Always wanted a farm but am happy with my suburban back yard in southern NJ. I consider myself a novice even though I've gardened for over 20 years.

Ok didn't realize I could do that. They are supposed to be red do I let them stay on the plant until they turn?

When they are red they are hot hot for this type so if ya want hot hot then wait but some can be used now.. Larger ones.. Google preserving peppers. You can pickle them,dry them etc...
