I’ve been pleased with my crop of peppers this year, I think the warm early summer gave them a boost and they’re now cropping nicely.
Regular readers will know I’m a big fan of chillies and am growing three varieties this year.
The first is Apache which gives an abundance of small, red, fiery-looking fruits.
Then there’s Fatali giving larger odd-shaped yellow fruits.
And finally one of my favourites, Joe’s Long, with chillies up to 30cm long developing a deep red colour. These are a medium (“madras”) strength and I’m looking forward to seeing what the other two taste like.
The first sweet pepper I’m growing is Denver which have cropped well(compared to my previous attempts) with 4 to 6 large fruits per plant.
Etiuda is a variety I’ve grown for a few years – from Eastern Europe I think so can stand a colder summer – and gives nice orange fruits.
Lastly there’s Jumbo which is living up to it’s name giving me the largest pepper of the lot.
And here’s this morning’s harvest…………
I’d be interested in any varieties you have to recommend for next year’s sowing. Have a great weekend all.
