I love the habanero taste fresh, but I'm a lightweight when it comes to gnawing on that kinda heat outside in the heat. Habanero used to be my favorite, but this year I grew lemondrops and absolutely love the flavor! The heat is also very manageable. What's your favorite pepper to eat fresh and why? (waiting for people to misread the title as "flesh-eating")

I like them all fresh. When I grew lemon drops I hated them. Weird.

i have limited experience with hot peppers but eating fresh is a tie between cowhorn and jajapeno. both have similar heat which is tolerable. for sweet peppers my choice is lunchbox orange snacking pepper. each year i grow different peppers so my favorites will change from year to year.

Calabrese Cherry Pepper.  Nice, thick walled pepper.  Hot but but not so hot you can only eat one.

Brazilian Starfish. Very sweet and tasty, with just a mild burn.

Kind of has a cherry taste. I feel like I'd cut them up in salad if I was someone that eats salads.

It seems like Baccatums are popular snacks.

Brazilian Starfish are stellar fresh


Many jalapenos


This year i was also floored by Tekne Dolmasi and Bell of Gollu from pepperlover. Antep Aci Dolma if you want a sweet heat bell.

I don't personally have a favorite, but I've been peer pressuring all of my cycling/drinking buddies into eating pods all the time and the hands-down most popular out of what I grew this year is the humble Serrano.

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.

I like eating a fresh Fatalii with some of my meals. I love the flavor and enjoy the heat on them.

Orange manzano. The few times I've been lucky enough to get my hands on some, I've eaten them just like an apple. Freakin' delicious!

Brazilian Starfish, Tepin x Lemon Drop, Cream Fatalii... Aji Lemon Drop, Pimente Barra do Ribeiro... Yellow Manzano... Ethiopian Brown, Aji Jobito... Aji Margariteno... Aji Rosita Red

So many peppers, so little time!             GO  BUCKEYES !            Anymore, it seems the only thing I get done quickly is get older
