Peppers – hot and sweet – are the 7th most popular vegetable in the world and are beloved in cuisines from Africa to Asia to Europe to the Americas to Australia. They are eaten at all times of the day and can be enjoyed raw, roasted, stir fried, stuffed, pickled, and dried. This class will focus on everything you need to know to grow and harvest delicious peppers of your own this summer. You will learn about the history of peppers and the many varieties; how to select peppers that suit your needs; when to start seeds inside (optional); how to plant and nurture your peppers; and how to identify pests and diseases common to peppers. Instructors will be Extension Master Gardener Dona Lee and Chinquapin Community Gardener Stacey Potosnak, with subject matter expertise from Extension Master Gardener Judy Salveson. This class is intended for new and experienced gardeners.
