Padron which I let them turn red. Best flavor
long red hots - nice kick in sauces and pastas
Tabasco - 2/3 of these adds lotsa love to anything

We are growing many of the same varieties, but I am at least a month behind you. What is your seed source for the Greek Pepperoncini?
I have a pack of older Burpee seed and several still germinated, but they only have Italian Pepperoncini listed this year.

One of the experiments I look forward to this year is comparing the different colors of ghost pepper, as well as the different colors of Fatali, the original of which was my favorite super-hot from last year.

I also have several new heirloom sweet peppers to try, thanks to generous gifts and trades from other t'villers.

Going to do just a few hots here this year and those mainly for friends. The main one will be Rooster Spur. One of the more popular peppers wanted down here. They make a great pepper sauce. Guess that what you call it. They take all the peppers and put in bottles with vinegar and shake out on food. Makes a pretty bottle with all the different colors in it.

Everything else is going to be sweets. Top of the list

Enjoya
Pustzagold
Ros De Mallorca
Tenke Dolmasi
Ference Tender

Paprika's and a bunch of sweets from generous MMMM swap folks.

I think I got it on trade couple of years ago.
I also had/sowed Burpee Italina pepperoncini but it did not germinate. So I have just 3 Greek version.

Robert, you've got lots of peppers.

Cole, I grew red Fatali two years ago. I think I might have dry pods but not marked. I will try to grow Bhut Jolokia one day. It has good reviews.

For hots I have six Serrano, which are used mainly in my bottled hot sauce, and three Cayenne Ring of Fire because they are early and red in time for salsa canning. I also tried a few hot pepper seeds that followed me home from a Persian restaurant in Vienna, but they did not germinate

For sweets I like large thick-walled bell types that reliably turn red in August. I have been planting Red Beauty and King Arthur which perform well, but are hybrids so I have to buy seed each year. This year I substituted Ozark Giant for the King Arthur to see if this open pollinated variety turns red in time. I have six of each under lights.

I cut back on peppers this year since I still have 25 half-pints of my hot sauce in the cellar from my 2016 harvest, and a freezer full of sweet peppers. One 50' row should fulfill my needs this year.
