Organic Peacework Pepper Peacework pepper is an extraordinary testament to the power of farmer + plant breeder collaborations. Here in western New York, Elizabeth Henderson and her team at Peacework Farm worked with Cornell University to select and stabilize this outstanding open-pollinated sweet pepper, in cooperation with the Organic Seed Partnership in the late '90s. Elizabeth gifted us some of her stock seed from the project in 2015 and we were flabbergasted to see how well it performed in the drought of 2016. Maturing 30+ green fruits per plant that almost half fully ripened to red, their juicy sweetness outcompeted anything else we tasted all summer. Most fruits are medium-sized blocky bells, though there is still some variability in shape: some are longer, some more tapered, some short and sweet. We will continue to select Peacework for many seasons to come, excited to continue to refine this excellent strain of sweet pepper for the Northeast.

best peppers March 10, 2019
Reviewer: Andrea from Syracuse, NY  
I've tried bell peppers for years and they never worked. Last year was the first year I got so many I had to FREEZE some.

Peacework pepper January 6, 2019
Reviewer: david hillmann from altamont, NY United States  
On the plus side this variety turned a bright attractive red. The fruit was quite sweet.The Plants held up well. The variety set a lot of fruit per plant but only negative was the fruit was quite small and did not sell well for that reason.

Prolific and Early Maturing January 5, 2019
Reviewer: Michele Brodbeck from Bartlett, IL United States  
I live in the Chicago Suburbs zone 5b.  I have a hard time growing large bell peppers so I mostly rely on smaller sweet pepper varieties.  I grew 3 Peacework Pepper plants and was astonished at how many peppers set and how many I was able to actually get to mature before the season ended.  They were sweet and beautiful in color.  They were definitely smaller than most bells that I'm use to seeing but the taste and number of peppers made up for that. This will definitely be a garden staple.

Great taste, good producer January 1, 2019
Reviewer: Joe Alati from Honeoye Falls, NY United States  
Although the peppers are a bit small this is a keeper unless I can find one that grows larger and tastes as good.
