Chili Peppers Take Root on the Cape


Chili peppers aren’t native to the Cape. They do best in hot climates, and archeologists believe they were first domesticated in Ecuador. But this week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth Hay talks with a Woods Hole gardener who grows chili plants year-round. It’s the first in a three-part series on local chili peppers.


You can find a recipe for chili pepper salad dressing on Elspeth’s blog, Diary of a Locavore.
