Additional Fact Sheets

Miniture Red

Sweet Variety

Short stocky plants covered with lovely 2" long miniature bell peppers with an excellent fresh flavor. A friend gave the yellow and red versions to Seed Savers Exchange member Lucina Cress of Ohio, who stuffed the peppers with cabbage, pickled and canned them to sell at her church bazaar. Great for salads. 

King of the North Sweet

Sweet Variety

Excellent in short-season gardens, due to early bearing and the huge, blocky shape of its thick-walled, bright red, 6" by 4" fruits. Great for stuffing. Mild taste becomes even mellower as the fruits mature.
