Chocolate Habanero Pepper

One of the strongest and best producing plants in the garden this year. Only the Bhut Jalokia plant was larger. Outstanding typical Habanero flavor but much sweeter as most brown colored peppers tend to be. Even if you are not a fan of hot peppers you should grow this one because both plant and fruit are just stunning. You can always give away produce and fans of “heat” will love you.

Serbian Sweet Pepper

One of my favorites out of the garden this year. This is a sweet pepper that I prefer to pick before it is fully ripe. I really liked the aroma and sweet crispness of the pale yellow fruit over the fully ripened orange. Either way, this is sure to become tops on just about everyone’s heirloom pepper list.

Chervena Chuska Pepper

I am going to go ahead and say this. Chervena Chuska is the best pepper ever. If I could only grow one pepper, Chervena Chuska would be it. Have you seen these new hybrid peppers being marketed both in the grocery store and at other seed companies as “snacking peppers” or “lunch box” peppers? Well they can’t hold a candle to this open pollinated heirloom.

Rat Chili Pepper

This is another one of our Capsicum frutescens peppers. This little thing has the prettiest flowers. The plants are strong growers and required little effort to pump out huge amounts of hot little peppers. Rat Chili would be a great candidate for picking green and making clear pepper sauce that is so popular here in the South.

Chocolate Congo Pepper

If you heard a loud unexplainable noise on August 26th, that was me screaming. I had sliced up a bunch of these Chocolate Congo peppers for collecting seed when I noticed my neighbor was out in his yard. He had told me in the past that he liked hot peppers so I saw an opportunity to get a taste test. He popped a large one in his mouth and chewed it up.

Coal Drop

Striking black peppers on deep dark purple green foliage makes Coal Drop about the prettiest pepper plant I have ever grown. It is not, however, an ornamental pepper. These little black gems are full of flavor and full of heat. They mature to a deep red when fully ripe and take on a bit of sweetness. I never got around to pickling these.

$2.99

Trinidad Perfume Pepper

Trinidad Perfume comes in 2nd place for my favorite pepper. This fruity little pepper looks like it would set you on fire, but it does not really have any heat. It does have flavor. I made a Jamaican type pork dish using these peppers and it was outstanding. The only thing disappointing about this pepper was that I didn’t think to preserve any.

$2.99

Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper)

If you enjoy seeing grown men curled up in the fetal position weeping, then this is the pepper for you. I did not try this one. However, when I was seeding the Bhut Jolokias it was all I could do to not eat one. They have the most enticing aroma. Very unusual fruity fragrance fills the room when you start slicing them. The Ghost Pepper, as it is sometimes known, was begging me to try it.

$2.99

Santa Rosa

Hands down, this was the best tasting pepper in my garden. I have always loved the Chervena Chuska Pepper, but I have to say that this Santa Rosa Pepper just might give it a run for its money. It is super flavorful and has a nice aroma. It is quite sweet and is good for both fresh eating and for cooking. If you only try one new thing this year, please give Santa Rosa pepper a try.

$2.99

Sweet Heat Pepper

This pepper resembles a Jalapeno in many ways. The size, shape, and heat are about the same as a Jalapeno. The difference comes in the sugar content of the flesh. This pepper is much sweeter than the Jalapeno. Due to its rich peppery sweetness, not only is it more flavorful than a Jalapeno, you will also find it more versatile for cooking and pickling.
