Peppers love hot weather. I have more jalapeno peppers than I know what to do with. I have offered some to my neighbor but he says that they also have more than they need. I am thinking of canning some or having a party that features jalapeno poppers.
Last summer I collected yellow sweet pepper seeds from the peppers I grew when I discovered that a pack of just yellow sweet peppers has hard to find at local stores. You can order them online but this seems rather expensive when you consider the shipping cost for just a few packs of seeds and the fact that I don't need a lot of seeds.
I ended up growing my yellow pepper from a multicolored pepper seed pack. Most were purple peppers, which I wasn't thrilled with. The purple peppers look pretty but turn green when you cook them and they end up tasting like green peppers. I did ended up with one yellow pepper plant. I saved the seeds from those peppers for this year's plants.
I know that seed companies will cringe if they read this blog, but this worked out well. This summer I have several yellow pepper plants that have also been producing a lot of peppers.
I am now collecting seeds for next year's harvest. I will probably collect other vegetable seeds to ensure that I have the specific plants I want. As long as the plant isn't a hybrid this seems to work.
