Good morning! @trish , you mentioned in a previous podcast that you tried some fun new sweet peppers. What were they? I'm sure many of us share the same excitement about peppers as you do.

For me personally, I am excited to try some peppers from New Mexico. NM is famous for their red and green chilies. There is one called, "Cochiti" from Native Seed SEARCH that I am going to try. The Cochiti are a native people that live there in the south west.

What peppers are you guys excited about?

Some nice restas (not sure of the spelling and spell check doesn't know either) Whistling Anyway, I usually grow some Anaheim type peppers from seeds I get from the Sandia area around Albuquerque, NM, and also some Hatch chilis. This year I didn't start any of them, and it's just as well, as my peppers are not doing well this year. We had such a cold and wet spring, that they are just now starting to look like they might produce a few this year. I've been saving seeds for years. They do last a long time. The person that used to send me seeds from NM died this spring, so I will have to go with the ones I have saved from now on. I love the smell of roasting green chilis on the grill in the fall. I've become a fan of the pablano pepper and chili rellenos so I grow more of them.

@tveguy I was in Bernalillo this past June at the basement of the sandia mountains. I keep that area. It has a special place in my heart now and I want to try and grow some of the peppers from there. I have found peppers do best up here in pots.

Checkout native seed search online to get some more seeds if you need them.

The Sandia Mountains are very nice. I rode the tram car up to the top, I guess it's more then a mile above ground, one of the highest or the highest, not sure. Anyway good to know I can still get some sandia chilies with out going to NM.
