This year's chile plant lineup:

Jalapeño Early
Super Chile Hybrid
Flame Fountain
Georgia Flame
Cobra
Ring of Fire
Bahamian
Poinsettia
PA 353 Red





I hope I have better luck this year than last. With 60+ days over 100ºF, the plants went dormant and didn't start producing fruit until late September. Then we had an early freeze, so though I got some green pods, I harvested very few ripe pods.

What are y'all other chile-heads growing (or planning to) this season?

I've never grown any. What varieties would work best in the humid midatlantic climate?

As long it's not too rainy (chiles like it on the dry side), I'd think any early or mid-season varieties would do OK there.

The descriptions at chileplants.com include this information for each variety.

All of mine this year are early/mid season -- a knee-jerk after last year's weirdly shortened growing season down here.

I was aghast last year as I actually had to buy red chiles to augment my own meager yield in order to make my batch of traditional Red Pepper Jelly for the holidays.

I have a number of people depending upon me for their yearly fix.

I have plenty of green pods in my freezer awaiting my next batch of Green Chile Jelly.
