Bizarre Bell Pepper Grown in Bryan

By  | 

You've heard of the good witch and the wicked witch, now there's the bell pepper witch. The scary veggie, with an uncanny likeness to a cartoon witch, was cultivated in the garden of Bryan resident Maria Koite.

After pepper popped up in September, Koite said she took it to work at Sam Rayburn Middle school where co-workers urged her to auction it online. Instead, she decided to put the witch to work as an ingredient in her homemade chicken gumbo.
