Peppers – Every kind except Bell

Peppers in the HOT California sunshine

I love peppers!  Every kind except for bell peppers.

And until I left the midwest if you asked me how many peppers there were i would have told you green peppers, yellow-green peppers and green bell peppers that have turned red.  AMEN.  But now that I know that there are a plethora of peppers, I may never eat a bell pepper again.  (sorry mom, mike and dad).  Yuk!

So, this year I am growing jalapeno, Serrano, and anacho for starters. They sure love the heat of summer.  How ironic huh?  Hot peppers love heat?  Go figure.  Well, that is all that i have to write on peppers, except for this.

If you have a flower-pot and want to grow a very green, tidy plant that will only get about 16 inches tall, has delicate little white flowers and eventually peppers that hang like well-arranged ornaments on a tree, then a jalapeno pepper plant is for you.  Or, you could try to grow a fire-cracker pepper when the little peppers are bright red and in clusters.  So cute.  So tidy.  So easy to look at.  You don’t even have to eat them.
