Default Peter Peppers

The photos are from an e-mail from a brother who is whacked... nice but off the wall. He gets a charge out of getting a rise out of me whether it's a video that makes my chair flip or outrageous veggie photos or starting political discussions that make my blood pressure go through the ceiling. These photos take the cake. They're called Peter Peppers and I want to try growing some so I can give them to him wrapped up in a nice box with a big red bow for his 60th birthday... like as in he would have to open them up in front of all his friends. He'd do a double take and try to hide them to avoid offending someone but it would be too late... they would all be wondering what he got that he's trying to hide and they'll want to know... Ha ha ha... joke will be on him. He's Mr funnyman and prankster around family but he's milk toast in public and large groups.

More I found on Peter Peppers about the taste, http://www.backwoodshome.com/articles/yeager62.htmlWhen you can get past the guffaws, titters, and remarks from visitors viewing your Peter Pepper patch, you can explain that the Peter Pepper is one of the best hot peppers to have around. It is not so hot that it is like consuming fire and it is not so mild that you wish it had more zip. It is just right to add flavor to anything in which you’d ordinarily use some hot pepper. Finely chop one of these peppers in a pot of beans, peas, gumbo, chili, etc., and watch the diners liven up.” And, http://www.peterpeppers.com/Peter_Peppers/peter_peppers.htmIt is a curious little pepper, the Peter Pepper. Some say it's sexy. Some say it's hot. Others say it is delicious. No matter who you are, you will agree it is an unusual Cajun pepper. One that makes every cooking and gift giving occasion an interesting experience.”

I've grown those before, they are fun to show off ! I've also had tomatoes with a similar appearance - perhaps staff could arrange for a 'Veggie Porn' thread next growing season????

That's too funny! I love this quote from one of those links "Dad bought the seeds from a catalog and grew these perverted peppers at home. We're so proud of him."

I may have to grow some and deliver Dad a plant, just telling him it's supposed to be a great tasting hot pepper. I'd have to wait a couple of months to get that phone call from Mom when the full-grown peppers show their shape . . . . but it would be worth it.

Fun Police! I was going to start a veggie porn thread and you took the air out of my bubble. It can wait till next spring. I once had a really good mushroom porn photo. I got a rise out of a few people sending out the photo. I do want to buy some of these Peter Peppers before his birthday. No mail order sources for these peppers from out west? I'll miss his birthday this year if I have to grow them from seed... and then there's always the risk I could kill them... I don't have the best track record with veggies.

dragonfly01 Peter Peppers

Hanh mitakuyapi. I can just see these at the Farmer's Market in stolid North Dakota! Hoo-haaaa! Nothin' like shaking up the complacent.. My cannibal pumpkin did it last year.. this would do it next year. Pity I can't grow peppers - they're one of the few things that just don't grow fruits for me; or I'd do it just to get the reaction. I'd probably get a TV crew at my stand. Duwahleh! I've got to find a way to grow these peppers! Just 1 season would be enough!

If you have too little rain for peppers, plant in a trench -- that works for me. Aged cow manure never hurts, either.

My husband says I can grow these next year, but I have to be the one to cut them up.

He'll eat it if you call it a pepper, but he's not ABOUT to touch one.

I think it may be the cutting them up more than the touching...
