Carolina reaper are supposed to be the hottest, about 2,000,000 scoville units; a little of them goes a long way.

Awesome! I love poblanos but for some reason I never really have too much luck with them, probably pick some up at Home Depot & try again. Same w/tomatoes, grow them fine but usually have something else eats them before they get picked. Really want to get something going small scale farm wise to supplement income, been wanting to do the pepper thing for years but not sure if I have enough land.

I have lots of land but also LOTS of deer that love veggies...
So Garden must be fenced in and the fence MUST be over 6 feet high.

I also do a large field of sunflowers for the deer and birds to enjoy at the back of my property. Plan on doing even more sunflowers in the middle of a field for a hunter that leases the property for deer season.

I grew Poblanos for the first time last season, only 4 plants and they did really well. Planting 30+ Poblanos this season.

Large planters in full sun and keep up with water. If you are starting your own then now is the time to start indoors. If buying from a store then wait until you are about ready to plant.

You do anything different for the poblanos than the others?

Poblanos are taking a little longer to germinate but last year I planted them right next to my other peppers and they did great. Make sure your garden drains well so they don't sit in water. fortunately my Garden is on just enough of an incline that everything drains perfectly if I put the rows in the correct direction.

I'm no expert, just follow directions from previous mentors (Dad, Uncle and Friend)
