Mike those 'cocktail caps' are smaller than the ones I was thinking of; are they sweet but slightly hot?

High there Mary.They are just small capsicums about 9 to a 250g strawberry punnit.They are different from the larger hot chili types ones.They might be sweeter and nuttier than regular capsicums but not hot.

Thanks, Mike. Then I think I should look for a large mild chilli rather than a small capsicum. Perhaps I should try and cross a chilli with a capsicum?

On second thought; I guess one could use a spicy filling with the caps. Or a spicy sauce.

Hadn't seen those little capsicums before. Cute. Yes they would be great roasted with a spicy mince inside.

They are tiny!? wow. You might like the Hungarian "Alma Paprika" to try (got my seeds from diggers) They are smallish and squat and have a lovely thick flesh with that intense flavour that a paprika capsicum gets.. :)

Very nice - I am growing some now to dehydrate and make my own paprika with (as the homemade stuff is so good!)

Hi Xiem; I like them roasted too but I also like to stuff them (halves) with raw fillings and panfry them, stuffed side down. The heat from the filling cooks the caps a bit but not too much so you still get the crunch.

Do you have a dehydrator, Amanda? Are they a good investment?

Mike I will try growing them as the weather warms.

Yes, Mike. Lucy sent seeds but I have not planted them yet. It's freezing here and a lot of my seedlings didn't make it through the coldest night. Lucky I have more seeds (more seeds than I know what to do with) :) I'll look out for a second hand dehydrator.

Found one online at Gumtree - a Ezi snack maker 500 for $100 "used once". Not sure if that's a good one.

Hi Mike , yes you are of course right, bear in mind this market is probably one of the top fruit and veg markets in Brissie ,so of course its reflected in the price (placed near to the cafe set darlings)whos disposable income knows no bounds.

Thanks Lucy and David, I'm writing in my friend's 240 sq.ft. studio (a typical writer's garret - think La Boheme) and sustained by fresh fruit bought at the local market (Tues & Thurs). They also sell cheese made by the Amish people, pickles, breads and pastries. No cooking in this 94コF heat!

Hi Mike, the camera lies; they're actually average to small apples末well the ones at the market were, anyway. I like buying from the markets here末the peaches still have the fuzz on them; something I'd not seen in Sydney for the longest time. Sorry for the American one cent coin; it's about the size of our five cents piece.

I'm trapped indoors by the thunder storm. Fortunately I'd stocked up at the markets so won't need to eat my friend's succulents :) I also have Key Lime Cheese Cake and Chocolate Brownies from Magnolia Bakery. :)

Not the famous key lime pie? Be careful Mary there is fuzz everywhere and even the peaches are covered.It is true your camera was talking with a forked lens.Rusty's today was extremely ordinary so you would have better access to tropical fruit there.Take care.

Here are some pics from my local markets in Brooklyn NY. There are some unusual stuff like garlic scrapes and purslane. The tropical stuff here are mostly imported, Mike, from south of the border like Mexico but the green markets only sell local produce so at the moment it's berries and stone fruits and apples.

Hi John Mc, the purslane is slimy and like okra it's not to my taste.

I bought a bag of small potatoes today 'cause they looked cute; now I'm too scared to eat them because maybe they're seed potatoes for growing? They only cost a couple of dollars. :)

Right, sg - I forgot that at the beginning and thought everything really cheap! The markets prices are higher than you can get at the supermarket. Those plums were only so so but the peaches (all varieties) are superb.

Great pics MaryT - how interesting! Those little spuds are a "gourmet selection" (so they say these days..lol) Pop them on the window ledge and bake them in the heat maybe...? hehe..

I'd pig out on those berries - they look great!
Have fun MaryT - thanks for posting the pics too - I enjoyed looking at them :)

Hi Amanda and David - here's a few photographs of f&v from Vancouver markets and supermarkets. I was there before and after my NYC stay. The first photo is the root vegetable of what we call Cinnamon Vine. A lot of their fruit and vegetables are imported, much more than we have. Those giant carrots are the size of our daikon, quite scary. The photo of books on how to grow marijuana was actually taken in Brooklyn New York but they are also legal to grow for own consumption in Vancouver :)

Yes, David. We used to have a vegetarian restaurant in Sydney with that same practice. Not sure if it's still there (in Newtown). It's a good idea to help people consider what they need before they buy to minimise wastage.

