This page gives instructions on how to buy doomsday hybrid pepper seeds from David's Garden Seeds®.
Bell pepper and the Matadores are great for eating and stuffing. The rest of the peppers are good for drying and using as a seasoning. The hotter ones can be used as an insect repellent.
For good hybrid bell peppers, David recommends the Intruder and the Red Knight. You can try growing the Bianca which starts off as white but if left on the vine matures to red. Many people are used to green and red peppers. A white one may make scavengers think there is something wrong with it.
Bianca Bell Pepper 1000 Hybrid Seeds
Ivory-colored bells. Medium-large, 4-lobed, and blocky. Fruits have a mild flavor and ripen to scarlet red. Sturdy plants yield well; good leaf cover protects the fruit from sun scald. High resistance to tobacco mosaic virus.
Harvest in about 65 days for white color.
Intruder Bell Pepper 1000 Hybrid Seeds
Intruder fruits are large, blocky bells with thick walls. Plants are medium large with a good canopy to minimize sunscald. Well adapted to the Northeast but also grown in the Midwest. High resistance to bacterial leaf spot races 1 to 3, tomato etch virus, and tobacco mosaic virus; and intermediate resistance to phytophthera root rot. You should be able to get about 200 peppers from 25 seeds.
Harvest in about 62 days for green to 72 days for red.
Red Knight Bell Pepper 1000 Hybrid Seeds
King Arthur type with better disease resistance and a more compact open plant. Get a jump on the season with a large, early, green-to-red pepper. Big, blocky, thick-walled bell pepper turns red early. Fruity and sweet. Widely adapted. High resistance to bacterial leaf spot races 1 to 3 and potato virus Y.
Harvest in 57 days for green and 77 days for red.
The cayenne peppers David likes are the Bangkok and the Kilian.
Bangkok Cayenne Pepper 1000 Hybrid Seeds
Small, very hot Thai chile. Bangkok's small, fiery-hot fruits average three inches and set heavily on big, upright plants. Suitable for using green or red at the fresh stage or dried for making hot pepper flakes or mini ristras. This type of pepper is commonly grown in Southeast Asia and China.
Harvest in 80 to 100 days.
Kilian Cayenne Pepper 1000 Hybrid Seeds

For Hot Peppers you may want to try the Habanero Rey Pakal and the Mattadores which is a stuffing pepper.

For jalapeno peppers grow the El Jefe and the Jalafuego.
