Those have to be chili de arbols, they look too much like them not to be. Chili de arbols are plenty hot and they have some excellent flavor too. Hot peppers are real good at cross pollinating and I've never gotten a good result from it..lost my favorite hot pepper that way. I had been growing a particular hot pepper for several years and saving the seeds from year to year and then one year I planted some tabasco peppers and they crossed with the ones I liked and had been planting for years and that was the end of that, everything the next year was tabasco, which is not a very good pepper comparatively. So, now I just grow chili de arbols and grow the plants myself. This year I did buy a six pack of Hungarian hot wax peppers late in the spring when I saw they had marked all the plants half off. They're looking pretty good right now except they turned out to be bell peppers.Jogeephus":3pqjre5d said:ga.prime":3pqjre5d said:Are those chili de arbols?

I think a lot of the bulk in the basket are but I couldn't swear to it. I have several different varieties but some must have crossed last year and the seed isn't bearing fruit true to flavor. I ate what was supposed to be and looked to be a sweet banana pepper yesterday and it lit me up pretty good. So I'm not really sure what these are to be honest. All are very hot.
That salesman sure saw you coming Joe...Jogeephus":2bjeoewf said:I think they are arbols. Look and taste like it but the cross pollination thing has me a little unsure.
:lol: I feel your pain. I bought a few bundles of "bell peppers" that came out of the surplus of a truck farmer and they all turned out to be banana peppers. Except 2 of them. 2 out of 75 is pretty poor odds don't you think? Can't bytch though cause the price was right.
Yep, me and my wife canned twice already and she's through with it, so looking at going to the canning plant now. Going to make a couple of calls in the morning and see if I can work something out.Jogeephus":btgpxv1v said:GP, I think you got your work cut out for you.
Thanks, wb. We can or freeze what we want and I give the rest to my children and other friends and relatives. Have sold some in the past, but to be worthwhile that takes a pretty good commitment in time and effort that I would rather invest in other endeavors.willow bottom":1y25kwye said:Looks good! Do you sell any of that or just put it up for yourself?
