These compact plants produce a good number of large, red sweet bell peppers.  They always perform very well in the shelter of a high tunnel, but this year's crop was grown outdoors and yielded an abundance of ripe red fruit in our climate.  Remember, peppers are wonderful at after-ripening. If frost is on the way and peppers are not all the way colored, you can harvest them, place them in a closed box in a cool place and give them a week or two, most will completely turn, and taste sweet and delicious.  It is fine to eat them green, but they are so much better ripe!

  • 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.
