Our friends at Vermont Harvest of the Month bring us this month’s “Harvest of the Month.” Enjoy some of these colorful, tasty gems while they last!
Peppers are native to Central and South America and are among the first plants to be cultivated there. Pepper seeds dating back to 5,000 BC have been discovered in Mexico. After explorers from Portugal & Spain made their way to the Americas, they helped to spread peppers to other parts of the globe. Because the pepper plant is very adaptable, many different areas of the world started to cultivate them.
