One of our best "table draws" is a couple half bushel baskets divided into 5 or 6 wedges with a diffrent type of hot pepper in each one. They are very attractive sitting on the table and people will often come over and buy other stuff like heirloom tomatoes or other high dollar items. We sell them 5 for a dollar the first couple weeks, and end up with selling them 10 for a dollar, we don't make much money for them but they draw a lot of people, granted it is a lot of work.
People buy them to pickle, string, or decorate.
We would like suggestions for fairly early (as we live in Northern, Ohio) and prolific production. They also need to be lots of diffrent colors and generally attractive or interesting looking. We also grow mainly heirlooms so that is important. Our best ones so far has been Lemon Chilis.
Any advice on varieties for this use?
