This large, smooth, and somewhat flat, mildly hot chile is 7 1/2″ long. For an Anaheim, Charger has thicker flesh and an earlier maturity than most others. Charger is great for fire roasting. The medium-large plant is strong with an excellent canopy.
Desperado is a large-fruited Anaheim type pepper with mid-early maturity and great yield potential on a sturdy mid-size plant with good cover. Fruit are light green with an attractive glossy look and thick walls. Fruits ‘decap’ well, making them well suited for fresh and processing markets. Pungency is mild and ideal for roasting.
Hitman is a new open field Poblano pepper that has an attractive, dark green, glossy color. The well-covered plant offers protection for the fruit from the sun and produces high yields of uniformly large, dark-green fruit. Its medium-early maturity and high percentage of 2 lobe peppers make this an excellent choice for growers throughout the Eastern U.S.
Masivo has “the right” look with flattened, two-lobed fruit, and a shallow stem indent. Masivo is not quite so adapted to heat as is San Ardo, but will produce larger, thicker-walled fruit. It holds its size well.
