I only grow a few peppers/chilis, just enough to get some glasses of flakes. The flakes are always a mixture of different varieties.

End of November, when I was still in Bangkok, I bought some fresh pods in a supermarket, took them home and de-seeded them here. Of course I'll grow them here:

Large Green Pepper (very mild, almost no heat)
Large Red Pepper (hot)
Red Bird Pepper (very hot)

In Thailand, every restaurant offers a small bowl of the last two varieties in a secret liquid. You can add this liquid with the peppers (cut into small rings) to your dish.

I'll also grow Aleppo Pepper and hope that Apache (overwintered on a window-sill) will continue to produce.

PS: I forgot 3 more varieties:

Laotian Pepper
Sarit Gat
Persien

I could not find anything about Persien - any info would be appreciated!

Of those, I've grown Feher Ozon, and Aji Dulce (if you meant #1, the one with fruits that look like pointy flying saucers).

I liked the vigor and production of Feher Ozon. Thick walls. Mild taste. Small plant. Similar to Lipstick, with a different color and flavor. Does well in containers. Early enough, but not my earliest or anything.

Aji Dulce #1 is my favorite pepper for taste, and I've even only ever had it green (at which point it has very little heat and a whole lot of fruity flavor). Excellent in raw salsa (I added bunching onion greens to it, too). Very productive. Not early, but it can produce here. The frost came before any ripened fully.

Nice lists!

Haven't finalized mine yet, but rocotos are on the list (again). Since they are such a long season plant, I started seeds for 3 varieties on Jan 1st. I'll be starting any futescens, other Pubescens and Baccatums in the next week or two. Chinenses on 2/01 and finally Annuums on 3/01.

Guess I better start finalizing lol.

Good luck with your 2020 grows!

Haven't finalized mine yet either but, off the top of my head, I'll at least be growing:

-several Yellow Scotch Bonnet strains
-Chocolate Scotch Bonnets
-Scotch Brains (Bonnet x 7 Pot Brain Strain cross)
-7 Pot Douglahs
-7 Pot White
-7 Pot Bubblegum White
-SB7J, red and yellow (Scotch Bonnet x 7 Pot Jonah cross)
-Carolina Reaper
-Reaper x Moruga Scorpion
-Chocolate Moruga Scorpion
-Chocolate Bhutlah
-"Super" Bhut Jolokia (HUGE pods!)
-White Bhut Jolokia
-Bahamian Goat
-Jamaican Hot Chocolate
-"Star Scream" (new superhot variety)
-Leviathan Gnarly Scorpion
-Aji Pineapple

Probably a bunch more too.

Plus, I always end up grabbing a couple of jalapeño plants from the big box store. I can't resist a raw, ripe, red peño ;)

Thanks for the info. I got that from the various seed vendors online researching. I grew Aleppo last year and they were short stubby peppers, the flavor was outstanding. I did notice a few vendors claiming there's two strains going around and I ordered some new seed to compare to what I have.

The Orangeevoye Chudo - spelling is off. Should be Oranzhevoye Chudo. It's a sweet orange bell.

I only grow the sweet bells... Ace, Flavorburst, Gourmet. And I have waaaaaay better success with them in hydro than in ground.

Right now I'm looking at a large collection of seeds trying to decide how to trim it down by at least 20%.

I've grown about a third of these in the past. Last year I grew a lot more chinense types and made a lot of sauce, but have decided I want more big ones to grill, fry and eat fresh. I've enjoyed growing Joe E. Parker as an anaheim type for several years and thought I'd grow several plants of that, but then started considering maybe I should try other anaheim types, so now I've got five of those in the list to trial against Parker. Similarly, I had a great Pablano from Victory seeds that was a huge productive plant and we used the peppers in a lot of ways, so now I'm trying a couple of hybrid Pablanos as well. And then when you order things, people send you other ones you might like...

Anyway, if anyone sees some that weren't very good in their experience, please let me know so I can consider cutting them. There are always varieties that I make decisions tough, like Beaver Dam which was early and great to eat fresh or cook with, but didn't seem to like the heat and wasn't very productive overall. If it was more productive the choice would be easy, but space is limited...

Sweet Pickles
Sweet Banana
Ajvarski
Elephant Ear
Tekne Dolmasi
Kapia Paprika
Sigaretta Di Bergamo
Pepperone di Senise
Giant Aconcaqua
Carmen
Escamillo
Rezha
Mini Piperka (small Rheza)
Beaver Dam
Binquinho Yellow
Binquinho Red
Kardoula
Aci Sivri
Thunder Mountain Longhorn
Thunder Cacho Red
Baron (Pablano hybrid)
Bastan (Pablano hybrid)
Farmers Jalapeno
Zapotec
Lemon Spice Jalapeno
Stuard Jalapeno
Jalapeno Gigantia
Lemon Drop
Shishito
Padron
Numex Big Jim
Big Jim Legacy
Joe E. Parker
Hatch Mild Green
Double Cross - Anaheim
Zia Pueblo
Acoma Pueblo

Aji Colorado

Scarlet Lantern
Sugar Rush Peach
KS Lemon Starburst
7-Pot Primo

If you still have room, you may want to consider trying the Pueblo Chile, Mosco strain, listed in the link below. It is very popular here in Southern Colorado and seeds can be obtained from Burrell Seeds in Rocky Ford, Colorado.

I grew Bastan (hybrid) this last season. I was very pleased with the size of the peppers and the flavor. The plant can get large - give it plenty of room and be prepared to support the branches. Production was outstanding.

Zendog, I've grown Sweet Pickle. It is primarily an ornamental. It is edible, but not particularly tasty. Peppers are small (1-2") and thin walled. Plant is very small in a pot, and it's tough as nails, but I really wouldn't recommend it for eating.

The breeder of the Orange Carbonero pepper is a really into flavor, and he liked Primo peppers a lot, last I checked. I wouldn't cut that one personally, but that's me. I haven't tried it, however.

Yes, I have heard people call it "Oh Mercy" and "Don't Try This at Home".
