Pepp’er’dew peppers

Peppadew is a trademarked pepper. These peppers, shiftily named pepperdew peppers, similar apparently in every way except trademark are obtainable from all sorts of sellers. Of course you’ve still got to find a sweet brine recipe to boil them up in.

Only two of my pepperdew pepper seeds actually germinated. Not sure this is because of my hamfisted way of growing them, sowing them too late or because of the way they may have been smuggled off a plantation.

I have dedicated my special automatic water and feed box obtained at the centre of alternative technology on last years scout camp to get the ball rolling and make them less sad and spindly. It’s been working!

I’m hoping they’ve bred fairly true so I can have more next year!
