Welcome to the world of peppers! Hot, sweet or spicy -- we have special varieties for you to grow.
When a friend of mine bought his first house he exclaimed, Now I can grow peppers!
Even if peppers aren’t your primary reason for having a garden, be sure to add some in a sunny spot.
In our latest video, Tricia teaches you about Growing Peppers and shows you how she plants and nurtures them in her raised beds.
We have so many Peaceful Valley organic pepper seed packs that your big question is really which peppers to grow next summer?
Three of our gift-worthy seed tin collections have peppers as part of their specially chosen ten-packs of seeds.
If you’ve been growing peppers for a while you know your must-haves, but we add new peppers every year, so take a peek at our varieties to see which would tickle your taste buds and liven up your garden.
Peppers look so good you can show them off in your front yard and inspire your neighbors to do some edible landscaping.
To really catch the attention of the dog-walkers who pass by, try Black Hungarian and Sweet Pickle peppers that grow up, instead of hanging down. Since the peppers change colors as they mature you get a rainbow effect on just one plant.
Dried Poblanos are Anchos so we call the seeds Ancho Poblanos.
For genuine paprika, grow your own Paprik, then dry the peppers and grind them into a powder with complex flavors.
Love to use pepper flakes in cooking? Those flakes are dried and sliced pieces of cayenne peppers—we have red Cayenne, or you can go multi-colored with red, purple, green, and orange in the Cayenne Mix.
Crunchy, juicy bell peppers are a hit with everyone from kids on up.
Sweet Purple Beauty bell peppers are smaller than their cousins—known as “salad bells” they’re the cherry tomatoes of the bell pepper group.
Don’t want to choose? Grow the Rainbow Bell Mix with six colors!
Nardellos don’t look like bell peppers (they have a long, thin shape) but their thinner flesh and slightly stronger flavor make them a pepper to add to your garden.
Enjoy your pepper growing adventures and please leave us a comment about your favorites!

Well this kind of depends on how spicy you want your chili. If you want some heat, plant some cayenne, jalepeno peppers or habanero. Some medium hot peppers that are really good are the New Mexico Joe Parker. Now you may want to balance your chili with some bell peppers such as the sweet cal wonder, a green bell pepper. The ancho poblano peppers also have a really nice flavor but is not too spicy. Enjoy.
