75 days—Pointed, wedge-shaped fruits are purple streaked with pale yellow. We originally received a few seeds of this variety from a Russian seed trader. Ripens red. Very lovely and delicious, sweet, crisp and thick-walled.

What are the pros? Productive, pretty, resilient

What are the cons? Aphid-friendly

Review:

This variety produced at a steady rate throughout the growing season, starting earlier than most. The fruits themselves are very sweet when ripe and serve well in both salads and cooked dishes. Out of the dozen or so varieties of pepper I grew, they were the most popular with aphids. To their credit, however, they handled the infestation well and recovered quickly. This one will be a regular in my vegetable garden.

What are the pros? Prolific producer, tasty!

Review:

I grew 4 of these plants last summer, along with 4 Horizon bells. While both performed nicely, Violet Sparkle went crazy in production! I had all 8 in relatively shallow containers. I'd have 4-5 Horizons on each plant, and 15-25 Sparkles! The individual fruits are smaller than a standard bell, but perfect for our use (2 of us) in salads, etc. and the fruit is stunning! This plant could replace ornamental plants, it's so lovely! We had plenty of fresh peppers all growing season, and I have several gallon Ziplocs in the freezer for winter. Very, very happy with this variety.

My favorite pepper
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Beautiful color, so sweet!

What are the cons? long time until ripe

Review:

We will definitely grow these again! These tear drop shaped sweet peppers start yellow, develop beautiful purple streaks, and then ripen through a beautiful sunset orange to a deep ruby red with purple streaks. Just gorgeous! It was like watching a sunset all summer. I was impatient and picked a few in the yellow/purple stage; Don't do this! It will taste bland. Instead, wait until they are a brilliant blood ruby color and the stems break easily off the plant. At this stage they are incredibly sweet! The sweetest peppers I've ever eaten raw. We used a few to make grilled stuffed peppers (cut lengthwise) and I think it was our favorite meal of the summer. I can't say enough great things about these peppers!

Wait until its red
Easy to Grow 5.0

What are the pros? Taste, ease to grow, pretty

What are the cons? not a heavy producer

Review:

I grew this - it had great germination and the pepper looks just like the picture - but when I picked it in it's purple yellow streak stage - I thought it didn't taste very good at all!! Next go around I decided to wait until it turns red - WOW what a change - it's now by far my most favorite sweet pepper. I planted late so didn't get very many peppers on the bush so savored each one! It is thick walled and almost tastes like there's some honey drizzled in it when you eat at it's reddest! Highly recommend.

Pleasantly surprised

What are the pros? Sweet and mild pepper flavor.

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew this out of curiosity, more than anything and was pleasantly surprised. If eaten in the purple stage, they are very mild flavored. If you wait until they turn red, they develop a very sweet flavor. I would often pick one straight off the bush and start munching on it on my way back to the house.
