Capsicum annuum Our wide array of fabulous peppers, both sweet and hot, offers one of the richest sources of nutrients in the plant kingdom. Hot peppers contain capsaicin, which revs up your metabolism and reduces general inflammation in the body.

This is a very prolific, mild poblano. Mine get 3 feet tall, and so require a stake. Also, like most pepper plants, have very brittle branches so they require gentle handling. Peppers ripen to a fiery bright red color. My wife makes pepper jam from them. Highly recommended.
this is THE ancho to plant

Happened upon this variety about 4 years back. While I typically am always looking for something better, I don't with this pepper. Size and wall thickness make this perfect for chili rellenos. Perfect amount of "kick". I plant two...and have picked as many as a 5 gallon bucket full of peppers near the end of the season! We skin them, stuff them w/ beef, chicken, or cheese, add a sauce, and freeze them covered in 9x9 foil pans. Pop 'em in the oven for an easy evening meal.

Last year was the second time I planted these seeds. I had previously grown them in raised beds (we live in Montana and our 2500 sq.ft. veggie garden is subject to howling winds) but this year I planted them out in the big garden and the results were extraordinary. We did have a load of 5 yr.old horse poop dumped in the garden and they flourished. I harvested peppers 9" long - buckets full. We had a really hot summer and have a very good well, so that helped. I have already planted this year's seeds under lights and will be selling the plants at the Farmers Market as so many people know how well they did.
good stuff

I've been very happy with these peppers. The plants tolerated my amateur-level seedling care. I didn't get them in the ground until much later than I should have, but now I have a veritable pepper jungle and they are loaded with big peppers even despite our cool nights here. The plants are sturdy and seem to hold up under the weight of the fruit. I've enjoyed the peppers as rellenos and with roasted corn in an omelette. These have been a great use of garden space. The only things I may have done right with these was to dig a big bag of bone meal and several bags of steer manure into the soil, and also to install a drip irrigation system (not as hard as I thought). Territorial has a good one - the "row crop kit."
