68 days. Early, good-sized peppers of a heavy yielding habit. The variety thrives in the cooler summer weather so prevalent in New England and yields crisp bells, green ripening to red, right up until frost.

Here in North Louisiana we have temps in high 90"s and 100 . These peppers grew very well and is also a very good producer, I will grow these in my garden every year.

What are the pros? Tasty peppers

What are the cons? Low production

Review:

I figured going with a short season sweet pepper plant would be a smart move here in the northeast. But this pepper was very slow to produce peppers. While other peppers were going strong, these three plants just hung out and watched the other peppers put on a show. It was slow to flower. And I only ended up with 4 peppers per plant, for a total of 12 peppers from the three plants for the season. And I didn't get those 12 peppers into almost November. They were delicious peppers, but I'm not sure I've seen a bell pepper plant produce so little before these. Maybe they're too tuned for a colder climate, and didn't like our mild summer? Not sure. But I didn't plant them again this year.

What are the pros? good fruit production

What are the cons? maybe diseased seed

Review:

I grew Ozark Giant, King of the North, and Red Cheese in 2018. Disclaimer: I used straw mulch which suppressed soil temperatures and pepper plant growth. Of the varieties chosen, Red Cheese produced earliest and also the most individual red fruit (10 fruit per plant), but the flesh was tightly wrapped around the seeds, which made them fussy to eat raw or cut up. Ozark Giant produced 0 fruit for me, Ajvarski produced 5 red fruit per plant, and King of the North produced 5 red fruit per plant. Both Ozark Giant and King of the North were defoliated by a bacterial disease that started in the King of the North (possible seed contamination?). Interestingly, despite near complete defoliation, King of the North produced as much fruit as Ajvarski. The King of the North fruit also grew upside down, like some small chile pepper varieites! However, most fruit also ended up with bacterial spots. Ajvarski was bullet proof, but isn't a classic bell shape if that's what you're into.

Review:

We've grown this one for a couple of years here at 5,800 feet in the foothills of the Rockies. They have been very productive, but like most heat-loving plants, a little slow to get started here. We typically have green peppers by August, and red by September. The only problem I have is the peppers get too heavy and start breaking branches off, even when staked or caged. Have to go out after thunderstorms or strong wind and clean up.

Review:

I have wanted to grow peppers for years and this was my first true success! That might be why I'm in love with them. I grew two other varieties last summer (2016) and this was my favorite. The flesh was thinner than the red bell peppers I buy at the grocery store, and mine were not as sweet, but otherwise they're marvelous. I used them both red and green and we made lots of fajitas with these babies! They produced large, abundant fruits. I grew some in pots on my porch and planted some in my raised beds. The raised beds did MUCH better. The pots were okay, but struggled to produce fruit. If growing in a pot, make sure to keep the soil evenly moist! They started doing better when I put a tray underneath to collect water and keep the soil wet. I started all my peppers indoors and put them outside in as much sun as I could manage once the weather turned warm.
