Peppers are a close relative of the tomato; but, peppers are more cold sensitive than tomatoes and usually require more fertilization. Peppers are generally classified as sweet or hot. Most common sweet peppers are large, blocky bell or mango varieties. Hot peppers vary in shape and size as well as the degree of hotness. A variety of colors from green to red, yellow, orange, purple, white and brown (dull purple) are available.
