Gorgeous, flavorful single serving size
My husband loves bell peppers. I don’t. I thought these would be perfect one portion size and they are. He loves the flavor!
Outstanding Survival Garden Variety
When it comes to a survival garden, the heirloom mini bells (all colors) are highly productive/resistant to diseases/ rot.... We've found them to be much more productive than any of there variety (especially larger types). Regarding taste, they are tasty (unless you are fussy). You can also make them tastier (as with anything), if you know how to cook... sauteed with butter, coconut oil, Himalayan sea salt, garlic, culinary herbs. They are to die for!!!! : ) Perfect for pickling, stuffing, dehydrating for winter/survival food preservation.
My family and I highly recommend!!!
Bad batch of seeds?
I was really excited to try these seeds but after a few attempts I gave up. Most did not germinate. Of the ones that did germinate, they seem really stunted. I have some that are going on four months now and are only about 2 inches tall. I can only assume I got a bad batch of seeds! All my other seeds from this company have been great.

Won't buy again..
The pepper plants germinated fine indoors...and when planted outside, they grew to be more than 2 feet tall. But NO blooms and NO peppers. At first I thought maybe because of the soil but the mini yellow ones did just fine.
