All of my family says the name Pretty N Sweet fits them perfectly. They like eating them a lot. It is a nice looking plant too - perfect for containers or an ornamental bed.

To me, it's not a jalapeno it needs some heat/spice. Otherwise, it tastes very good.

That’s fine if they are not hot. I have plenty of hot peppers.

I'm going to reply to this thread and another that I started with the same post.

If you and/or other family and friends don't like the heat/spice of peppers - grow some Pretty N Sweet, Nadapenos, Fooled You, Jimmy Nardello, and many others. When you watch your adult child and grandchildren eating them like they were candy, and your grandchild says I've eaten 8, can I have 4 more - I'll eat them slowly...

That is why to grow them.

An interesting concept, Bill! I am making a note to try this next spring. BTW, did you get any yield from the sweets?

Default Show up your peppers

Roper,
Those are some healthy looking peppers. They also look pretty advanced for the first of June.

I am also going to try the same thing in my okra bed this year and see if having the sweet potato vines under them is as complimentary to them as it is to the peppers.

Bill
I was just thinking about your post again. Is it possible the peppers did better because the sweets acted like a mulch? Or do you mulch your peppers anyway every year?

Fantastic Roper. Plants look healthy and pods set is great. Much more ahead than my grow season. I'm guessing that's the Espiritu Santo Red in the 3rd pic?

Thanks, yes that’s the name. I was too lazy to go outside and check the label.

This is Thai Bangkok. I finally grew it from ScottinAtlanta’s seed offer. A healthy plant and these peppers get pretty big I believe.

Really a pretty nice looking black pepper.Rumored to be similar in heat to Serrano.I also germinated 6 Ajvarski,but only 3 came up.They don't seem to be growing very fast...but at least they growing.Trying to harden off in the heat is a bugger tho.The smallest one never missed a beat and took to the heat without complaint.The larger of the 3 throws a tantrum within 15 min of being put in direct sunlight.

Pretty pepper tropical grower. Never heard of that variety.

I am harvesting ripe Espiritu Santo Red peppers. I have two pheno's. One rounded, which I believe is the right one, and another more elongated. The elongated one is hotter. I just put these in the dehydrated.

Over-wintered Fresno, and cubanelles from a share.
