Episode 106 Peppers

Today I talk all about peppers.  I don’t grow peppers as often as I probably should.  Its a shame really.  There are so many varieties out there and so many neat tastes.  Join me today as I discuss:

Hot!

 

Not so much...

*The origin of peppers.

 

*Why they were important as a food discovery.  It should be apparent since almost all pepper fruit derived dishes  came about from the pepper plants that Columbus found.

*Scoville units.

*Why peppers evolved to be hot. What parts are hot specifically.  Why bell peppers are not hot.

*Growing peppers from seed.  Some of the challenges.
