Oh OK I guess I could try some different kinds and not only bells and bananas
I don't have much of a pallet for hot
But I admire any one who can enjoy the really hot peppers.

The peppers are really good for you though as far as nutrition is concerned. And they don't have to be hot for that. I have been incorporating more of the sweet peppers into the dishes that I prepare and my daughter and son-in-law are seemingly enjoying them.

I love peppers too! I can't take it to hot though! I have been roasting my own bell peppers lately.........I really like them that way. I am going to roast some today!
They make a sandwich yummy! I put them on a toasted cibatta roll along with some roasted zucchini, onions, mushrooms, and some provolone or mozzarella! I don't even miss the meat!

For me part of the fun is matching peppers to the heat level that others enjoy. I'm not one of those people who thinks it's funny to slip a person a pepper too hot for their comfort level. And even in the sweet peppers there is some variety in flavors. Once I started growing Italian heirloom sweet peppers, I swore I would never go back to bells!
Flowers4Yeshua, most of those sites are using information from other sites. The mac daddy of pepper information sites these days is http://www.thechileman.org/

One of the sites you mentioned is using the descriptions from chileplants.com. I'd guess they ordered their peppers from there.

I do love peppers...I also love to make salsa...have been told though ...that my mild is what most think is hot...
Ha, yeah, heat is relative!
