    An interesting way how they plant the vines on brick-in town. for sure will check it out there. For that price though one would assume it will be at first only at the AV under the Lotte Center at the end of New Arbat. Anything that is new,expotic or expensive is there first.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    I can't find the link to the pictures you described above, but if indeed they plant here in the city, then that pepper would be too polluted to eat.

    Plus, I can't think of a reason why it should be grown here - it would prob be cheaper to import it.


    I've told this story many times already, but some years back, the protestant church tried to start a greenhouse @st andrews and had to quit growing above ground leafy type veggies cuz of too much pollution. Below ground root stuff was fine, but that was the end of that phase of the project.

    This seems to be the only pic I can find. It looks like a regular field in a jungle somewhere?


    I'm interested cuz I myself want to grow pepper, for my own personal use. Fresh stuff really is the best!

    here are 3 links (yahoo IS my friend and so is the duck duck search engine

    why they grow it on brick towers and not the -traditional wooden poles? pepper is a creeper plant. apparently, to get a good harvest they also need space around the pole. and so they plant only ONE creeper. The brick towers are bigger and they can have up to six vines on one tower.

    thanks, thats neat.

    i bet its just that farm. and they use the bricks because it cuts down on labor costs - ie; not having to replace rotten wood once every couple of seasons and also because pepper should be a creeper vine. i bet it also doesn't die off cuz of the cold, so it plays nicely in the spot its planted.
