2011 Grow Lists

Posted by highalttransplant z 5 Western CO (My Page) on

I looked around and couldn't find a grow list thread for this year, so I thought I would start one. Might be premature on my part though, since my list isn't 100% nailed down yet. I'll be hosting another pepper seed swap in March, so I may make a couple last minute changes once that's underway.

Last year was my first to grow anything other than sweet peppers, and I discovered there's a lot of variability in heat levels, even on the same plant. When it came time to can salsa, I didn't have enough hot peppers ripe. So this year, I'm going up a notch in heat level, from jalapenos to serranos. Don't think I'm ready for habanero level heat, but if there are other peppers with about the same heat level as a serrano that you think I should include on my growlist, please let me know.

Oh, one other thing my list is missing is a non-hybrid bell that ripens to red, that is good for short season.

Potential 2011 Grow List:

Alma Paprika - 4th year, a must have for homemade paprika
Anaheim - not as consistent heat as I would like, open to suggestions
Ancho Gigantia (or maybe College 64?) - New to me
Beaver Dam - inconsistent heat level, but trying good producer
Black Hungarian - very ornamental and consistant mild to mod. heat level
Boldog Hungarian Paprika - haven't had any luck with these, 3rd year to try
Cascabella - prolific, consistent mild heat, and nice flavor
Chinese Giant - huge bells, stay green a long time
Giant Szegedi - cat ate the seedlings last year, trying again
Gourmet - orange bell
Jalapeno - which variety is the best?
Jimmy Nardello - new to me
Joe E. Parker - new to me
Pasilla Bajio - new to me
Patio Red Marconi - productive, great flavor
Senorita - nice, mild version of jalapeno, wish there was a non-hybrid option though
Soroksari - huge, elongated bells, cream to orange-red
Tolli's Sweet Italian - or other non-bell sweet

It will be another month before I actually start these, so I'll post the official grow list then.

I'd love to hear what everyone else is growing, and why you chose those varieties.

RE: 2011 Grow Lists

Oh, I just remembered a couple other peppers that I am thinking about growing this year to increase the heat in my homemade salsa - Sante Fe Grande, and Fresno. Any opinions about those?

RE: 2011 Grow Lists

Wow, fncer, maybe I should have asked which ones you're NOT growing, LOL. That's quite a list! Your garden must be pretty good sized to accomodate all of those.

RE: 2011 Grow Lists

Last year was my first time to grow peppers to eat, so I'm experminting to see what we like.
My list is a work in progress. I may add or delete a few as my space is limited.
These are the ones I want to grow based on use and taste.
We like them stuffed with cream cheese and bacon, roasted, grilled, and in egg dishes, soups and stews. DH likes them raw on sandwiches.
This year I want to try salsa and jelly and dryed for seasoning.
Ancho 101 Pepper
Ancho San Luis Pepper
Beaver Dam Pepper
Chimayo Chile Seeds
Corno di Toro Pepper
Georgia Flame Pepper
Habanero
Jalapeno Early

And just for fun

Any comments to improve this list is welcomed.


 o
RE: 2011 Grow Lists

So far my list is at 12.

Tabasco
Hot Cherry
Aji Yello *thx Ajijoe*
Thai Chile *thx Greenman28*
Pepperoncini *thx Greenman28*
Serrano
Habanero
Cayenne
Caribean Red
Bell
Hunarian Wax
Jalapeno

Actually i planted one of each last night in potting soil filled egg carton. I got it on top of a double four foot flourescent light above my 90 gallon aquarium. Im thinking the heat from the lamp and the tank being at around 80 degrees should offer a nice germination atmosphere.

P.S. Hey Josh, i still got the Hot Cherry seeds for ya. They been in an envelope ready to go for over a week, lol. The temps been so damn cold im afraid to ship em. Assuming that the seeds were dried thoroughly maybe cold temps wont damage em?

RE: 2011 Grow Lists

The last two years I've been at my new home I've just done a couple pots on the patio (2 Jalapeno, 2 Cayenne, and 2 Corno Di Toro last year), but this year I will be re-doing a section of landscaping to put a dedicated garden. Good thing too since I joined in a seed swap earlier and have a lot more varieties I plan on trying out (and more than I have space for):

Mandarin Orange Bells
Yolo Wonder Red Bells
Santa Fe Grande
Jimmy Nardellos
Dragon Claws
Hot and Sweet Cherry Peppers
Trinidad Perfume
Sweet Pickle
Aji Dulce #2
Lemon Drops
Trinidad Scorpions
Calico ornamental
Black Pearl

I've also saved the seeds of some dried peppers that came in a Wanchai Ferry dinner kit (just said dried red chilies on the box) - don't know if they're viable, but it'll be fun to try.


 o
RE: 2011 Grow Lists

Bonnie -

Not sure yet of all the varieties I'm going to grow this year, but am working on it. I started my different Harbenaros this past weekend since I have a short growing seasom for them. They will go in buckets earlier than other peppers this spring and I can easily move/cover them when temps dip....... I won't start my other peppers for another month or so.

I agree with you, the heat level from peppers on the same plant can vary. If a plant gets stressed (i.e. - too little water at times) can increase heat level so that may be part of it.

I grew about 50 varieties between my house and the cabin last year. Planted in buckets and in ground.

Santa Fe Grande and Fresno were very prolific and were great in our canned salsa. Also Pizza, Mariachi, Paper Lantern, College 64, and Volcano produced quite nicely and were used in salsa. Cool Peach is a hot pepper (edging towards harbanero hot) which adds good heat and flavor in salsa too. I guess I could go on and on.

If you want to try any of the peppers I've mentioned and don't have them, drop me an email.

Sandy

RE: 2011 Grow Lists

I have Peppadew seeds - not on any of these lists!

