I knew there were many varieties of peppers but didn't have a clue which ones would do well. Thanks for a fun and informative article.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed the article. That pickle recipe is one reason my pepper patch is so big!

Dutchlady, you may well have good luck with bell peppers in FL, so try some of those too... For me, these non-bells are just more reliable performers. :-)

Jill thank you so much for making me feel less like a loser! My Bells give me one or two small crops and then die a slow and agonizing death! Now I can hold my head up once again and say "It happens to the best of us." Thanks for all the other suggestions, I will definately be trying them, and I also love that recipe...keep a jar in the fridge at all times.

Shari, if you want seeds, feel free to Dmail me... I know I said "US only please" on the other thread for simplicity, but as long as it's not illegal to send you seeds, it should be pretty straightforward... you're at an APO address, right? That means that mailing shouldn't be an issue. :-)

I just ran your zip through a site that claimed it would tell me of any APO mailing restrictions... it said "fruits, plants, live animals prohibited" -- so presumably seeds are OK. If you want some, just post on the other thread, please. (As far as I'm concerned, it's a US address since your APO is in CA.)

in researching pepper diseases for a neighbor I came across this thread. My Mother insisted that every pepper plant needed a partner. So always put two plants in the same hole. Provided your soil is well balanced. you will have peppers in abundance. I too love Gypsy and here in the east I start my seeds outside, from last years crop. They are now starting to bloom and We'll have many meals of stuffed peppers in Sept. and Oct. We also grow banana peppers and have grown Red Bell and Green Bell. 2 together bumper crop.

I've grown 2 together, but I'm not sure I've seen much difference in doing so... but if it works, it works! Sounds like you've got a great pepper patch! :-)

Can anyone tell me where to get seeds for yellow and orange bell peppers? They are my parents' favorite and a friend told me seeds from the ones in the store likely won't grow...

Most of the major seed companies have seeds for hybrid colored bell peppers, and you can probably find something on the seed rack at your local nursery or big box store. If you're looking for a wider variety, I think "Totally Tomatoes" (which also sells pepper seeds) has had a good selection in the past, as have places like HPS and Hazzard's Seeds (which sell larger packs, good for splitting but more than the average home gardener needs).
