An heirloom dating back to the 1800's, this variety was saved and reintroduced by Mr. H.W. Alfrey, owner of Alfrey Seeds, from Knoxville, Tennessee.  He spent years collecting seed from only the most "anatomically realistic" fruits. He continued his project, until his death in 2000.

 

Fruits are 4 to 6 inches in length, and slightly wrinkled. To obtain the greatest amount of 'anatomical' consistency, avoid overwatering. Pods start out green, maturing to a nice bright red. They can be used at stage. Plants grow 24 to 30 inches tall with excellent production.

 

A great conversation piece in the garden or in the kitchen due to its distinctively phallic shape. They make excellent chili powder and are great for salsas!

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!

      ALL PLANTS ARE 100% ORGANIC - GUARANTEED!