PM if you'd like some seeds.

I grew them last year - first time - and was too chicken to try the fresh fruit. I used them for pickling and at Christmas, the jars were emptied in a heart beat!!

The plants ripened late, so I dug them up and have them overwintering in my basement. Not sure they'll survive, but I am hoping they do so I can get an early jump on the season!!

I will plant in ground again, eventually, and try to take cuttings.

I just organized my stash and may place orders, so I don't have a list yet...but I need to get going and start some seeds!!


 o
RE: 2011 Grow Lists

Bonnie, I'm cutting back on the number of varieties this year, but so far my list includes the following. Most I'm growing for my powder or seed needs, but I'm also trying to expand my stock of superhots:

Aji Amarillo
Bhut Jolokia
Cascabel
Chimayo
Cumari
Datil
Fatalii
Habanero, Brown Congo
Habanero, Cancun
Habanero, Golden
Habanero, Red Savina
Habanero, White
Habanero, White Bullet

Heritage Big Jim
Jalamundo

Peter, Yellow
Peter, Orange
Scotch Bonnet, Chocolate
Scoth Bonnet, Foodarama
Trinidad Scorpion

RE: 2011 Grow Lists

Hi Highalttransplant: If you want to try something a bit hotter than jalapeno, you might want to try Tobago Seasoning. It's not as hot as habanero or Scotch bonnet, and has a very good flavour.

RE: 2011 Grow Lists

RE: 2011 Grow Lists

I plan on growing Aji lemon,bhut jolakia,nu mex heritage #6,datil,fatali,white hab,orange hab,red savina,naga jolakia pc1,jalapeno,cayenne,poblano,chinese five color,tabasco and some mystery purple peppers. I do not know how you guys keep up with so many plants. I struggle with keeping up with this small grow list. But I am a rookie. Good luck to all. May the bugs be nice to us.


 o
RE: 2011 Grow Lists

Thanks, Sandy for the information about Fresno and Sante Fe Grande. I'll definitely put them on my growlist. I received about half a dozen of each in a trade, so hopefully I'll get good germination on them.

Northerner, I have seeds for the Tobago Seasoning, but I'm a little confused about its heat level. The place I got mine from listed it as mild, having very little heat. So I looked it up and the only place that listed it as medium in heat was Seed Savers Exchange. Do you know the source on your seeds?

Bonnie


 o
RE: 2011 Grow Lists

Here's what I've got started:

Anaheim
Golden Cayenne
Fish
Habanero
Jalapeno
Lemon Drop
Soroksari

So far Soroksari, Anaheim, and Lemon Drop are doing great. I'm down to only two Fish plants, but those two look good (the seeds I got had really lousy germination rates). Habaneros are growing veerry sloooowlly. I have them on a heating pad, but they still might be too cold.

 o
RE: 2011 Grow Lists

So far on my list:

Yellow Rocoto - had to start from seed again as my overwintering plants died...have 2 tiny sprouts right now
Jalapenos - every year
Japones - I have a bad habit of picking up those large bags of dried pods in the produce section of WM(just to look at them). There are 1/4" holes in them and darned if seeds don't always drop into my hand. We'll see if they germinate.
Ancho - more WM freebie seeds to try
Chocolate Hab - I'll try to keep them safe from deer this year(along with everything else)
Chimayo, Espelette, or Georgia Flame - haven't decided yet
Serrano - if I remember to buy seeds
Lemon Drop - getting low on dried pods

I know there are more but I haven't gotten around to sorting through my seeds.


 o
RE: 2011 Grow Lists

Well, now that I've finished the Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap, I can focus on this year's pepper crop.

My growlist changed quite a bit since I first posted my growlist. Here is the final version, though I may possibly still add a couple more:

Aji Panca - sowed about a week ago
Aji Yellow - 2 out of 2 are up (Thanks, Ajijoe!)
Alma Paprika - all four are up, yeah!
Ancho Gigantia - 1 out of 2 up so far
Ancho San Luis - 1 out of 2 up so far
Chilhaucle Rojo - sowed about a week ago
Chimayo - 2 out of 2 are up
Choricero - sowed about a week ago
Cosa Arrugada - sowed about a week ago
College 64 - 1 out of 2 up so far
Czechoslovakian Black - one sprouted and fizzled out, resowed
Frank's - 2 out of 2 are up
Fresno - resowed
Georgia Flame - 2 out of 2 are up
Giant Szegedi - 1 out of 2 up
Jimmy Nardello - 1 out of 2 up
Joe E. Parker - 2 out of 2 are up
Kalocsai V2 - resowed, then 1 sprouted the next day from the first sowing
Lemon Drop - 2 out of 2 up (I literally had seeds in my hand to resow, and they suddenly appeared, LOL)
NuMex Espanola Imp.- sowed about a week ago
NuMex Pinata - sowed about a week ago
Peppadew - sowed about a week ago
Pimente de Padron - sowed about a week ago
Sandia - 2 out of 2 are up
Santa Fe Grande - had to resow
Serrano Tampiqueno - 1 is up, and the other is on its way

I'm pretty pleased with the germination so far, considering, I have no heat mat or light set up. That will change soon though. My husband brought home an old light fixture from work, and bought me a grow lamp to go in it. Now he just has to mount it to the table that my peppers are on, and I'll be all set : )

How's everyone else's pepper crop coming along?

Bonnie


 o
RE: 2011 Grow Lists

I have 3 fatali, 2 aji lemon,1 numex heritage 4-6 , 1 datil, 1 chico 111(got in swap not to sure about it) and tons more sowed and our overwinted. Kinda of waiting to see what comes via your awesome swap before i get too crazy. Thank goodness for spring. Let the fun begin. Even though my wife is ready to kill me for my new addiction. She still loves me though( i think).
