Does anyone have any poblano seeds they would be willing to trade?
I have growing:
5 color marble
Caribbean Red Hab
Sorry, wish I did have some Pablano seeds for ya. You have some nice trade varieties listed.
But on a side note, I have a question for you. What are the differences between the Banana peppers and Hot Hungarian Wax? I assume you have experience with both if you have seeds?
Sorry, stupid me...I meant to write hungarian/bananna
OK, but I think there may be a difference actually. I think they are similar and get confused often.
They definitely are different plants.
Hot Banana pods are pendant, whereas Hungarian Wax sets upright and droops as it develops.
The morphology of the pod is also different: the Banana is longer, tends to have more of a curve,
and tends to be thicker at the shoulder, tapering to a more pointy tip. Hungarians have a
more uniform thickness from shoulder to tip, with less radical of a taper at the tip.
If I recall correctly, the Banana is not as smooth as the Hungarian, either.
Banana peppers have thinner walls than Hungarians in my experience. I believe there are many hybrid types of "Banana Pepper" out there so people may have varying experiences.
Hungarians are way better peppers also, if you ask me. Thicker walls and far superior flavor to banana peppers. I might skip Jalapenos next year and grow some extra Hungarians since they are basically interchangeable in recipes.
As for the Poblano seeds, if any of my pods can ripen without sunscalding horribly I would be happy to share seeds, hopefully since fall is here I can get a few ripe ones in the next month or so.
I have plenty growing so getting you some seeds should not be a problem. Send me an email.
Josh, Phildeez, thanks for the info on hungarian/banana. I think Phildeez is correct in that there are lots of hybrids that blur the distinction between the two.
