I have two of these - one of them was orange and the other was green. But now they are both green! What the heck happened

Navigated the “hot pepper guy” wilds and I ordered these cuties. They are called patio fire and ice. They are a stubby, bushy pepper with a mild heat. I have discovered I like spice. A lot!


Update: Oops! They are ornamental. I’m out of $2 for seeds, it is fine. I’ll love ‘em anyway.

Update 2: There are some in the pepper community who eat them off of their porch anyway. They are sweet and floral.

I’ll report back once I get some peppers.

Those non spicy are great for making an infused edible fermented oilish sauce

It gives food a great scent. I’ll try to take a picture of one example tomorrow!

Please do! I was thinking about pickling some of them as well. They are so mild they may lend themselves to it.

I have a snack pepper that’s already bearing fruit. I’ll try to get a nice shot of it later!

@exodus do you have a guava tree too? then you could make your own POG juice!!

I went a little plant crazy and bought a whole palm tree. (In transit from Miami.)

My last post until I see progress on the peppers. I want to make sure everyone gets their time in the sun!

I made a little video wherein I fawn over my little palm tree for 2 minutes.
