Need a good pictorial reference for chiles

In my local grocery stores, I'm seeing more and more chiles and I have no idea what they are. I know the jalapenos, habaneros, and Thai chiles, but many are not familiar to me.


Do any of you know of a good referemce with pictures so that I can acquaint myself? Please help me.


Toni

This website has a lot of different chiles, and some additional plants as well, with good pics.

There is some good information at the Photo Gallery. I plan to grow some peppers this Spring, and it helps to know how they'll look during different stages of the growing cycle. Thank you so much.

Katie,

I found a great link for chiles. Also found out that the Red Savina Habenero is no longer the hottest pepper in the world! This is a really good site and I think that people can buy seeds here, too.

This is a Hungarian site, very nice guy.
He collects seeds from all over the world and grows them on a balcony.
I talk to him often (well, easy for me, I'm Hungarian)

If you are looking for a pretty good guide to dry chilies I sometimes refer to;

Cook's Thesaurus: Dried Chiles

Enjoy,
Bryan
