance.
