Our top picks for veggies and fruits to grow at home, from tomatoes to greens
We grew mildly spicy ‘Mariachi’ peppers in large pots in Sunset’s outdoor kitchen, and quickly deemed them keepers on our “grow ‘em every summer” list.
Their fruits are elegant: long, and tapered, often in shades of yellow, red, and orange on the same plant. Flavor is mildly hot and spicy. Sun; all zones.
In regions with cool or short seasons, extend growing time by using floating row covers and clear plastic mulches.
