I've tried growing pepper plants, and never had much luck with them
at any of the 3 different properties where I've lived in Ohio. (NW & SW)
I've used plenty of composted cow manure, mulched the ground around
them with straw, etc. I never get much of a yield. I have gotten large
plants one time, but still didn't get a lot of peppers.
I can't stand hot peppers, but I do like sweet peppers and mild
(pickled) banana peppers. I like jalapeno peppers that have just a tiny
bit of heat to go with cheese and nacho chips.
I'm interested in a variety that is known for amazingly prolific
yields, and also mild enough for someone who just can't stand much of
any pepper heat.
I'd be most likely to eat them fresh, perhaps stuff with some cheese,
or grill them with some kebabs.
