Did You Know – Green Pepper

Did you know that you can cut a green pepper and leave the seeds attached to the stem?

It is rare that I cut up a green pepper because I dislike the way they taste.

So todays picture below, is compliments of my husband as he loves green pepper.

Not one seed came loose from the stem, however, he has cut a lot of green peppers in his lifetime.

He makes a square out of it by slicing four sides from the pepper.

He said when he is done he also cuts the bottom off and uses it too.

So give it a try and see if you think my husbands way is easier and less messy.



    • Yes you can grow more pepper plants from the seeds, however, the pepper needs to be fully ripe. It needs to be just past the point you would eat it and the skin is wrinkled. Depending on if you are drying the seeds or planting them right away, there is a process to follow so I would suggest looking it up on Google. We were given heirloom tomato seeds quite a few years back. That process was so strange, the seeds went between wet paper towels and you placed them on top of the refrigerator.

  1. I will give this a try! I “keep” the seeds and toss them to the menagerie in the pen. Someone always eats up the seeds but it is a pain so I will try your husband’s method. Do you eat red sweet peppers? I have a friend who also doesn’t like green peppers. I grew up with them so they are like second nature to me.


    • He wants to take up photography when he retires. We took the grandkids and my daughter to the zoo last Sunday and he took his new Nikon. The grandkids took more picture than he did so I don’t know.🤣


  2. That’s so interesting! We have two green peppers in our fridge – I’m definitely going to try this way of cutting. Can’t believe you don’t like green peppers … I don’t know why, but I thought you like everything 😅.
