Chillies and sweet pepper varieties

It's always a challenge, knowing what to sow and having the space to grow them.

Pointy peppers from fresh seeds.
They are at the 'just growing 2 true leaves' stage.

    I'm growing Apache & Spangles chillies, both at the 6/8 true leaves stage. I sowed them in Feb cos' they need a long season to get to fruiting. Spangles is a new one for me - with unusual 'strawberry' shaped fruits that go through a range of colours.

    But I've still got frozen Apache chillies from the last two years. So I really only need one of each plant  :|

    I play with plants and soil and sometimes it's successful

    I always grow Jalapeno and for something a bit more daring, this year I'm trying Hotscotch - a mix of habanero and scotch bonnet.
    I've still got a few bags of last years Hungarian Yellow Wax in the freezer.
    For peppers I grow Corno di toro rosso.
    The first true leaves are just showing on all of them

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I'm growing two types:

    6 x Corno di Toro Rosso sweet pepper
    2 x Cayenne hot pepper

    I've grown peppers before but this is my first time starting from seed.
