My favourite pepper

Tuesday 16 June, 2015 by Uncle Spike

We grow a few types of peppers each summer; basically because it’s the easiest veg to produce in this hot/dry climate, and can be dried, frozen, and used in many many ways. In fact, in terms of weather, the hotter it is the better the plants seem to love it – subject to some water every four or five days.

This pepper is the first to appear and their plants will produce continually through till late October if the weather holds.The flowers are only there briefly before the peppers start to grow.

This type is long and thin, and sweet tasting. We eat them raw (often straight from the plant while picking – no chemicals used) as a side to most meals. If there are loads that day, then I’ll happily scoff my way through thirty of them 🙂

  2. I was certain these were hot peppers…wrong. My father was Hungarian, they like them really hot. They’d challenge each other at dinner…eating them until they were crying. lol
