I bought some of the peppers last week from Claire, and they are TOO HOT TO EAT ! My family had a good time slicing off the teensiest piece and tasting them. Claire raises Ghost Peppers, Seranno Chil Peppers, Habaneros and more at her farm on South Taft Hill Road.
She also tells me that her winter squashes are ripening, and she expects to bring spaghetti, blue hubbard and delicata to market .
