I have way too many peppers that I have to plant! It's gotten to the point that I have little space for new ones to try - only one this year, which did not do well.
Superchili (absolute earliest every year)
Thai - various types
Superthai - a hybrid that dropped from the
market, and I'm still trying to stabilize
Jalafuego - favorite jalapeño
Chocolate and Red Savina habaneros
Aji Dulce - almost no heat habanero
Big Jim - favorite Numex type, to roast
Tomatoes, OTOH, I'm still searching for something heat resistant! And then there's the disease problem, from horrible wetness.
Sunsugar - most heat resistant of everything I
grew this year, though it still slowed.
Big Beef and Amish Gold Slicer - I plant
these, even though they are affected by wet
and heat. Always at the top in taste tests.
Pretty in Pink - probably plant this again,
because it came back from the heat faster
than any large variety.
Butternuts (only ones I can grow) - Polaris stores longer than any I have grown, and produces great numbers!
Kohlrabi - Kolibri
Ichiban - First ones every year, though not as
heat resistant as others.
Neon - one of the most productive, and heat
resistant varieties - a hybrid that is being
dropped from the market - available nowhere!
Saving seeds, but don't know if it will
Hari - most heat proof variety I have ever
grown, and incredibly productive.
Greens - something else I have too many of!
Komatsuna - generic for fall, and summer fest
for spring, as it grows into August!
Bok Choy - Win Win[/i] slowest bolting variety
Tatsoi - most cold resistant
Lettuce - leaf variety, that I saved the seeds
from, since it grew well into summer, and
grew and tasted great!
Swiss Chard and Perpetual Spinach
Okra - Emerald, and now Little Lucy
Beans - Blauhilde, which is a purple podded
variety, that is the earliest every year.
Snap Peas - Super Sugar Snap
Garlic - Estonian Red, and Metechi
Herbs - most that I have are perennials, but a few I plant from seed:
Dill - Dukat, which seems to bolt slower
Parsley - Italian Flatleaf
Epazote - Oaxacan Red

- favorite jalapeño
Is this a large jalapeño? Somehow we ended up with smallish ones this year, can't say what variety they are.
