Best We've Ever Eaten!


This is the best sweet pepper my family has ever eaten. We prefer these to anything else for recipes requiring bell peppers. The flavor is absolutely outstanding in our fajitas, on pizza, in gumbo, and in spaghetti sauce.

Excellent red roasting pepper!


I tried a similar pepper this year and I am switching back to these! Great taste, good producer, beautiful red color!

One of my favorites


This is a wonderful pepper! It is great for folks living places with short seasons because you can get a bundle of peppers ripened weeks before frost without cover. Very sweet, fleshy and satisfying!
