I've just gotten back into gardening on a very small scale. I have a 2'x7' table top soil-less mix(a la Bartholomew's Square Foot Gardening) herb garden and 3 table tops for other planting. One of the beds is 4'x8' and two are 4'x4'. I missed getting any winter plants in and it's getting late for early summer stuff; but I'm determined to have something to harvest this year. Last year, a neighbor - who has since moved away - grew a bunch of different peppers. He is married to a lady of Japanese descent and growing the peppers was a way of showing respect for his mother-in-law. I never did find out what varieties of peppers he planted. Can anyone suggest what varieties they might have been? I don't have any pics. The pods when grown were just over an inch - maybe and inch and a half long - and were green and waxy looking. Of course they dried to a dark red color. I'm in central Texas where the summers are hot if that matters as to varieties. I'd really appreciate your suggestions.
