Great Peppers

These germinated well & grew into nice strong plants & very prolific. I grew these in 17 gallon containers & in our regular garden beds. All the plants did well. The flesh is juicy/meaty & no after taste when used for stuffed peppers. We use these for fresh eating, freezing for winter, roasting, salads etc. Will use again next year.
