Ratings & Reviews
Tough and sturdy, survived heat wave, great flavor
This plant is a trooper. It survived torrential downpour and extreme heat waves without any problems (besides a broken branch from the weight of 5 peppers and a storm because I forgot to brace it). I grew two plants in a 5 gallon container and they did great. Very flavorful bell pepper. Fruits are smaller than grocery store peppers, but make grocery store bells taste like water in comparison. Very sweet when ripened to red, but also have a strong flavor when green, although not sweet. I'll be growing these again.
