Fish Peppers to Spice Up Your Garden

Next to the tomato, peppers are probably my favorite vegetable to grow and eat. Sweet Bell and Banana peppers are always a staple in our home garden. We also usually grow a few jalapeños and/or cayennes. This year I found a unique hot pepper in the seed catalog that I thought I would try. Fish peppers are a variegated leaf pepper with a cayenne like heat taste. They have an interesting history of how they came to be found in current seed catalogs. Fish peppers are a African-American heirloom dating back to before 1870.
