Peter Piper didn't pick any pecks of pickled peppers because pickled peppers aren't pickled when they are picked. So Peter Piper picked zero pecks of pickled peppers.

However assuming that he was able to pick at least one peck of pickled peppers (it never said he got them from a garden) it would be determined by the formula: (p)(t) where p is the number of pecks of pickled peppers pickable in a period of time (an hour) and t is the time that he spent picking the perfect pickled peppers that peter piper picked. let us, for arguments sake, assume that he picks 2 pecks of pickled peppers in an hour. let us also assume that he spent 5 hours picking his perfect pickled peppers. therefore by these calculations, he pick 10 pecks of pickled peppers but it could vary depending on the skill of peter piper at picking pickled peppers. and so peter piper picked at least 10 pecks of pickled peppers.

Peter, IAW the rhyme. Picked a peck. "A" peck. So he did pick pickled peppers and as you pointed out, not straight from the plant. So he picked 8 quarts . Time has absolutely no place in this rhyme. It could have been seconds hours days months years. How ever it is unknown how big the pickled peppers were so as to the number of peppers it remains forever, How many?!

If peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers how many pickled peppers did peter piper pick?

== Peter Piper picked "a" peck of pickled peppers, therefore Peter Piper picked one peck of pickled peppers. == Peter Piper did not pick any pickled peppers. You have to pick the peppers, then pickle them. == Peter Piper purchased a peck of pickeled peppers in bulk. He went to the grocers where they are availiable, and picked out a peck and went through the checkout lane with his purchase. A peck is a quarter of a bushel (there are 4 pecks in a bushel), so this is not unrealistic. The issue might be that it would take several containers to pack them in. It's a bit on the odd side, though, because a peck is measure of volume, and you would usually expect pickeld peppers to sell by weight in the same manner as pickles. But it is still very doable for Mr. Piper to pick a peck of pickled peppers. He might pick them by the peck (volume) and then pay for them by weight.
