why not start growing your own peppers



Peppers are one of the easiest and most satisfying vegetable plants to grow, and a great christmas gift. From fruity sweet peppers in rainbow shades of yellow, orange, or red to habaneros hot enough to bring tears to your eyes, all peppers share a preference for a long, warm growing season.  Keep your seedlings indoors at night, and move them to a protected sunny spot outdoors during the day.

When growing peppers, choose a range of varieties, for a wonderful mix of both flavors and fruit sizes. Under hot summer conditions, varieties that bear huge fruits may shed their blossoms, but small, thin-walled peppers often keep going strong. Small-fruited peppers also ripen faster.

As peppers change from green to yellow, orange, or red, both their flavor and their vitamin content improves dramatically.
