It hasn’t been an especially hot summer so far, but the pepper harvest has been bountiful nonetheless.

You’re looking at Padrón and Carmen peppers. That small red Padrón was incredibly hot. As you know, it’s pepper roulette with the Padrón’s anyway, but if they go red like this guy, watch out. Fair warning.

We’ve been getting a couple of Carmen’s going red each week, just in time for Sunday night grilling. Next year I’d go with more than one of these plants, given the relatively low yield and the high value of the Carmen.
