Growing local

I am in the groove.
Finally harvesting what I truly yearn for.
The peppers are rare Italian heirloom varieties that taste fab.
I'm finally cracking the sweet pepper code.

Today's harvest from the one Dragon Roll/Shishito pepper bush. Note the wrinkled surface. Maybe one out of every ten peppers is spicy.

The peppers  I'm growing  are Perennial Capsicum, Cubanelle, Jimmy Nardello, and Peperone di Senise. I also have Dragon Roll Peppers growing --which can be bought as a seedling from Bunnings.

Dragon Roll is easy grow. I do recommend it if you want to flavour up your capsaicum addiction.

The Perennials -- although all peppers are 'perennial' -- is the least delicious.

The tastiest so far is definitely Peperone di Senise. Unfortunately, the seeds are very rare in Australia., and I only got one plant to grow.

So there rests a seed saving task.

Fabulous Dave, They look beautiful. These are the ones I brought to your place when we did the Fermented Pepper Relish and I also Roast & store them in Oilve Oil & Vinegar I put a few herbs into. Don't know if these are the seeds you kept from the ones I brought with mew.
