Those look like fresno peppers. Usually they are a little hotter than jalapenos but less than a serrano. But they could be "mirasol" Or something else
Thanks, I’ve never seen a Fresno pepper. After reading a wiki on them, I have to agree. They have been great to cook with. Relatively thin skin and wall. I may grow 1 next year. I miss having Anaheim this year. My starts were left out in the wind and didn't survive. Bought these at HD with an Anaheim tag in the flat.Those look like fresno peppers.

Good to know, I’ve never frozen my peppers. My peppers were gang busters this year. I have to find more uses for them. Planted too many. A Plus is the deer won’t eat them. Everyone here made me realize I need some heat varieties for fermenting sauce.Frozen work. If you want to make sure you have a live lacto culture, just make some kraut. Add a couple tbs of your homemade kraut juice to the ferment. Works fine.
About 2 years ago I had a bumper crop of serrano peppers ("Hot Rod" hybrid). They were as big as jalapenos, just skinnier. I sliced and dehydrated lots and lots of them; red ones, green ones, and mixed. I have about a quart and a half left; they are awesome. It's amazing how hot they are, I have to be careful not to add too many to a pot of soup or beans or whatever.Just picked the rest of my jalapenos. The last ones are all small. They have been for the last month or so. I dried the last of my Numex Orange spice for extra hot jala powder. Cut the pods into rings so they dry fast. Then put the dried rings in just about anything with a lid like a quart plastic container. Fill it about 1/3rd of the way.
SHAKE THE HELL OUT OF IT.....At least 3/4 of the seeds will fall out. Either save the dried rings or grind into powder. Ive got 2 other milder jalas so im drying those too then combine all the powders. Numex by themselves are crazy hot for jalapeno.
How is the flavor of these cayenne compared to the smaller size? I'm going to be building a garden this winter and cayennes are my #1 plant.There are seeds in probably 2/3rds of the pod. They dont seem to be as seedy this year vs last but they are still fairly seedy. That last one i saved just for seeds. Its sort of a pain to make a nice cut in them for a good pic.
Next year im going to try at least 1 plant in a grow bag with fresh media. Production however is great just in a hard pot. I just want to see if i can improve plant size a little. They have been very heavy producers 2 years in a row.
This was last years plant
And this is the Thunder Mountain that was less than 3ft away
This years plants look like they might be a cross
I should be good for a long time. Living in southern New Mexico has meant always having a freezer full of hot and very hot green chiles, and jalapenos find their way into much of our cooking. But habaneros and ghost peppers don't fit into our regular cuisine-too much heat and too little flavor.Large scale study finds correlation between consumption of spicy capsicums and ‘significant’ reductions in disease mortalitywww.independent.co.uk
That is huge!I’m trying out this 100 gallon grow bag this year. Hoping it does well.
i like the compostable weed barrier! We used to use newspaper layered 1/4” thick then till them in at the end of the season. It got too hard to collect enough papers to do the job, but never considered cardboard would do the trick.I’m trying out this 100 gallon grow bag this year. Hoping it does well.
