Disappointed...Italian Long Hots...and tomatoes

Post  hammock gal on 10/7/2017, 3:05 pm

Well, I went back to the farm stand today, to see if they had any of the Italian Long Hots that I bought there before. And there they were, baskets full of them! So I bought a bunch and some tomatoes for a salad. I got home and I couldn't wait to taste the peppers after all this time. But oh no...it was not meant to be. These peppers are all hot. HOT!!! And not even flavorful like a habanero, just heat. Definitely not the Italian Long Hots I was hoping for. Ah well.

And the tomatoes! I guess that's the downfall of growing your own tomatoes. Not even the ones from the farm stand can compare. Mad Already dreaming of next year's tomatoes.  drooling hungry

This leads me to wonder if the variable heat peppers you purchased those years ago were hybrids -- maybe the result of unintentional, open-pollinated crosses between traditional long hots and sweet varieties.

Might make an interesting experiment for the next couple of growing seasons.  If I'm in a house by then I may give it a shot, just for grins.