Beat you Julie, here in Mackay, avos are nearly $3 each! ($2.98).
Can't wait till next year, I shouldn't have to buy any from 'the shops' if my 10 avo trees perform! :-)
Bunnies had an Edranol with the wrong price tag the other day, geez I was tempted! :-) Probably gone by now.

Brendan, don't know how your Bunnings is set up, but at a new one near-by they have regular fruit section where more advanced plants are, and a really big herb/veggie section where they are selling fruit trees in mega-tube size. Heaps of Avo's - incl. many Edranol - selling for about $25 off the top of my head.( About 50cm tall).

I would never buy capsicum at $13 a kilo, even if the glass house was in Buckingham Palace. Lucy sent me some seeds which I am trying. BTW whenever I have to buy capsicum I weigh it with my hand and always go for the lighter ones; the heavy ones have massive cores and are full of seeds.

That's interesting Mary - I usually go for the heavier ones (on the rare occasion I buy at all!). I thought they had more flesh, but maybe didn't pay enough attention.

Mostly I grow my own and freeze surplus for winter cooking. A couple of capsicum plants can provide a lot of fruit for one person.

Julie, it's wax jambu; Daleys sells it. Some Chinese calls it wax apples. No doubt those at Cabramatta were imported. I was with company and took the snapshot as I walked past so didn't buy and taste. I go back at the end of next month and if they're still around I'll buy and try.

Yes, Mike I know the Taiwanese ones are very good. Too bad if we can't grow good ones.

Capsicums again - just read this today.

Peppers with three bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with four bumps are firmer and better for cooking.

I'll pay attention next time I use one.

Julie末while there are people who would pay the money, they'll ask for it. I'm going to the market to check out the prices; will report back later. $15 (let's face it, you're not getting the 2 cents change) for a kilo of capsicum is for the super rich or super stupid. Why don't we eat what's in season, best quality and cheap?

I went to Paddy's market in Sydney yesterday and didn't bring my camera, doh末must report that the prices are half or less of that in my local supermarket. Three bunches of asian vegetables for $2 or three bunches of asparagus for $4. Pineapples $2 each. Pears $1.50/kilo. Blood oranges 99 cents a kilo! I bought three red capsicums, two zucchini and two egg plants - grand total $2.20. There are mangosteens for $10 a bag; I didn't buy any because I like to choose my own. I did buy monkey banana but they were disappointing.

Julie I bought 3 and 4 bumps caps to try末YES, 3 bumps is sweeter and more fragrant and it has seeds, 4 bumps is also good eating but not as sweet and no seeds at all.

Thanks Mary - by the time my caps have grown I would probably have forgotten to check!
Capsicum and chillies very slow here - won't get any until at least January.

Yeah Mike, I can see that. But I was going to grab a couple to take home as I thought they would ripen up, given time.

No one seems to know one theory is that it was created to fill a gap in the market, it appears to have several mango lines genes into one , bit like Calypso, cross between Sensation and Kp I think.

my 2 cents, it's all to do with making money. Not everyone likes KP, so to cater for other tastes, you have other types mangos. Then there is seasons/harvest times. and lastly, you want a variety that improves on the KP, things like yield, look, taste, transportation, shelf life etc.

Pearl mangoes won't be for everybody as they are very piney. I like them very much for this reason, for me they are definitely a mango worth growing.

Hi MaryT, I think it's because of that word 'organic' that they bump up the price! I have paid $5 for a 'inorganic' Sharwill avo at Woollies, and that was about 3 years ago! :-(

You big spender, Brendan! I'll wait till they're cheaper. I don't see them selling at that price so if they want to sell them the price would have to come down. And it will.
