I was surprised to find purple bell peppers that have already turned this season.
I was worried that we may only have one purple pepper plant out of the 50+ plants I started from seeds. I know of 2 plants, so far. Hopefully, they’ll be more.
An interesting point about the purple bell peppers is that they grow a yellowish pepper that turns purple. Most of the peppers I’ve ever grown have started out green and then turned another color.
I think it’s pretty neat what one learns about familiar veggies when you grow other colors/varieties of the same kind. I’m looking forward to harvesting other colors of bell peppers. I’ll put them in a basket and take some photos (and then eat some and freeze some.)
I hope you’re having success & enjoyment with
your Summertime gardening &/or hobby projects.
Another interesting thing about the purple pepper is that’s it’s cream color on the inside.
