What are the pros? Easy to grow, Hardy
What are the cons? Low yield
These are my standard homegrown jalape?os for the last three years. Germination is excellent, the plants are very hardy, and they maintain a fairly compact mature size. The only drawback is yield: you get just a handful of peppers per plant. That's easy to address, however: just grow more plants! I usually set out four of them each year now, which produce more than enough peppers to smoke, pickle, and eat fresh. I start peppers in february, inside, and by the time I plant out in may, there are always a few tiny peppers on each plant, so I'm eating fresh Black Hungarians starting in June. One caveat: they are definitely hotter than store-bought green jalape?o peppers, both when black as well as red.

What are the pros? smoked, makes great chipotle.
What are the cons? medium yield.
Always reliable, medium harvest, when smoked makes the fruitiest chipotle en adobo. Lasts in frig all year.

What are the pros? Lots of fruit
What are the cons? small, very seedy
These are very pretty plants with dark purple flowers, easy to grow. The pods were smaller than advertised (about 1-2 in, instead of 3-4). I found them to be very seedy with thinner walls than my jalapenos. I usually pick them when dark purple, but am anxious to try some red. Plants are pretty prolific. Not sure I would grow them again as I have limited space and have a few other heirlooms I would like to try.

What are the pros? Everything
What are the cons? Nothing
Great pepper. Excellent fresh cut or in cooking. We had a very late spring, but still had abundant crop. A nice heat, but not overpowering. Sweeter than a Jalapeno and beautiful when matured to Red. We found flavor to be best immediately after maturing to red.

What are the pros? Plant/bloom color, taste
What are the cons? None
I really enjoyed growing this pepper last year. The plant was streaked with green, purple and black and dotted with purple flowers. I used the peppers during all of their colors and enjoyed them. I think my favorite was once they were red, dicing them up and sauteing them with scrambled eggs for breakfast. Germination was a little slow but I had a great germination rate.
