Details

The standard bell pepper for many decades, this 1928 introduction is still the largest open-pollinated, heirloom bell you can grow, and is a big improvement over the earlier bells. A perfect stuffing pepper that consistently produces blocky, thick-walled, tender and flavorful peppers. Excellent for slicing into rings for dips and salad toppings, and chopping into crisp bite-sized nibbles. Peppers are a glossy deep-green turning red at full maturity, and reach 4-4½” long x 3-4" in diameter.
