Please bring back transplants?

I bought these as transplants in 2021 and 2022 and loved them. Great flavor, perfect amount of heat, and so colorful in the garden. I'm really disappointed that Territorial is only offering seed for 2023, since I don't have a setup for starting seeds indoors - maybe I can get a friend to start some for me.

Great new variety!

The Cozumel pepper was my runaway hit this summer! Prolific producer, even in a container. Great looking peppers that go through a colorful evolution. And the taste is special! mildly spicy with citrusy notes. Great for salsas, in salads, and for sautés with peppers and sausage. I will definitely be planting these again!

Amazing Flavor and Producer!

This pepper plant is amazing! I purchased a transplant for April arrival. (For planting in zone 7.) It produced harvestable peppers from June until late September. The flavor is mildly spicy and deliciously complex.

Capsicum annuum Our wide array of fabulous peppers, both sweet and hot, offers one of the richest sources of nutrients in the plant kingdom. Hot peppers contain capsaicin, which revs up your metabolism and reduces general inflammation in the body.

• Extra calcium and phosphorus are needed for highest yields
• Plants perform best when grown in raised beds and covered with plastic mulch

• Peppers grow slowly in cool soils; do not transplant before weather has stabilized
• Peppers set fruit best between 65-85°F

Direct Sowing
