Who grows peppers and what kind? I mainly grow hot to extremely hot peppers but also enjoy growing pimento peppers (red and tangerine) and red bells. The native chili pequin is my family favorite for generations so that is a must do every year for salsa. The hottest I have grown over the past few years are the caribbean red habaneros I started over ten years ago (my favorite red hab), devils tongue and the yellow fatalii from africa. I taste the chilies in the field while harvesting and almost fell off the bucket I was sitting on after chomping a yellow fatalii last year. That's saying something if ya know just what kind of a chilihead I am!!
