Ratings & Reviews
Sweet and meaty 4 lobed peppers, consistent 4 inches tall weighing between 5 - 8 ounces each. No less than 6 peppers per plant, our favorite orange variety.
Keeps the peppers coming and adds beautiful color!

Purchased and grew these in my 2021 garden. These plants grew extremely well in Greensboro area NC! And the pepper production was amazing. Lots and lots of peppers for each plant. Took a little bit to transition all the way to the orange color, so I ended up harvesting quite a few when they were green. But the flavor was very good as well. Definitely more flavorful when it was the full orange color, but flavor was still delicious when green. I had these in full sun, and they never offered to wilt or burn even in our hot North Carolina summers. I definitely recommend these. All of the seeds that I planted germinated and the plants grew considerably well. Flavor is beautifully sweet and more intense when orange. Not a hint of “hot“.
