Cute little 1½” red fruits look like strawberries, but their flavor is fiery hot with just a touch of sweet. Pairs well with vodka, gin and tequila drinks – ideal for garnishes and infusions. 75 days from transplant. F1
Care: Plant 18-24″ apart in rows 24-30″ apart in full sun. Keep soil uniformly moist (but not waterlogged) for best production.
Farmers Market Vodka Garden:
Over the centuries, vodka has been distilled from potatoes, grains and fruit – anything the farmer had left over at the end of harvest. And because vodka is a neutral spirit, it can be infused with all the flavors of the farmers market. Try a lighter, fresher version of the classic Bloody Mary by simply smashing fresh tomatoes in the shaker and straining. Or infuse vodka with peppers and herbs to preserve the flavor of the harvest.
The Pitchfork: Muddle 1.5 ounces vodka, Fireball pepper, strawberry, blood orange and a dash of agave nectar. Shake and strain. Serve over ice, top with ginger beer.
