Where can you find these peppers fresh?

In my garden! :-)

Seriously though, I've never seen the peppers for sale but if you want to grow a plant in a pot or in your garden I'd be glad to give you one. We grow transplants at my nursery.

they sell fried ones in those $1.29 generic packs at many mexican stores. And they usually sell 8 oz plastic tubs for about 5 bucks at many carnecerias. And they grow pretty well if you want off the vine for cooking or pickling

Used to be able to get them from my garden, until someone stole my plant! :shock:

Suzanne, I'm going to have to buy a replacement off of you, next time you bring them to market.

OMG, WTH is wrong with people? Do you need a security cam on your garden plot?

I'm kinda done with peppers starts until spring, but yesterday I found one sad, lonely Chiletepin start lost amongst the other peppers. I'll save it for you! This exchange may require lunch at Pho Thanh or somewhere central :-)

Thank you!

I know, it's ridiculous. I expect a certain amount of produce to go missing, but a whole plant is a new one on me. :shock:

At first I thought maybe it died, but last I saw, it was doing really well. And then I couldn't find a single bit of it - not a twig or rootball, but there was a divit in the dirt where it was. I keep meaning to stroll around the garden and see if it's in someone else's plot, but it's too hot.

There's also a chance they thought my garden is abandoned and thought they were "rescuing" it, since it's looking quite weedy these days. :oops:
