Hot peppers are easy to grow and produce prolific amounts of delicious and medicinal fruits.  For those reasons, our kitchen garden is never without them.  But we also love them because they are a lot of bang for your buck, space-wise, generally yielding tons of fruits over a longer period of time than a bell pepper plant.  In addition, many of them are very happy in a pot on the patio, thriving in the heat.  Most can be easily dried, extending their use throughout the seasons.  Medicinally, cayenne is the traditional favorite--3 plants will provide a large bounty to tincture, dry, or eat as you choose!  3" peat pot.
