assortment of peppers arranged from purple to red and greens

Peppers are amazing. They can be eaten plain as a snack, in stir fry, soups, stews, chili, salads, enchiladas, omelettes, salsa, as toppings, stuffed--you name it. They can be sweet or burn-your-mouth-off spicy. They can be pickled, baked, roasted, fried, or sauteed. Just thinking about peppers makes my mouth water. Due to their versatile nature, peppers are a must-have for any home garden.

Some well known sweet peppers include bell or banana. Some well known mild and hot peppers include jalapeno, poblano, cayenne, or habanero.

Some lesser-known pepper varieties are Midnight Dreams, Chocolate Beauty, NuMex Twilight, or Jamaican Yellow. Have you heard of Big Bertha peppers? They can get huge (like 7-12 pounds per pepper!) and are perfect for stuffing or simply used as a bell pepper.

If you can’t decide on what you want to plant in your garden, maybe you want to try our new Pepper Garden Seed Assortment, which includes eight different varieties of sweet and hot peppers sure to fit your needs.

Take a minute to browse through our many pepper options. With dozens of pepper seeds to choose from here at True Leaf Market, we’re sure you’ll find one (or many) that are perfect for you.

I have grown hot cayenne peppers , bell peppers, italian tomatoes, and greens.My issue is that grasshoppers seem to eat the leaves only on my greens. Can’t figure out how to keep them from destroying all of my greens. I have not experienced any issues with my other crops. Now with my flower gardens, they are at the end of the blooming season, no more flowers.
