I love the way that peppers change colors the longer they stay on the vine. Gorgeous picture.

I’m trying to overlook it but I’m having pepper envy. On several levels.

Well said WC. I didn’t want to say anthing juvenile that I might regret the next day. That is a damn beautiful, colorful, spicy looking pepper. Or, is it a chile, or a chili pepper.
Sorry, way to many words.

Technically speaking, all peppers that contain capsaicin are chili (or chilli or chile) peppers, which would include everything from bell peppers, paprika, cayenne, jalapeños and tabasco, to thai, habanero, scotch bonnet and poblano. These in particular, are cow horns. My son has since devoured that particular pepper, sliced and thrown atop a fried chicken cutlet 🙂

I recently made a jalapeño relish that came out amazing…added sweet red peppers, onions, cider vinegar, sugar, dill, mustard seed, coriander, etc. Talk about a hot dog or hamburger topping! Yumm!!

Thanks, Katie, I don’t hear that much, er, at all, ah, never.

I don’t know the lineage of these Tim Allen peppers (I didn’t grow them) but they taste exactly like bell peppers. Biggest dang peppers I’ve ever seen in my life.

My own peppers are small but tasty and still going strong. I expect another 4-6 weeks of good yields.

Funny, my bell peppers decided to poop out on me….they stayed small and never went yellow on me. Luckily the kid likes green peppers cuz I don’t! The ones you see here, though, are going strong. I’m going to try bringing them inside for the winter…we’ll see what happens!

I really like a bell pepper once it’s gone all the way through from green to yellow, to red to purple. OTOH, I don’t like the hybrids that are bred to simply be red or yellow. They taste exactly like green bells–something is definitely lost.

As a gag I sent one of those giant red peppers in the House Blond’s lunch. I put strange things in her lunch from time to time just for fun. After her friends stopped giggling a sixth grade boy ate the entire thing like a carrot. Knows how to make points with the ladies, I tell ya. She’s been laughing about that for two days.

I’m with ya, Mike…in fact, I’ve never even tasted one of those hybrids. My favorite color is orange…just the right sweetness for me.

BTW, my kid ironically LOVES peppers. When I send one packed in his lunch he’s a happy 11-Y-O monkey, so I guess if he was eating w/your daughter he’d have done the same thing that boy did 🙂
