Always producing

5 out of 5 stars Mar 24, 2019
This pepper produced all summer and fall. Once it gets going it can't be stopped. I had bugs attack one plant but it just kept producing. It's a perfect low maintenance plant. I still plant other peppers but I wouldn't be sad if this was the only pepper in my garden.

Swapped seeds without asking customer

1 out of 5 stars Sep 23, 2020
The company swapped these seeds out because they were out of stock. Not okay, I never would have bought the seeds they gave me, they were a different kind of pepper entirely. I needed mild chilies that grow in my region. Please contact customer with alternatives instead of swapping them yourself.
Karen Schultz from CO
Owner Response: Hi Karen, We are truly sorry you were disappointed with the substitution we chose for your out-of-stock item. Due to the unprecedented increase in volume this spring, we were not able to contact every customer but tried our best to make sure orders were fulfilled to the best of our ability with limited staff. We changed our policy to no longer substitute seed packets with exception to those in collections. A customer service agent will be contacting you.

This is a vigorous growing Italian-type sweet pepper! Can be harvested green for a great green pepper taste. If allowed to mature further it becomes a classic rich red New Mexico pepper. Pepper plants continue to grow and ripen peppers into early Fall.

I've grown these peppers a few times now and they are delicious! Very easy to grow and make great diced green chilies for canning or freezing.
