Re: Question: Can Anyone Identify This Pepper?

Hello! I posted your question on our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/FineGardeningMagazine) and we have a response! Joseph Tychonievich of Arrowhead Alpines Plant Nursery says: Most pepper you buy at the store are F1 hybrids, so they won't come true from seed. However, since the sweet trait is caused by a recessive gene, If the parent was sweet, the seedlings will be sweet as well. All peppers change color when they mature, but given she doesn't remember what color the parent was, there is no way to know what color these will be, or how long it will take.

Re: Tomatoes: Request for Reader Recommendations

I grew Juliet tomatoes for my first garden ever...and I managed to keep them alive! Ruth actually gave me the seedling, and I'm so glad she did. These little guys are great right off the vine.

Re: A First Year Gardener

Greg, thanks for the recommendation. If it's a veggie and can grow in a container, I'm going to try it. Nothing can stop me now!

Re: A First Year Gardener

Amanda,I wanted to try and grow green beans next year! Think I could manage those in a container with a pole?
