First week of our peppers, we're growing both sweets and hots. We bagged them up separately. The bags that have the very-obvious-t- identify jalapenos are all hot, and the bags of peppers that are mostly if not all...the little pumpkin shaped red peppers are sweets.
First week of our Asian pears, too. Many people enjoy these like apples; crisp and hard right off the tree. Others like to let them soften on the counter for a few days. We suggest you try both!
