This delicious sweet delight is a favorite snack for my 6 year old son. Thick fleshed and delicious, they can be eaten raw or roasted or any other way you can imagine. Plants are quite productive with adequate water and fertility. A nice short season, but still, make sure to give them as much time as possible to ripen in our climate.

Fun fact, some species (including pepper) can have dormancy in the seed the first few months after seed is harvested and then over time the germination rates can actually increase.  Pepper seed will often keep good germ rates up to 10 years or more!

~30-40 seeds per packet

  • 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.
