Large plants produce large amounts of blocky, thick walled, bells that are super delicious. Grown well, fruits can be huge - I have had several fruits that I could barely wrap both of my hands around! Keeping the fruits picked will increase overall yields.
This one definitely needs to be staked, as plants will be heavily fruit laden.
Roasted, stuffed and baked, or eaten fresh in salads, Emerald Giant's large, thick fleshed peppers have more vitamin C than an orange!
