Downriver 2023 - Pepper Time

Like others, I debated on having a Glog this year, but figured “what the heck”. It's been fun in past years, so let's give it a go.

Hopefully we'll end up posting pictures like this later in the Season! 🤞

FL Bell, Yellow & Red - These seeds came from grocery store bells. This is the F3 or F4 generation. Still staying true...

And to close out this update, here are some peppers that got roasted/smoked. On the left, Prairie Spice (for fajitas), and on the right, Paper Lantern Habanero, for some sauce making. Yum.

The Ghostly Jalapeno Red is a wild looking pepper. Is it delicious?

It's.....ok, lol. Has some heat, thin-walled. I decided to dry it and make flakes/powder. Probably use it as a "hot" cayenne type. And I agree, it does look wild, lol.

It's interesting that the Orange variety doesn't really look like the Red. It's kinda fruity and is hotter.
