Whats your favorite hot pepper, and why??
Whether its for the fruits themselves - the heat, the flavor, the usefulness in the kitchen..... or because of the plants that produce them- the hardiness, production, or looks??
Previous to this year Ive only grown peach habs and the pretty purple pepper plant, but this year Ive harvested some hungarian wax, and have some bhuts, chocolate habs, and thai hots (along with my peach habs) waiting to ripen.
Im quickly seeing that the plants definately have different characteristics and strengths.
I gotta say I love my 3 year old peach hab plant. Its like a freaking tree and you cant kill it. Its stalk is thick, woody and the plant seems dam near indestructible. ive trimmed it down to a stump to rid it of aphids and white flies and chopped off way to much of its roots while Ive been learning about cultivation, and still this year its big and beautiful and burning my face off at the dinner table.
So whats YOUR favorite .... and why??
