How many peppers did Peter Piper pick?

I need to know how many peppers Peter Piper picked.

It depends on how big the peppers were, and how many could fit within the measurement of a peck. A very rough guess would be 200 for jalapenos.

The answer is right there in the rhyme. Peter Piper picked a PECK of pickled peppers. A peck is a measure of dry volume that is equal to about 8 United States quarts or approximately 537. 6 cubic inches. A peck can also be defined as a fourth part of a bushel.

Peter Piper picked a peck of peppers. A peck is measured more in weight than in numbers, so a peck would amount to 2 gallons of dry weight, or 10 to 14 pounds.
