Default Carnival blend Peppers

I've got a few peppers to put in this year, and one package I've picked up was Carnival Blend from Burpee. This will be my first attempt at growing peppers. Wondered if anyone has tried this blend? I've got a few others, albino bullnose, purple beauty & poblano. Curious to hear what any of you have thought of the Carnival Blend if you've tried.

I have tried these blends, and was disappointed.

The artwork suggests a fairly uniform distribution of different colored peppers. What I found was not.

I too tried that blend once, and I got very small peppers which were mostly a darker brown color. They were disappointing to say the least. Part of it could have been me and my failures as a gardener though. I battle heat and wind here which I am working on fixing this year, almost done with the trellises and shade areas I need. Still have to figure out the wind as the trellises don't block as much wind as I thought they would.
