Peppers too hot! Suggestions for next year?
I guess I am just not a chilihead. :) But then again I knew that, so I tried growing varieties that were advertised as "similar to jalepeno" in heat. I eat jalepenos, they are variable, but overall even the hottest ones from the store are edible. The peppers I grew this year? Hotter than the hottest jalapeno, more like cayenne. However, I enjoyed growing them and they make a nice addition to the garden, and I do like eating hot peppers that are at a level I like, so I would appreciate any suggestions for me to think about for next year.
The varieties from this year were: Mirasol, Bulgarian Carrot, Aji Pineapple, and Aji Dulce #3. Actually that last one was as mild as advertised (no heat) but tasted a lot like flowery Play-doh (I know I'm not the only child that has tried eating that stuff). Also, I really liked my Aji Pineapple once it was totally cleaned and then pickled, but it was a lot of work to do that to those small, thin-walled fruits. I could tell the other two had nice flavors, but I just could not get past the heat to really enjoy them. So, any suggestions from you more experienced growers?
