From The New World To The Global Table

Whether sweet and mild or fiery hot, no matter where they exist in the world today, peppers can trace their origin to the New World and you can thank Columbus' voyages for making them a global phenomena. They require a warm climate and grow at a leisurely pace. In this part of the country that means that if you don't want to wait all summer for them to mature, you start them indoors when there is still snow on the ground outside. I started these in March, but maybe next year I'll get them going in February.
