Item Details

The broad-shouldered, conical, wildy sweet peppers of this prolific variety reach 3" in length and ripen to all red on sturdy 24" plants. Seed Savers Exchange member Ron Thuma has grown it faithfully since 1993, when he obtained the pepper from Johnny’s Selected Seeds for trial. 80 days from transplant. Sweet.

From Trial to Table Ron obtained seeds for this variety through a free trial sample from Johnny’s. It was then called "JSX 9010". To help evaluate the pepper’s fruity taste, Johnny’s founder, Rob Johnston, requested feedback from the trial growers asking, "I could describe the taste to you, but would rather have you try it and describe it back to me." Johnny’s later introduced the variety in 1995 as ‘Apple.’ Ron notes the variety as having a unique fruity taste that is sweet and entirely not bitter and it bears until frost and is dependable and problem-free.

Seed Savers Exchange is honored to bring this variety out of our bank and into the hands of gardeners.

Apple pepper pretty but...


I'm not sure if it's hot Georgia but the few peppers per plant we had were bland tasting,
thin skinned too. Pretty peppers though!

Delicious and easy to grow


We grew this pepper for market a half an hour east of Portland, Oregon this season, (2021). This sweet bell/conical type was one of our favorites. It has very thick fleshed walls with out a tough skin. It's very sweet.
