White, Purple and Light Green Pepper Pictures – Bianca, Islander and Cubanelle

This one is Bianca. There are a total of 3 fruits on the plant right now. Big, beautiful and lovely creamy white color. I fell in love with the white peppers when I grew my Albino Bullnose.

Cubanelle. Another one of my favorites, I grow it every year. Since I don’t like hot peppers, I use these for stuffing as in Chile Rellenos. They turn a pretty fiery orange.islander-in-purple

Who doesn’t love purple? This is called Islander, a new one for me. It starts out as a tiny green pepper and turns to purple as it matures. The next color will be red, yellow, orange, not sure what order before it reaches final maturity.

This would make a pretty and lively salsa or cut up into salads.

Pink Brandywine Tomato At Last!

pink-brandywine2-2015

This is the only time I have been able to grow a Pink Brandywine. Ever. In our area they are just too late of a season. Every year II grow them because of customer request but I generally push the Red Brandywines over the pinks since they are more reliable. While they may be the epitome of an heirloom tomato by which all heirloom tomatoes are judged by, I have yet to be able to grow them successfully.

This was a sad looking leftover, in a gallon pot, which were 2 months ahead of the game. No one wanted to take it home and there were already two tiny tomatoes growing so I put it into the garden. I’m a sucker that way, I shudder to kill something that is obviously trying so hard, even if it is just a plant.

So here we are, pictures of the elusive Pink Brandywine! One of the pictures has a tag that I make and sell. (I know, shameless plug). Today we will have BLT’s or put it into a salad and try it. I will let you know if I think they are worth all the hype.
