  • The Essential Guide to Growing Peppers
  • The Essential Guide to Growing Garlic
  • The Essential Guide to Growing Onions

Where to Find Carmen Peppers

As Megan and I discussed, we are both huge fans of Carmen Peppers…. and Jimmy Nardello, Red Marconi, Corno di Toro Rossa and all other Sweet Italian Frying Peppers!

Im fact, we both agree that Frying peppers are way sweeter with a taste more worth waiting for than traditional Bell peppers. They are the just the epitome of summer.

The tricky part, is where to find these varieties as seedlings in the springtime. Liz and I actually go over where and how to source the best seedling varieties each spring on Episode 2: How to Source Healthy plants for a Healthy Garden

The quick advice if your looking for heirloom varieties like Carmen, is to find a CSA farm by searching your zip code at CSA Farms often start way more field plants than they need – with the intention of selling the transplants to home gardeners.

They are often the best suppliers of properly-cared-for seedlings!
