Greetings:

One of the items we have planned for every member’s share this week is a mildly warm tasting pepper by the name of Joe E. Parker. Rarely do vegetable varieties have a person’s name associated with it, but this one does. We have had good success planting it in past years seeing it as being a reliable performer. This year it has come thru again although later in the season.

It is described in the seed catalog as a ‘Southwest Favorite’ for grilling and roasting with mild heat and a rich satisfying Chile flavor. If I didn’t have the good experience I’ve had planting it in the past, I would probably try planting it based almost on that description alone. I don’t normally go out of my way for peppers with a ‘Chile Flavor’, as I personally prefer sweet bell type peppers. However, if vegetable seed breeders were to develop a Watermelon tasting pepper sometime in the future, you know that would definitely get my attention.

Be well,

Fred & Karen
