Organic Mountaineer Sweet Pepper
53 days to green fruit harvest | 68 to red fruit harvest | Capsicum annuum
A long, tapering sweet pepper, Mountaineer is impressively prolific with bright, floral sweetness for snacking as well as supper. Each plant is short and stout, fully focused on fruit rather than foliage. Will Bonsall, thanks for sharing with the world yet another marvel from Khadigar!
Friends, when Will Bonsall speaks, we pay attention. When he gives us seeds, we pay close attention. If you haven’t seen “Seed: The Untold Story,” do yourself the favor and you’ll get to know Will well! If you ever get a chance to hear him speak, don’t dally. His recent book, “Will Bonsall’s Essential Guide to Radical, Self-Reliant Gardening,” is a joy as well as genius. Sharing varieties that Will has developed to thrive in Maine is one of the greatest honors we have here at Fruition. His other marvel is Gardener’s Sweetheart tomato. He also is the source of our heirloom Ziar’s Breadseed poppy, as well.
Grow Like a Pro: With precious few exceptions, peppers are green before turning their final color of seed maturity. Mountaineer will surround you with abundant green peppers which will quickly turn red as their seeds ripen.
