They are naturally low in fat, calories and sodium; and have zero cholesterol
|ANCHO ST. MARTIN PEPPER
Once restricted by climate to Mexico, this hugely popular, mild
poblano chile rellano type can now be grown almost anywhere thanks
to earlier maturity and improved setting capabilities. Called "Ancho"
when dried, the dark green, 5 1/2" fruits are a favorite for roasting.
One of the mildest chiles, typically just 500 to 1000 Scovilles,
although they sometimes register slightly hotter. A better yielder
than most others of its type.
|BIG BOMB PEPPER
Move over Cherry Bomb - an even earlier cherry
pepper is taking the market by storm! Big Bomb has
it all - vigorous habit, fast cropping and extra-prolific
yields of uniform, 2" fruits that explode with rapid
maturity to a brilliant red. Fruits are moderately
pungent, with thick walls that retain their shape when
pickled. Resilient under a wide range of growing
|"GHOST" PEPPER Bhut Jolokia
From Treehugger.com :Bhut Jolokia when eaten, is described as
the equivalent to dying. It causes an indescribable pain within the
mouth that can last up to an
hour, and if you get a dash of this stuff in your eyes, well, I won't
even go there! Bhut Jolokia has so far had very limited
applications as a XXX spice for daredevils and repellent for
rogue elephants. By smothering the contents of the
peppers onto the fences and trees where elephants are confined, it
creates an almost impenetrable barrier. It seems that elephants are
just as repelled by this super hot pepper as most people are.
|Among the very hottest ever measured! Reportedly 1,000
times hotter than Jalapeno! Lantern-shaped, 1" by 1-1/2"
pods, with thin, wrinkled light green flesh, ripen to a
lovely golden orange. Slow to germinate, and must be
grown in warm, moist conditions. A favorite for sauces.
High-yielding plants grow 36" tall
Very hot, ideal for Mexican dishes. Deep green fruits
mature to red. Sausage-shaped fruits, 3-1/2" by 1-1/2",
are also perfect for pickling. Just like Jalapeno, but
earlier and better adapted to cool coastal conditions.
|NUMEX SUNRISE PEPPER
Developed by a professor at the University of
New Mexico. Medium hot, 4 to 6
inch long by 1-1/2 inch wide fruits on 28 inch tall
plants. Medium green, thick
walled fruits turn bright yellow at maturity
Whether used green or red, this is one very
hot pepper! Flavorful peppers are
perfect for chili sauce, salsa, hot pepper
vinegar and pickles. Vigorous 30" plants
are covered with 2 inch thin-walled fruits
Thai Hot is a Thailand original that's ornamental as well
as edible - if you can stand the heat! Its stocky, 8" plants
are covered with peppers that start out a deep green in
color, then mature to bright red as they grow 2 to 3"
long. Fleshy pods are particularly good in Oriental
dishes and chili. You'll appreciate their beauty in
borders and containers, and savor their flavor in the

A very attractive oregano from England with dark
purple-green leaves and purple flowers in summer

spicy scent is almost costmary-like, and the leaves
can be used in potpourris and in cooking. Does well
in dry sunny places, and bees and butterflies are
drawn to it.
