Setting the bell pepper standard since the 1920s!

According to Winniford Family Farm: "I love these bell peppers!  I’ve been growing them for a decade, and they consistently give me a high yield of large, thick-walled peppers. They take just a few days longer than King of The North, but they’re bigger and weightier and in my opinion tastier."

This variety does not require a trellis!

Indigenous people in modern-day Mexico domesticated chiles from their wild crop ancestor the Chiltepin thousands of years ago, adapting it into so many unique and delicious varieties. When the European colonizers came, they took chiles back to Europe, referring to them as peppers because of their spicy flavor, which reminded them of peppercorns. Now chiles are beloved and cultivated by cultures all over the world, and despite the devastating legacy of colonization, the descendants of their original seed stewards continue to persist and cultivate them today. Sweet peppers are a relatively modern concoction, but one we are very grateful for!

This is an heirloom variety!
