Very high yielding and easy to grow! I found these easier to grow than bell peppers and they fruit a lot more and quicker too. These are currently surviving well in Autumn so I am hoping they will survive the winter and keep growing year on year!

These were very good to serve up to dinner guests, they looked more attractive than normal bell style peppers. They also looked lovely in our garden, next year ill try them in a pot. Thanks again The Seed Collection!
