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.

Great peppers! November 30, 2018
Reviewer: Paige from Livonia, NY United States  
These are easy to grow, and create an abundance of peppers. Had a little trouble with them rotting before they turned red, which we figured out was because they weren't getting enough sun during the day. Once we moved some things around to give them more sun, we ended up harvesting peppers well into the fall!

Peacework Pepper November 14, 2017
Reviewer: Heather Estey from Tully, NY United States  
This pepper really brought it this season! So happy we gave it a try - healthy, productive plants. Still getting the last of them into the freezer now in November!  Ready to make Peacework our anchor variety for sweet peppers.
