Details

The perfect pickling pepper, Sweet Pickle looks as good as it tastes with colorful "Christmas tree light" fruits of yellow, orange, red, and even purple! These peppers are about 2 inches long, tapering to a blunt end. Thick-walled and very sweet, they hold up beautifully on the plant, and keep their color, shape, and texture nicely when pickled. Also excellent for salads, garnishes and freezing. Suitable for containers, pots, patios, and small gardens.

Michigan Seeds grown on our farm Renegade Acres in Howell, MI!
