Farmers have a passion for peppers

Washington doesn’t make it on the list of states that produce the most chili peppers — unlike California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.And Washington’s 55 acres are barely a blip in the 22,100 acres grown nationwide. The state may not make the list of top chili growers, but chilies are among the more than 300 crops grown in Washington, making us one of the most agriculturally diverse states.
