Hot Peppers Red Hot Peppers.

Four plants in the garden produce about three quarts of peppers. These were planted 1 June 2008, purchased form a supplier with no cultivar name, just hot peppers. They will be dried and blended to produce a semi-powder used similarly as one would paprika.

The peppers are indeed hot, and have sufficient capsaicin for most palates. I like the larger hot peppers, since they are easy to pick and the capsaicin is more than adequate.

When growing, the plants are supplied with a cup of vinegar in about a liter of water periodically during the growing season to keep the roots in a local acid acid environment.
