What are the pros? So tasty!
What are the cons? Took a while to ripen
Even though the description says "good variety for the south", AND even though many folks online advise against growing bell peppers in containers, this variety came through and produced many delicious peppers. The taste was so much sweeter than store-bought bell peppers! Green or red, these peppers had a sharp, sweet taste. They also ripened unevenly to produce some staggeringly beautiful peppers. Some of the peppers ended up being a bit small, but I surmise that that's only because of the limited room they had to grow in the containers. Like all peppers, they took a while to set fruit and ripen. But once this pepper plant got going, it wouldn't stop!

What are the pros? Sunshine and good soil
What are the cons? I don't know, it always grows!
I have grown these three years in a row. I never have a problem with them. The bushes are short and absolutely loaded with really large peppers. It's hard to believe a small bush can have so many large peppers on them. Truly amazing!

What are the pros? Hearty & Flavorful
What are the cons? None
These plants required little to no maintenance once they were mature enough to plant outdoors. They thrived despite it being a dry, cool summer. They are hearty, thick peppers with a burst of flavor. Excellent seed!

This is the first time I tried this bell pepper. We had drought, and 90-100 degree days, for about 3 out of 4 weeks, so the plants did not grow very well, and we got few peppers. The tallest plant is a little over 2 ft tall... maybe 1 ft width top/crown. The peppers we got were about 3" x 3", on avg... with 1 or 2 at maybe 3.25 inches. They were good, the few peppers we got. I would give this pepper a "B" grade. There are ell peppers I am growing, perhaps 1 or 2 others, that I like the taste better... but those plants produced even fewer bell peppers than Emerald Giant... iirc... Maybe if we get more of a "normal" Summer weather pattern next year... the plants will grow taller, and we will see a tons of peppers, instead of just a few? Overall... one of the better bell peppers I have grown.. well above average.

We planted 20 of these in 2010, and the plants were productive and hardy - they were strong enough to not have to be staked like our other pepper varieties, yet were 3' by August. The fruit was large and tasty. We used them for fire-roasted peppers (to cook with, or freeze for later) and for eating fresh. Do take care to arrange the young fruit when they are small so they can grow freely. The first fruit grew near the "joints" and the narrow-branching plant would strangle peppers without help.
