Ive had pretty good luck in SoCal with Jalapeno peppers, they vary quite a bit, and I try to get the milder ones, which have turned out great. They continue to produce peppers from the same plant. As in.... 1 plant may be 20 inches high and as big around as a soccer ball, but may produce 24-30 peppers from April - Dec.
They can be different size and shape of course, my crop last year had smaller peppers maybe 4-4.5 inches long and as big around as your thumb, and they were red, in color, not green, as so often they are. But there is a quite a variety of them.
Yes I garden or should I say wife does.
5 different tomatoes
5 different peppers.. Scorpion pepper for fist time
cauliflower. In the winter
okra.. in the winter
squash.. ask the wife
So far the following have sprouted and will be ready for planting soon.
Tomatoes - Cherry 100's, Husky Mediums, Calimari
Peppers- Red, yelllow, green Bells. Big Jim. California Wonder, Cowhorn, Poblano, Pepperoncini, Cherry, and Cayenne.
Squash- Spaghetti, Butternut, and Zuchini
Plus she has a whole grip of flowers and herbs. Not Pops' herbs.
It is looking like we are going to start outdoor planting Thursday afternoon based on the long term forecast. Fingers crossed for no more freezes. We have 10 inch tomato plants, and squash vines already trying to bud indoors.
