Hot sauces aside, what's your favorite chili, for growing or eating?
There's a "Super Chili" that my parents have grown for a few years that's a nice combo of flavour and heat (i.e. hot enough for spiceheads, but won't blow your brains out if you add one or two to a dish).
The plant produces approximately 2" slightly cone-shaped (upright IIRC) chilies like crazy. It's also a hybrid, so you get some fun varieties if you replant the seeds... short plants, tall plants, skinny chilies, fat chilies, hot chilies, mild chilies.
I usually buy red or green Thai-type chilies these days, and sometimes something milder like a Seranno if I want green chilies with some bulk to them. There's generally a few Habaneros in the freezer, which I'll grab if they're on sale.
