    Once again we are on the same page. I’ve got my late season tomato blooms up. Maybe we’ll be having tomatoes in November! You can stuff peppers for thanksgiving!

    Gorgeous! I’m hoping I’ll get some late-season tomatoes!

    The flowers are pretty enough to be reason to grow peppers!

    Can you eat the flowers? If so, what do they taste like? Can you eat all the flowers of an edile veg/fruit?

    Do you think it will turn into a pepper?
    Or is it too cold?

    Michelle, I love the optimism! I share it…but realism is drawing me back. Maybe that’s just becuase it’s cold and rainy today.

    Sara, thank you! I was glad to see it, although I wish it had shown up earlier in the season…

    Aiyana, pepper flowers might be my favorite veggie flowers in the garden. They’re just lovely.

    TopVeg, thanks so much!

    Moe, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.

    Nikkipolani, I totally agree. I had decided to yank the pepper plant, but just because of this flower, I’m glad I didn’t.

    Cole, I haven’t tried tasting one of these…I’m sure they wouldn’t kill me, but I don’t know if they’d be tasty or not?

    Chigiy, I’m guessing it’s too cold. There are no frosts in the 10-day forecast right now, but the night temps are down in the 50s and high 40s…I doubt that’s warm enough for pepper production.
