  •  Same price as usual as far as I can tell (1+ / 0-)

    $3.99/lb at Publix yesterday, which I think is what they usually are and have been so long as I can remember...at any rate, bell peppers can be grown just about anywhere, as I understand it. Tart Cherries are another matter...very fussy, most of them come from Michigan, I think some from upstate NY...I love tart cherries, losing them is truly tragic...

    •  We just put in a Montmorency for tart cherries (0+ / 0-)

      because you can't find them here in SE PA. It'll be a few years before fruit, so hopefully this freaky non-winter won't hurt.

    •  Don't pay that (0+ / 0-)

      I've been getting them all winter under a dollar. The red yellow and orange peppers are higher and I don't buy until they go to $1.29/lb.

      Support your local fruit market. I am in Chicago which generally has higher prices on produce than Florida.

      •  I don't usually buy them (0+ / 0-)

        at the supermarket, but I see them there and that's usually the price. Actually, that's why I don't usually buy them.
