I have very little success in my garden with peppers, hot or sweet. They just don't like to pollinate! Cherry Bombs on the other hand always produce early and consistantly through out the season. I brine them for about a month (green and red), core and stuff them and pack them in olive oil. Myself and many of my friends are addicted to these stuffed peppers. Cherry Bombs are great!

NOT a habanero type! Our earliest hot pepper to ripen. A reliable and very heavy producer. Good green or red. Thick hot flesh excellent for pickling, can substitute for jalapenos which are later to ripen. Also good to dry and grind for hot pepper flakes. Cherry Bomb and Hungarian Wax are our two most reliable and prolific hot peppers.
