You have to wait a long, long, time, almost until the very last minute of the growing season where I live, to get peppers that aren’t just green. I started these pepper plants from seed back in March. Seven months of watering and waiting…
But it was totally worth it.
Take a look at this pepper plant bursting with small “snack” size peppers:
And some large orange bell peppers:
The light yellow, almost white peppers below are called creme brulee, and if you let them sit on the plant long enough, they turn a lovely creamy red color:
So I had a little fun with some of the peppers after I picked them, a little “photo shoot”:
Eventually I did cut them up for freezing:
This will make me smile every time I open the freezer this winter:
Are you patient enough to wait for peppers to turn colors, or do you just pick them green?
