Purple Peppers, Happy Plants, Hot Fruits

I like purple peppers, really I like all peppers. Used some fresh bell peppers in the Mexican meatloaf last night. Yummy. Back to purple peppers though, I like growing them. Have successfully kept a Purple Cayenne pepper in a 5 gallon bucket for over a year now and it’s still producing. Last fall I picked it’s biggest crop and made a full jar of purple cayenne vinegar sauce. This year I’ll do the same here soon before the first frost and then move the plant back into the greenhouse for the winter. It will produce over the winter but not as heavily as late summer. I top dress the bucket twice a year with compost from the pile. Take a look at the pepper plant, peppers, bloom and the bucket.

Mini purple peppers, named Purple Flash are cute but not very big plants and not very big producers in spite of the local honey bees we see in the yard daily. Tiny purple peppers, not really big enough to do anything with from a single plant.

Hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Update to original post: found a black hungarian hot pepper plant in backyard. Transplanted to a 2 gallon container about 2 weeks after Sept 24th.  Picked 6 peppers off on November 1st 2015.  Plant will go into greenhouse for the winter.
