I got a late start, but just just got my seeds in and turned the hot pad up to 85F. Hope to see some germinating peppers shortly ... this year I'm growing:
  • Aji Amarillo (the pepper of Peru!)
  • Black Habanero (larger and hotter than regular habanero, with a dark born to black color)
  • Bonda Mahala (Bonda Ma Jacques x 7 Pot Yellow cross)
  • Choricero (the pepper of the Basque area of Spain)
  • Fatali (an heirloom variety from Africa)
  • Peach Ghost Jami (Superhot variety of peach bhut jolokia)
  • Pimentos de Padron (who doesn't love some roasted Padrons!?)
  • Scotch Bonnet (the pepper of Jerk Chicken, from Jamaica)
What's in your garden this year?

I haven't started anything but I'll plan jalapeños, habaneros and maybe like last year a Tabasco plant. Possibly a Serrano too. I have limited space and everything is in self-watering buckets so I need to pick n choose.

Bells and bananas.

For hot just plain 'ol habaneros.I grow these in large quantity for a local pub to make their "Stormin Norman" hot sauce.

Just green bells, hot banana and sweet banana. We don't care for the really hot stuff anymore and I can get excellent jalapenos for stuffing at the Mexican market down the street. I canned/pickled peppers for the first time last year and am looking forward to more this year.

This thread got my Pepper Juices going so I did some searching for pepper seeds.
I found Pepper Joe !


Very cool site !
One thing I saw there that I NEED is


I smoked and dried some peppers of various types. I dried 9 lbs of fresh peppers that reduced to 3 oz ! These packs of powder are 1 full oz. It would take 9 lb of fresh to make these packs! This is a good deal for $20 and I don't have to grow them first !

I purchase my bell peppers from a local greenhouse. She usually has Habanero and sometimes unique peppers so I get them, too.
Local college has a horticulture club plant sale in early May. I shop there too. Selection really varies from year to year. Very careful with my purchases as they tend to be infested with aphids.

Here is what I started at home
Jalapeno Gigantia
Korean Lady Choi
Korean Gochujang King
Thai Chili
Thai Garden Bird
Cherry Bomb (my wife got this from a store last year and I chanced a risk the seeds will produce a viable crop)

Next year I want Scotch Bonnet. Don't know If I can start them early enough to produce a crop.
Appreciate the link W Will Squared
Haven't checked your source P poacherjoe
I get a lot of my Asian specialty seed from Kitizawa Seed
