Let's talk about all sorts of peppers here.

Here is my main pepper bed. Each plastic cup has a pepper and cups are to stop cutworms.

I still need to mulch but at least they are planted.

This one has some of those heatless hot peppers like Habanera and Aji Delight. Also Trinidad perfume which looks like a hot pepper but hope its not hot.

I don't seem able to resist anything. For some reason I started looking at pepper selections and I came across this one-

All America Selection called Mad Hatter. The shape just gets me and I like the description which said very prolific.

Oh I remember that! I saw it growing last year at the Backyard Farmer Garden on East Campus in Lincoln NE. Didn't get to taste one though.

It was still a bit early in the season, the peppers hadn't colored up yet.

I looked-Rita, how can you resist? Imagine that filled with chicken salad, or cottage cheese. Or baked beans.

Oh no, I have plenty of peppers for this season and they are already planted. I would order these with my seeds for next season.

I also found Mad Hatter at Seeds N Such. Liked their write up about them.

Seeds N Such has some other things I want for next season so probably this fall I will orders from them.

Red Belt is a lamuyo type bell pepper. They are a long type (lamuyo) which are more popular in in Europe. They get a bout 5 inches long x 3.5 inches wide. If you want red let it ripen on the plant. Just think of it as a skinny bell or a fat dark green cubanelle. Other varieties include Lido, Macarena, Magali-R , Jackpot, Reina, Gemini...

It just sounded awefully good to me. Of course I am not gonna order for this year but for next year I am certain I will get seeds of both these peppers I have mentioned.

I am growing Midas first time this year which they say is that lamuyo type. It turns yellow. We will see what I think of it.
