Item Details

Short-statured plants with fruit averaging 2.3" long, 1.3" wide. Small, conical, bell-like shape fruit, green ripening to red. Medium-high heat, good flavor.

This variety was donated by Dennis Derksen, who got it from his parents, who received it from a sister-in-law, Anna Derksen. The pepper is from Anna’s family; it came to the U.S. from Russia in the 1850s with German Mennonites who settled near Mountain Lake, Minnesota. Dennis’ wife Mary cans pickled green peppers which have a special place at meals during family gatherings and holidays.
