I may have jumped the gun his year in hopes of having some more mature plants when I plant compared to last year. Mine were sown end of October and just transplanted into 3.5 inch pots. Hopefully one more transplant into 1gal root bags and a topping before hitting pay dirt around Mid April.

Scotch Bonnet WHP
Bahamian Goat
Cabarnero
Aji Chombo
Fatali
Sugar Rush Cream
Sugar Rush Peach
Aji Amarillo
Aji Pineapple
Aji Panca
Aji Cachucara
Aleppo

Indeed. Usually about half in containers and half in the ground.

I grow Aji Amarillo, Aji Criollo (frutescens), 2 types of Rocoto as new this year.
Also I grow the usual jalapeno and Padron (most productive and best pepper ever).

I mean I try to grow Rocoto. I have zero germination in almost 3 weeks now. This sucks, my Jalapeno germinated in 3 days, and the non-rocoto from the same vendor germinated fine.

The Aji Amarillo is insanely tall, and it's just the cotyledons, it's twice the height of the other peppers, I have bad feelings about this pepper.

That's almost normal for Rocoto. A month+ is not unusual, stick with it. My Amarillo are some of the most vigorous of the bunch as well. Twice the size of some of the other types.

How do your greenhouse tomatoes compare to your outdoor grown? They look very nice.

After many years of trying different sweet peppers, I found that in my climate select hybrid peppers are so much superiour to any others varieties that I am growing only hybrids now which proven to be excellent in taste and heavy producers.
These are:
1. Thunderbolt F1
2. Flavourburst F1
3. Revolution F1
4. Gypsy F1.

Also, trying a couple of new hybrids to see if they should be added to the "elite" list of everys year "must grow".

I'm growing in dutch buckets/hydroponic and to me it's a little watered down but not that noticeable. No one has ever complained about the taste.

Default Skin protection for super hot seeds?

My grow list this year:
Asi Sivri
Joe E. Parker
Sweet Banana
Carmen
Beaver Dam
Pablano
Chervena Chushka
Peperone di Senise
Aji Colorado
Aji Mango
Sweet Chocolate Ghost
Fatalii yellow
Brown Bhutlah
Trinidad Cherry yellow
Tobago Seasoning
Sweet Habanero Orange
Fish
Plus one that turned up as a cross of Asi Sivri that is like a slightly fatter Asi Sivri which thicker walls (banana pepper thickness), which I've really enjoyed. I'm not sure if it is stable yet, but got some very similar peppers off my F2 plants last year.

I don't normally plant anything hotter than I would eat, but I received some super hots as a bonus packet this year and thought I'd grow them out for my local PTA plant sale, with proper warning of course. It is the Brown Bhutlah that I think is pretty darn hot. When you all are planting super hots, do you wear gloves or anything like that to protect yourselves from any left over heat? I know most people do when seeding peppers, but these are dry and most of the placenta and flesh is off although maybe a bit dried on as residue. Should I be careful or are the pretty much benign at this point?

If you hold the super hot seeds in your hand you can burn yourself. Nitrile or latex gloves will protect you, but I never worry about pepper burns while sowing seeds. Much worse than burned hands and fingers is what happens when you touch some other sensitive body parts after handling hot pepper seeds. Of course, you multiply the heat from handling pods times a million or two compared to handling seeds.
