Yummy Snacking Pepper

This is a snack sized pepper meant to eat like a banana, but there's no peel, of course. Eat them by the bowl full.

You will love this snack-sized petite sweet pepper that is nearly seedless. It ripens from green to yellow, apricot-orange, or red. This is a very sweet, flavorful pepper that often converts those folks who say, "No thanks, I don't like peppers." When fully ripe, it is so sweet that you hardly know its a pepper.It makes an impressive show when spread on a platter for parties and as a great healthy snack for kids (they love it!). The plant is pretty, too, especially in a container. Heavy foliage helps protect the peppers from sunburn. Plant one per 15-inch (or larger) pot.
