TONS OF THICK-WALLED BELLS!
This open-pollinated Sheepnose type was discovered and revived by seed-saver and permaculturist, Rob Danford, in the Smoky Mountains of Ashe County, North Carolina.
At maturity, it yields an incredibly sweet, bright-red, super thick-fleshed pimento pepper measuring about 3 - 4" in diameter by 1½ inches tall.
These peppers tolerate cool evenings and morning dew better than most and are drought- tolerant, to boot, making these a great candidate for growing in a pot on your deck!
Great raw, as well as for cooking, roasting, and canning - holding a good texture and flavor. Their squat shape is ideal for stuffing.
