    Default Growing peppers in Alaska

    They have to be in a greenhouse, and aphids love them, this factor alone discourages many from attempting peppers. If you do have a greenhouse, put your peppers in baskets up in the rafters, the peppers love the heat and the aphids hate it. This year I am growing 4 different kinds of bell peppers, some are huge, along with Giant Marconi, Sweet Banana, Jalafuego, and the Tex Mex version too, Anaheim, Habanero Red,(devestating hot), Golden Cayenne(very hot) and Kung Pao, which produces like mad on huge plants. Habenaro was the last to set fruit, but there's a bunch of those little gems from the pit of the underworld, everything else is loaded to the max.

    Default Jalafeugo and Giant Marconi

    Both of these yield great, and both taste great, the Jalafuego is top notch Jalapeno all the way

    Wow Mark, yours look great.
    I have had marginal success in the past since the aphids usually hammer on them, including green peppers.
    They make their way into the the green house, thus I have called it quits on peppers.

    Default Kung Pao peppers

    Good but warm, great producers on really cool looking plants, about 10,000SU's, a bit hotter than Jalafuego's

    Default Habanero Red

    I think these came from the underworld, 285,000SU's, tongue numbers. All right you chickens, any takers?
    Good producers after they get going. Wow!
