Got the chance to go and pick some Vallecito Wax Peppers today, on the farm where the Ferbotnik family grew them starting back in the late 40's.

Did 12 pints, ran out of lids, so I'll finish up tomorrow. ;D

You'd have to call these a "Heirloom variety". The family have saved the seeds from their plants since 1948. Some of the pepper plants were waist high, and are prolific producers. At one point in time, they had ten thousand plants in the fields, all started from their seed in a green house located right on the property.

Nice little story behind those peppers. Looks good with a nice cheese and a frosty cold Pabts.
