I've been freezing them for years, both chopped and cut into strips. I use them in a variety of dishes and they taste fine.

Freezing peppers works well, still good flavor, the only thing is that they're not as good for pizza toppings -- the texture/consistency after freezing is a lot softer, most folks like their peppers for pizza toppings to be more crisp.

I freeze them as well! Especially when I pick them before the first hard freeze! Strips works good for me.

Cream Fatalli (not hot)
Biker Billy F1
Dulce Jalapeno
Colima Jalapeno
Leutschauer Paprika
Texas Bird Pepper
Lots of Tolli's Sweet Italian

Not as many pepper varieties as I normally do. I will purchase some at the
garden center as well.

If all goes well I will be dehydrating, freezing, and canning.

Low bush type plant produces good yields of 6 cm long by 3 cm wide very hot pods mature from light green to cream in color.

ok, so it is a hot pepper. Is it the same as Fatali White?
