My favorite peppers to grow are my own. Every year it changes but I really enjoying growing peppers that I have created. It's exciting seeing what pops up.  Last year my favorites were my Shishito bubblegum cross, TFM scotch bonnet bubblegum cross and a crazy cross of (pink tiger x cbbg) x peachgum that came out carrot orange with one of the best flavors i've ever had in a pepper. 

 

Just for looks I would go with SBS purple, that's a dead sexy pepper plant.

I cant answer the question with one pepper. When I first started growing it was the versatile Jalapeno. Shortly after getting into super hots it was Judy's Brown Moruga. Since that time I have come to relish too many with different heat and flavor profiles of varying degrees. Chocolate Primos and Bhutlahs are a current mainstay, but I still love those old favorites as well.

I started growing datil peppers, because they were my late uncle's favorite. My aunt bought 4 plants a few years ago. After he passed, i took ownership of them. Now I've grown hundreds of them from the seeds of those parent plants.
My current preference is purely sentimental.

Brazilian Starfish moved up a few notches on my list. Its the sweetest pepper over jalapeno heat ive tasted and overall the flavor is excellent. Sofar mine are not a heckuva lot hotter than a jalapeno. Plant is super productive even in a pot.

That cherry flavor is nice. If I was one to eat salads, I'd probably include the Brazilian Starfish in mine.

my local grocery store had those a few weeks ago, never tried them before.  LOVED them.  Saved the seeds and hope to get a bunch for next year.  Bought 3 peppers -- 1 was very hot, the other 2 less hot.  But very fruity.

Right now I'll have to say lemon drop. The heat is low enough to be eaten raw, and the powder is incredible. Favorit super hot so far is Genkish kahns brain. But I love all my peppers :D

If you like Lemon Drops, you must try a Brazilian Starfish. I grew Lemon Drops 2 years in a row from 2 different seed stocks. Excellent pepper but the Starfish blew me away for eating fresh.

My favorite pepper to grow is the Chiltepin.  I grow many pepper varieties each season but always have one of my raised beds growing some type of tepin.  I use them for my tomato based salsa's.  They grow well in hot climates and never seem to be bothered by insects or disease.  I currently have Pima Bajo Chiltepin and Amarillo Chiltepin growing in one of my beds.  The Pima Bajo Chiltepin pepper is black midway through it's growth and then turns to a deep, dark red.  The Amarillo Chiltepin pepper color is yellow when matured.

They are already producing peppers but are green now.  There should be lots of color in a month or so and I'll post another pic then!

My first ripe Fatalii turned completely yellow today. I'm gonna give it a few days to get good and done before I pick it...

The point to this little story is, I got way too excited, seeing that glimmer of yellow amid all that green. I don't know if I'd have been so hype about any other chile I'm growing right now...

You are entering the buttocks with the spicy hand of Chinese pepper? And pleasure from this low pepper? I am not sure but the scorpion pepper musk when raw, is the sexual experience. This is granted, and evident in the taste, and the woman jealous.

My girlfriend loves yellow Fatalli even more than I do. I love cooking with them and eating them fresh.

My favorite pepper to grow may not be my favorite pepper. My favorite pepper for heat and taste is the red 7 pot Primo. They however are a little picky on production and don't produce a lot. The ted Brain Strain is also great for taste and ate very hot. They produce really good early in the season and pumps out piles of pods all year. They ate aslwsys the first for the season to get covered.

I look forward to seeing how that Shishito BBG will develope. What's it like, thin walled and wrinkly like the Shishito? How's the heat?

My favorite to eat is the cumari. They are little bundles of heat and taste great fresh or dehydrated and 3 plants can give me 200 to 300 pods with no work to maintain.

Some look like shishito's with a BBG calyx others are all over the place. I'm sampling everyone green and when ripe and I will have pics and descriptions in my glog as they ripen.  Cheers

This is my first year growing Primos but I grew Brains last year and this year... And I agree. Brains are better growers

Here's an interesting one. Candy Cane. It's variegated throughout the plant and the immature, growing pods are also variegated until they mature. Then they turn solid green, then red. Hmmm.

Anyone up north has to know that the best peppers to grow are ones that you've overwintered.  It's an amazing process to behold.  I have a plant in a bed with about 60 two-inch (and 3-inch) long 7 Pots that are starting to ripen right now.  There's no way I can get that kind of production straight from seed without a lot of intensive early season work.  The first plant I ever overwintered was a Fresno, and I got over 200 chiles off that guy.  The Fresno was producing ripe pods in early July, which is really good for zone 4!
