KKUP Special Shows

Thursday July 22nd – 10:00am to Noon – Old Time Farm & Garden Show

Well, been going on two years, but here we go again talking Peppers, Chiles, Aji, Paprika and Capsicum with background on origin, name game, heat etc. Free form discussions of varieties from sweet (emphasis on Bell alternatives that are easier to grow) to hot and everything in between. How to start seeds, plant those plants, harvesting (green or color?), seed saving and overwintering (yes, they are perennials). We also cover various ways to eat these wonderful veggies and even approaches to mitigate the heat if you get too much “pico de gallo in the eye-o”. Should be a hot two hours!
