    I have been picking these wonderful, colorful bell peppers and they are truely the sweetest pepper i have ever tasted. You can just eat the whole thing. I have eaten them on everything for the past few weeks and my pepper plants are loaded. They are the most wonderful colors from yellow, orange, red and really dark red...the redder the better. I will definitely grow them again next year.

    Sounds great! Where did you buy the seed? Peppers all usually one of my best crops for some reason.

    I started all my pepper from seed with the exception of these Gypsy's , I happen to find them a few town away at a dollar store. A six pack for $1, i couldnt resist. Well and needless to say, they are a F1 hybrid so the seeds cant be saved. It always seems to happen this way...who would have know that i would have LOVED them :(

    I wonder if you could get some cuttings to root and take them in for the winter. Then you would have them again next year. Some people even lift the pepper plants from the ground to over winter inside.

    Hank, all the herbs I have to trade is dill seed. The only garden I've managed to do the past 2 or 3 yrs has been in containers and rather limited. I've been renting and couldn't have a full garden. Is your seed OP or F1?

    They are probably a hybrid. Will check tomorrow as they are in the barn. A friend gave me a whole bunch of them. If you want to trade the dill seeds would be great; that is my absolute favorite herb! Our email is hsnrs@vtc.net. Can't get the private message thing to work.
