We grow a few different types of sweet peppers on the farm. We grow green bell peppers, red bell pepper, and Sweet Red Italia Peppers. The Italia peppers are a farm favorite; they’re very sweet and are great fresh or cooked. They are thinner than a bell pepper and come to a point at the end.
Storage and Handling:
Store peppers in your refrigerator crisper drawer in a loosely closed plastic bag for up to a week or more. Be careful of excess moisture in the bag, this may cause the peppers to rot.
All peppers, red and green, are great chopped fresh into salads, sautéed, roasted, grilled and stuffed. They can be added to almost any dish.
