Growing peppers in the Philippines – one of the easiest things to grow

grow Red peppersThe Peppers look a bit dusty from the rain but as you can see now ripe and ready for the picking if your wondering the size of the peppers they are over 3” long and about 1 1/2 – 2” wide. The beauty of these things though is they are the easiest thing to grow in the Philippines as we have recently discovered from fiesta. We had people over to do the cooking and when they removed the seeds they threw them into some grass there is now around 15 pepper plants ready to be transplanted into pots without even trying. Doesn’t sound much until you consider I love hot food and a pepper of this size is around P7 each. Growing several plants in several locations means we can have them as we want.
