Peppers - Sweet

Peppers are great to have in the summer garden.  They are usually polite and pretty plants, and a freshly harvested, crunchy, sweet pepper is just SO enticing.  They like warmth and sun, we believe even more so than tomatoes, so be patient.  They will grow slowly or not at all until they find conditions to their liking.  Even while they are in our greenhouse, they poke along, teasing and frustrating us.  Then, they wake up and kick into gear.

Huge heirloom Italian sweet pepper, with long, curved fruits that do look like a bull’s horn. May be the longest stuffing pepper at 6-10” long and up to 2” diameter. Red when ripe. Excellent flavor. Prized for salads, grilling or sauteing. Higher yielding than bell types, up to 20 fruits per plant.

This heirloom pepper is DELICIOUS!  Sweet, crisp, and thin walled, it is wonderful raw off the vine, but also a great frying pepper.  Productive plants, they produce glossy red 6 -10" long peppers.  Originated in Italy, introduced to the U.S. in 1887.

A compact, bushy plant that produces thick, elongated yellow bell type peppers. An early producer too!

A very good producer of crisp, sweet, golden orange, thick fleshed pumpkin shaped peppers. Great raw, or as a small stuffing pepper. Produces lots of fruit over a long season. A particularly good choice if you have trouble growing bells.

Cute, slightly wrinkled traditional Japanese variety that is a chef's standard for tempura.  The 3-4" peppers are a joy to eat fresh, and the plant is a heavy producer.

This lovely Italian variety looks like, hey a tomato!  But, it's all sweet pepper: meaty, flavorful, and equally good sliced into rings for a raw veggie platter, or stuffed.  Can be eaten green, turns red at maturity while maintaining a green interior.
