Default It seems to be a great pepper year

I've never seen peppers grow like this...
Just picked a few and it looks like there will be tons.
I'm impressed with most of them...
Cheese Peppers are one I'm going to have to stake soon or they will break.
Never been able to grow a good jalapeño but Biker Billy is huge. Shish!to, Manganji,Corbaci, Etuida all good...
100 peppers and 1 died a yellow monster

Yes Sir. Those Bikers are ready to be stuffed and grilled. Do you own a pepper holder? A stuffed, grilled jap is the perfect beer food.

I'm picking loads of padron peppers, my favorite! Charred and drizzled with olive oil and sea salt, yummy. Picking lots of jalapeños as well, making lots of poppers with those.

Jimmy Nardello and Golden Treasure plants are loaded and just beginning to ripen. Yes a very good pepper year!

I just realized that I mixed in Georgia Flame with Sweetest Pepper when I picked, and I can't tell the apart. Now I can't sell them, because customers would get mad if I sold them a hot pepper saying it was sweet. I am going to need to eat some peppers.

Man, some really nice harvests coming in.

CR, I suspect they wouldn't buy them either if you cut the tip off to taste test...

You could just make salsa.
I would have then eaten in a day or two.

I gave them to my mom so she can make zucchini relish. I have a lot more coming behind it. Sweetest and Golden Treasures are both loaded with peppers, every bit as much as my hybrid bells.

My hot peppers are looking great, too. I think I even have a new F1 variety from an accidental porch pepper cross last year, Purple Fatali. It must have crossed with one of my purple ornamentals. Stabilizing should be easy, I think, because the seedlings have purple leaves.

Golden Treasure is your sweetest. May have to try that one next year. That's great you guys are having a good pepper year. Mine started off with too much rain which lead to leaf diseases. They never really completely recovered from it. I'm still harvesting some peppers though.

Shaping up to be a good pepper year here, too. My container-grown peppers are way ahead of the in-ground ones, but 7 of my 8 varieties seem hyper-productive. Red Peter doesn't seem to like it here.

Peter is pretty persnickety. He has no reputation as prolific, perpetuated for his other .. personality traits.
