    looks awesome ...the yellow jalapeno variant will go yellow-green-red and become a fresno, did those just go yellow-red?

    Search for Cowboy Candy for something to use jalapeños both green and red for. I have no idea what to use Ghost Peppers for except chemical warfare.

    i do the candied jalapenos most years, ghost peppers are for the fermentation jars, just a few per jar. i really dont think those are ghost peppers, they are standing up like a thai pepper but shaped like a jalapeno

    My chilli plants are really slow this year because of the cold spring and not very warm summer too. I have flowers on 2 out of 17 plants, 8 varieties (approx., I've forgotten exactly what's what).

    First pic looks like black Hungarian. Second is hard to say. Love growing peppers, I have at least 50 kinds going. It's one of the things you can really find a lot of different flavors by growing yourself.

    The jalapeños i grew last year look like your first pic. They went from black to red and stood up like yours.

    Not sure about any of that, but I see some amazing salsa in your future…

    Too hot here in central Pa. The tomatoes and peppers aren't successfully pollinating. Growing some Krimzon lee hots ( pretty mild) and something sweet. Tomatoes are Marbonne.

    I've grown Ghosts before and they looked nothing like that lol.  My son took one to school and got suspended for giving his classmates pieces to try.  That and YouTube challenges are all they are good for imho
