Description

A long, tapering sweet pepper, Organic Mountaineer Sweet Pepper 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.

    Phenomenal pepper. Super sweet and productive. Beautiful deep rich red color and solid walled. My daughter loves to pick them off the plant and bite right in like an apple. Great plant!

    Wow! This pepper is so vigorous, it seems to think it’s a tomato. Most specimens were taller than some of my tomatoes in the grow room. Might benefit from being started later than other annuums. While not as sweet as Collage pepper, Mountaineer is in a hurry to provide you with earlier, larger fruit.

    These are so cute! I grew them in upstate NY in big cloth pots. They produced so much more than I expected! The fruits were petite sized bell peppers with very sweet flavor. This is the most success I’ve ever had from a pepper so they will be my go-to from now on!

    Even in the drought this year, I am not a very consistent waterer, these peppers were awesome! I have grown them for 3 years now, wet, drought, average summer, these are consistent and high producing. Sweet and actually turn red before the end of the season. So many peppers on these small plants that they benefit from a little support. I will never be without these peppers!
