Peter Piper would love to pick a peck of these sweet, small peppers for his pickled peppers! Delicious fresh in salads, stuffed for an appetizer, and ideal for canning and pickling. The cherry tomato-sized peppers can be eaten green or ripened to a brilliant red or yellow for full flavor. Red pepper seeds are colored red, while yellow pepper seeds are natural so you can be sure which one you are sowing. Grows well in containers.

Nice plants, but not as sweet as imagined or described

I bought a pack of these at the local garden center and I planted all seeds and kept only six plants. The sweet moniker is a misnomer as these plants have heat. It is very mild like a warming sensation. Packaging quality is suspect. One of my plants is a jalapeno of some sort. I did not buy any more pepper seeds. Given how long it takes to grow peppers. This is most disappointing.

Disease Resistant

Question: How Disease Resistant is this plant? Is it very suspectable to mosiac wilt? Any other information you can share would be great. I gave it a 4 star review even though I am just now starting my seeds indoors based on cuteness of package, prettyness of plant but took off a star because I wish seed companies would put disease resistant ratings on the package. Thanks!

Owner Response: Hello Ramons, these cultivars are not disease resistant. We do add any disease resistance to the back of the packet when it is applicable.
