70–75 days. Just WOW! This little snacking pepper is as delicious as it looks, and its plant is pretty enough to fit right into the most stunning ornamental garden.

Tasty moderate producer

I wouldn't say these will win a production award, but they are pretty and tasty. I've only been growing in Idaho for about three years, and I have a little more difficulty with sweet and bell peppers as compared to hot for some reason, whereas back in WV I had the opposite. At any rate, worth a try. They make nice tasting peppers for stuffing, and they hold up well without getting tough which can sometimes happen though rare with other varieties. This guy is probably best for fresh eating or to brighten up a cold dish. Plant won't be as big as many bell/sweet peppers, so it'll make a great container/raised bed grower. 4 stars for the moderate production compared to other sweet peppers even taking into account my struggles with sweet peppers. Still trying to figure out what slightly stunting the sweet pepper plant's potential when compared to my hot peppers which just fine and/or exceed expectation.

Cute and tasty!

Grew one of these as a transplant last year. Moderate production of lovely and tasty peppers. Nice sweet taste that the kids loved fresh. Harvested at various stages, you get a beautiful array of colors and they all taste good. Variegated foliage on this compact plant is attractive, too. Ordering another for this season!
