The July Plant of the Month is the Pepper

The UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County Office is pleased to announce that the July “Plant of the Month” is the pepper.

Peppers are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which protect against the development of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes while providing a combination of tangy taste and crunchy texture. In addition, peppers are an excellent snack since they provide very few calories because they are mostly water.
  
July is a good time to grow peppers in North Central Florida. Check the Plant of the Month website for information on planting, harvesting, recipes, and more. Listen to the Extension Cord Podcast to get further insights on the Plant of the Month.

The Plant of the Month program is a collaborative effort between Alachua County Board of County Commissioners, UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County, Alachua County Master Gardener Volunteers, Alachua County Public Library, and Working Food. 

For more information, contact the UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County at 352-955-2402. Visit the Extension Office website for additional programs offered by the Extension Office.
