all are burpee seeds: 1. little dipper peppers, miniature bell pepper- 2" long and 1 3/4" wide. 2. jalapeno (hot), 3" long peppers; hot, zesty flavor. 3.big dipper pepper, 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" bell peppers. 4. sweet long pepper mix (sweet and mild), an equal mix of cornodi toro (red bull's horn shaped fruit) and sweet banana peppers.

hope they all produce. not really looking for any advice yet, just making a statement saying what i was going to try to grow.
Not bragging! Here's what's ordered waiting for shipment in May!

Goood grief.. somebody likes likes lots of hot n spicey food. Mee tooo
mostly my hubbies...He makes some awesome sauces, hot pepper jelly, dries them for sprinkling, etc. THey say they're addictive because of the capsacin...I know he couldn't deny it! We actually have 4 plants in our cellar from last year that he's trying to milk through winter.

Eating spicy food and/or chile peppers can become addictive. There are many people who don't enjoy tortilla chips unless they have salsa to eat with them, there are others that can never find a salsa HOT enough for their taste. Studies have shown that, yes, eating spicy food is addicting. What happens after eating something hot, is your body nerves feel pain. These pain signals are immediately transmitted to your brain. Your brain interprets this signal and automatically releases endorphins (the body's natural pain killer). The endorphins kick in and act as a pain killer and create this temporary feeling of euphoria. Hot and spicy food lovers soon begin to crave this feeling and are hooked!

I've also seen where some say they aren't addicting, but rather the body builds tolerance to the capsaicin which means you need more to get the spicy feeling.

What ever the case is.. I need more.

Keep Smokin
Looks good Chris -

I may have to check and see what Jalepino requirements are. Never tried growing them here. I love bannana peper in salads.

Holy Smokes Shell!
You must have one heck of a huge garden or you don't eat anything but peppers! With that many there's no way to keep them from xpolenating unless you have acres of gardens!

Tsk tsk ... 35 different peppers and no Italian fryng peppers?


I've never even heard of most of those.
The dorset naga is the same type as the Bhut Jolokia on my list...
Regular jalapeno is around 7500 on scoville scale. Red sovina is listed as the worlds hottest in Guiness BWR I think it's at around 500,000 on the scovie. The Bhut Jolokia is said to be 1,000,000...

Yes Deb, the gardent is pretty big. We started out with 8 tomatoes and about 8 peppers about 6 years ago. Some how the hubby's rototiller seems to get out of hand each year turns a couple more rows. We'll put in probably about 15 tomatoes, 4 or 5 zucchini, some cukes, and another veggie or two from a farmer around here...Pretty soon I'm going to have to get him a tractor with a discus (sp?) on it...
today i scored some more seeds: anaheim chili, serrano chili, and casacabella peppers. i got my garden tilled up, borrowed my brother's tiller. i tilled a 30' x 35' area.
I'm just startin' out this spring with Chichimeca peppers(large jalapenos), Chimayo peppers, and NUMex Sandia Hot. Our new digs need something to talk about!
seems like I grow better weeds and grass than vegetables. My tiller went out and I had do it all by hand last year. Not my cup of tea!

My neighbor grows all kinds of hot peppers and they always cross pollinate my peppers and get to hot. I like them but nobody else will eat them.

I need to grow some ABT peppers this year.

Got some banna trees right before fall, Hopefully I'll bananas this year. According to the leaf count I should get some.

To all the smarty pants I mean weeds and grass from the lawn!
I'm going to have to look for the chicimeca. If you like a spicy jap, you have to try the biker billy japs. Warmer than a regular jap but also bigger. Makes a great ABT. Funny, we can't plant here until May, I've already been out to to start looking at what I'm going to order. I screwed up last year with trying to save some of the bhut jolokia's, I had them on a plate to dry the seeds out. Well in the middle of the night someone thought they were some left over crumbs.
We had already processed the rest of them, so I have to start from scratch again.
Found out growing conditions have a great impact on pepper heat. I read a report last year that said the Bhut Jolokia, grown in another climate, had much less heat. I get pretty hot stuff, but not near as hot as friends that live farter south with better growing conditions for peppers.

Walked through my fave garden supply store this weekend. Can't wait to get seeds in the dirt.
What is the best way to start them from seed. I have some jalapenos. For most of my stuff I use those peat pods and throw a couple seeds in each one. Or would it be better to use a large pot and just transplant them later?
I start mine in plastic seed starter trays. I've had issues with peat pots not decomposing fast enough and not letting the roots grow out. I grow mine in a south facing window, with a plant light just above them, and rotate them90 degrees each day (so they don't all lead to one side as they grow in the direction of the sun.
I agree with ya, I'm up in PA, but our summers run around 90* through July and August. With the Bhut, even in my Northern area was peppr hot suicide. For people who wanted to taste it, we were only giving a piece of pepper, MAYBE about the size of half an eraser head. One guy actually wound up getting a bloody nose. I just can't explain the heat of these things. When you first bite into it, there's almost a celery taste to it. Then that freakin heat kicks in and you feel like you're in a Tom and Jerry cartoon with steam screaming out of your ears, nose and mouth! But as my husband says...great flavor though (going to be his epitaph!)
