This sweet wax pepper takes 60 days to grow. We’re thrilled to offer this classic, heirloom that has been grown by generations of gardeners. It's a sleek, tapered fruit that reaches 6 to 7 inches long and 2 inches wide. When this pepper is immature it has a translucent ivory color. The peppers ripen quickly to stunning red-orange. It's superb in salads, stuffed, pickled and more. What a true treasure!
