    A very popular open pollinated bell pepper. Medium size but nice shape and reasonably productive. In fact the most productive open pollinated bell that I have grown.

    These are a very popular variety of bell pepper. The ones I grew tended to be short and fairly square, most with four lobes. Great for making stuffed peppers, as they stand upright well in a baking dish. The downside is that these seemed very prone to blight in my garden.
