My jalapeno’s are ripening!!!
And I’ve got chocolate peppers:
The big chocolate peppers are sweets. The little ones? Those are habaneros…… The orange ones are Hungarian Hot Wax peppers, and of course I’m sure you all recognize the onions as onions 😉
Speaking of the hot peppers, can someone explain something to me? I’ve always been under the impression that hot peppers are a hot dry climate sort of plant. Not desert dry, but, well, we’re very wet here, and especially this summer we’re decidedly cool. And yet, with the sole exception of last year when everything drowned, I’ve had HUGE luck with the jalapenos, I’ve seen them even withstand a light frost that killed other plants with only minimal leaf damage. The bases of the jalapenos this year are close to an inch in diameter (I tried to get a picture but it didn’t turn out), and they’re falling over with the weight of the peppers. And this year, both habanero plants were TINY when I transplanted them out….and now they’re taking over!
Am I just lucky?
