Introducing the Peter Pepper

They're easy to grow. In fact, they grow quite quickly, almost on their own.

   

In certain weather conditions, shrinkage may occur.


They're hot. Very hot. 


 Size seems to bear no effect on their potency.



No two are alike.

I'm growing these too! And I giggle every time I pick one.

we had a batch of red peppers that ended up looking a lot like these. I didn't want to mention shrinkage but...well, now you've made it ok! ;-)

our weather has been so wild this year, few crops are looking as they should. Though even thru this zig-zag summer of waaaaay too hot or darn cold, the zucchini and green beans have made it juuuust fine.

Hmmm .... it took this Brit a few minutes to work out the joke! I do see it now though, especially the bit about shrinkage! We had a couple of peppers like that this year - but we're British, we don't like to talk about such things.

They're so cute! I'm looking in my seed catalogue for them now. I haven't had much luck with my chillies lately. nemotodes, maybe.

I grew mine from seed, then transplanted them into about a 1-gallon pot. They seemed to take a while. I just pulled the first three this past week.
