Great pepper for northern gardens! Seed started plants fruit early, and fruits mature progressively as the season advances. Plants continue to produce candy sweet fruit right up to a killing frost. Plants take up very little garden space and produce well in semi-crowded conditions. These very healthy plants require very little supplemental water; even in dry-summer areas. Red Belgian pepper rates a "10" in my garden.
