Peppers like relatively fertile soil in my experience. Really, it seems like they like a lot of everything... nutrients, sun, and water.

My jalapeños, bell peppers, and tomatoes didn't do well in full afternoon sun last year. Only when I moved them to afternoon shade did they take off. The banana peppers went crazy, though.

Yeah, this is definitely true of established plants. I actually went back and looked at my notes from when I grew them. I had a hard time getting them to germinate, so I went "all out," but peppers are not a full-sun plant.

I'll be coming for some sauce recipes in a month or two, u/AmericanMuskrat.

We were just talking about this the other day! The consensus was that you should roast the chiles in vinegar and then (blend?) them?

A little vinegar, or lime juice, goes in, for the acidity, but it's not roasted in vinegar. I deseed the tomatoes, roast the tomatoes, onion, garlic, and peppers. The tomato skins get removed. It has to cool (hot stuff in a blender is no bueno without a vent), and blend it with cilantro. Then I tend to add some finely diced fresh tomatoes by hand also.

u/Zapped - we expect pics of your bounty.

Oh man, two of the hottest peppers ever. RIP.

It's a bold play, let's see if it works out for his anus.
