This is a beloved variety by many in the Methow Valley.  It is incredibly productive in our climate, for a hot pepper.  It is delicious, hot, but not excessive, and delightfully colorful. Not only that, it is the star of the Willowbrook Farm famous and absolutely amazing smoked hot pepper sauce, and the main ingredient in the amazing Mama Lil's pickled peppers.  One of my first big farming adventures in the Methow was helping Ed Welch of Sunny Pine Farm (when vegetables was a part of their business) try to fulfill a 4 ton contract with Mama Lil's (the peppertunities are endless) and we planted out 6,000 plants on June 5 and it frosted that night! Then a cutworm army stripped most of the leaves and killed many more plants, and we still got over 6,000 lbs of peppers.  The Methow is consistently warmer these days, so its time for increased peppertunities.

How To Grow

  • Why choose locally grown, regionally adapted seeds?

    ✿ Our seeds are intentionally bred to maximize resilience, be resistant to pests and diseases, produce vigorously, and taste delicious.

    ✿ That means our seeds come from plants grown right here and have started the process of acclimating to this region, which makes them easier to grow.

    ✿ We aim to work our land in a way that honors our human and more-than-human kin in the water, soil, and air.
