Peppers are going to take a few days to post. ( thunk fans, my thursday thunks will post later today ) First let me explain that there are many basic types of peppers. Bell, Cayenne, Cubanelle, Pequin, Aji, Habanero, Blocky, Cluster, Anaheim, Ancho/poblano, Tabasco, Lantern, Banana,Chiltepin, Jalapeno, Cherry, Serrano, Peperoncini, Squash - wow. Each of these have many different types of plants whose peppers range in sweetness/heat, size, color, ripening time. So one pepper that is an anaheim can be a completely different heat/ size/ color than another. I never knew this until recently. I thought habanero was the pepper- i didn't realize there were almost 100 different habanero's out there. Granted a lot of this is due to hybridization, but still makes picking out peppers a bit tough for me.
This is Pequin Large black Chili. As the name implies, it is a Pequin pepper, it really doesn't have a large pepper IMHO, 1" long by 1/2 " wide. It is a late season pepper with purple leaves ( kinda cool) and black fruit that turns brown then red. ( here's a secret for all hot peppers - it is kind of counter intuitive. The longer you leave it on the plant and the more it ripens - the more heat it loses) This is "merely" a hot pepper.
The large pepper on the right side of the picture is a Patriot hybrid. This is a sweet bell pepper, 4-5" long by 3.5-4.5" wide., it is a midseason pepper that ripens from green to red.
This is the Jamaican Gold pepper. It is a hot, squash pepper - 1.5" tall by 1.75" wide. It is a prolific ,mid season pepper that matures from green to gold.
Meet the "Masquerade pepper". It is a hot cluster pepper ( you can see it already has a cluster of peppers) 3" long by 1/2" wide that goes from green to purple to red.
Here is bouquet, a medium heat, pequin pepper 2/3" long x 1/2" wide, matures from purple to orange to red,
This is gypsy, a sweet Cubanelle frying pepper 4.5" long x 2" wide ranges from pale yellow to orange red. Definitely a fun pepper to cook with!
Lastly one of my personal favorites- the cowhorn chili.a medium heat anaheim pepper. 6-8" long x 1 1/4" wide it matures from green to red, but sometimes green to yellow ( no idea why the color change) . It is a super versatile pepper to cook with.
