We have grown Bell Peppers over the years. Ours were found to be thin skinned and not very tasty. These photographs show peppers that are new to our garden. I have only been told that they are Italian Drying Peppers. We are told that when the temperatures begin to near freezing, we are to pull up the plant in its entirety and hang to dry. We look forward to trying these dried peppers.
Surprisingly and thankfully, these new vegetables were not touched by our forest friends.
It is our theory that the long grassy weeds confuses them.
