Strange Pepper and Mystery Plant
by Ellen from Georgia
I have a mystery pepper that came up in the middle of jalapeno and banana peppers. I let it get completely red before picking it hoping it would be sweet. Not the case - it was hot, as hot as the jalapeno. Could it be cross pollination?
In this pepper patch I planted 12 jalapeno's 4 banana peppers, 4 habanero peppers 4 green chili and 4 green pepper. I also planted 4 Tabasco peppers but up at the top of the garden.
All these pepper plants are still producing, I understand now don't ever plant 4 habanero plants.
This is the first year I have done hot peppers, next year more sweet peppers, I have canned, froze, made salsa and pickled peppers.
Thank goodness for a next door neighbor who loves hot peppers he gets a bag every three days.
The last picture is a plant that was given to me and I really don't what it is. It is supposed to be a form of a salad plant?
