Hmmm, some of those names would be great for new Masdie grexes. That would confuse things nicely!

Hey guys,
So what have you got going this year? I have a Hab and Thai chilli I overwintered. The thai is fruiting already! Also got Razzmatazz Numex, Jalapeño and California wonder coming up from seed.

I remembered we had this chilli thread here.

Last year wasn't a bumper crop, but I got a handful of smallish orange-yellow banana-type Bulgarian chillis and a number of Anaheim-like "griller" peppers. The grillers were actually a bit too hot for me to eat pure as grilled veg, yet not hot enough to use as a component of something else. Oh well. The Bulgarian carrot ones are useful to cook with though possibly not as good as the staple jalapeno which is about the same heat level for my experience last summer. Padróns were useless, giving me very dry fruit which was texturally inedible.

I will be growing in pots in the greenhouse this year to better manage water and fertiliser.

I planted this year's seeds 3 weeks ago, and wondered what anyone else was trying. Not all these are up yet; some were more recently planted; some may just be a bit old or not top-quality seed :(

Piquillo
Florina
Antohi Romanian
Mulato
Ancho
Pasilla
Palermo
Padrón - a different seed-source this year
Jalapeño
Sichuan Facing-Heaven
Aleppo

Have just acquired some Roquito chilli pepper pearls red, I have heard they are not too hot and are good for bottling
