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.

I did not get any fruit but perhaps they were in the ground too late.

Not a great pepper year altogether, but these held their own and gave us a decent crop.  I will plant them again.

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.
