70 days. Gorgeous cheese-type sweet pepper, ripening from green to red. The fruits are round, oblate, and stylishly ribbed—so pretty in the garden or on your table! Thick walled, crisp and juicy fruits keep an extraordinarily long time when refrigerated. An Ohio heirloom, so you know it’s a great performer in northern climates.

What are the pros? Sturdy, easy grow, tasty!

What are the cons? Drop fruit needed bc weight

Review:

Germinates well, hearty grower. Plants take well to topping and drastic pruning for future growth. Hydroponic and soil plants grow well and produce abundant fruit. Definitely needs supports... Fruit is sweet and very mild, with VERY thick walls. Used in everything from spreads, omelets and added fun to pickling mixes! Will keep growing!

What are the pros? Deep taste

What are the cons? Relative productivity

Review:

I garden for high end restaurant chefs. They loved its taste and many noted its mineral and herbal notes. Not overly productive for us in 2015 but it was a truely shitty year for everything... we had to postpone chefs visits to the garden for the whole month of August because of all the cold and rain, so my appreciation of its productivity is only so so.... Well worth growing if only for its superior tadte

What are the pros? drought resistant, sweet fruit

What are the cons? slugs love it

Review:

Even though I planted the seedlings in April, the plants took off when I transplanted them - to Missouri clay, nonetheless! Drought resistant and happily paired next to marigolds, basil, and thyme. Probably didn't get a very high yield as a result of the late planting, but what I did harvest was darling and DELICIOUS. Great snacking, sauteeing, and pickling pepper, but my favorite preparation was roasting it - deep, sweet, smokey, and meaty flavor, now the "secret ingredient" to my vodka sauce. My daughter (5 yrs old) was the main caretaker of the 4 plants, and she picked a few slugs off the stems and mulched - that's about all it needed. She was patient to wait for the deep red color before picking. And she loves telling friends that she grows "sheepnose peppers"!

What are the pros? Thick walled, very sweet

What are the cons? Plant needed stakeing

Review:

I'm so happy I planted this pepper! I was hoping for a mini sweet bell, and was concerned when these peppers kept growing! However, the sweet, juicy flavor, thick walls, and few seeds make this a home run winner in my book. The peppers are about 2.5" wide & long, We've been grilling them, but they are delicious fresh and would be PERFECT for stuffed peppers. I did have to stake the plants, but that was because each 2' plant was loaded with 5-7 peppers by July. Highly recommend if you like sweet peppers!
