We will forever be grateful for Roberta Bailey tucking a few of these seeds in the mail with the humble nudge of, ‘try these!’ Indeed, these bodaciously blocky bells are succulent and sweet, impressively abundant and ohhhh so beautiful! Each luminous purple pepper is green just underneath the skin, turning green when cooked and the ripe red fruit is heaven to slice, stuff and snack on.
Roberta (let it be known!) has been co-adapting with organic Purple Beauty pepper in Maine for many years, so fear not: If you grow in short seasons and would love to be surrounded by pecks of purple peppers nonetheless, thank Roberta!
