Peppers - Hot
Though available year round, peppers are primarily warm season vegetables that flourish during the summer months. The many varieties of peppers can be divided into two basic groups-sweet peppers and chili peppers. The degree of heat, or lack of, is determined by the concentration of capsaicin found in the individual varieties. Local farms offer several types of peppers, both sweet and hot, during the summer months that range in size and shape and varying degrees of heat.
