Ashe County Pimiento Pepper
An exquisitely gourmet heirloom pimento from the Blue Ridge Moutains of North Carolina. This super sweet red pepper is squat and small, about 3-4 inches wide and just 1-1.5 inches long, but it packs an incredibly flavor - ful, juicy punch. Thanks to its mountainous origins, this variety is appreci - ated for being more early maturing and even a little bit more cold tolerant than other peppers. The tidy plants are just 24-30 inches tall, but they are smothered in scrumptious fruit, perfect for pickling, stuffing, roasting, snacking and for making pimento cheese.
