Master Gardener Pepper Trial

2017 marked the second summer that the Master Gardeners conducted a Sweet Pepper Trial in the Post Rock District. A total of 69 pounds of peppers were harvested and donated to senior centers, family, and friends. The varieties that had the largest yields by weight were the Sweet Banana, Summer Sweet, and Declaration. This was the second summer in a row for the Sweet Banana and Declaration to be top producers for the Master Gardeners. The peppers with the smallest yields were Alliance and Camelot.
