80 days. Candy-sweet, round, flat, 3-inch pimento-type peppers that have thick, red flesh; great for stuffing or fresh eating. So good they are almost addictive. Very productive plants. Once used to color cheese.

Review:

I got my first seed for these from Baker Creek. I've grown them for nearly ten summers now and they never fail to deliver. Though the peppers are small, hardly ever as big as a tennis ball, they are very thick-walled. I allow them to turn color and have saved the seed every year for my next crop. Over the years, I've had yellow and orange colors show up (not on the same plant), so now I grow red, orange and yellow cheese peppers. They tend to yield lightly in our hot Oklahoma summers and the plants wilt from the heat. They need plenty of water. In the fall when temperatures cool, they really go to town. I chop and freeze them with no blanching needed. It always amazes me how fast they fill up a gallon container, but that's because the flesh is so thick. This summer, I'm going to try making canned pimientos from some. I have 7 year-old seed that's still passing the viability test. Pre-germinate seed in damp coffee filters as peppers are slow to germ.

Review:

Of the hundred varieties of sweet peppers I've grown over the years, this is my favorite. My two Red Cheese pepper plants lived 7 years and their delicious bounty increased with each year. Alas, they are no longer with me but I still have some of the original seed remaining. If it's not viable I will re-order from rareseeds.com to ensure it's the same variety because this pepper was too good to chance from another supplier. They were very sweet with juicy, thick walls and they grew for years in large planters. In Phoenix AZ, they produced year round when covered with a sheet at temps below 40 degrees and shaded at temps above 100 degrees.

Review:

This plant produces very pretty peppers that are very thick and juicy. This a very nice pepper to have in the garden. The plants are compact and seem to have good disease resistance. I really like the look of the peppers. They have very nice color and thick juicy flesh while not being too crunchy. Taste is superb (way better than a bell pepper). Highly recommended. Comparable to the topeppo rosso pepper.

Review:

Had 87% germination rate on fresh seeds. Hopefully that will continue over the next few years. Plants did very well in a closet with 4 30th equivalent CFLs. All look super happy and about ready to go in the ground.

Review:

I first bought this pepper seed a few years ago. The first year it was great, Germinated well and the peppers tasted so good. Very sweet and flavorful. I got a lot of peppers off every plant. They dehydrate great! The next year germination seemed way off. But the peppers were good off what few plants I got. I usually grow 100 plus pepper seedlings and have good luck with my germination of different kinds. This last year no germination, I split the pack of seeds with a friend who lives in an entirely different area and is a great gardener and she too had very poor germination, she got 3 plants off the seed. I am not sure what the issue is with the germination on this pepper.
