Sweet peppers for the grill

I love these peppers and they are a staple in my garden every year. Productive here in Sacramento. I use a tomato cage for support. Mine grow to at least 3'. Our favorite way to eat them is grilled with grated Tillamook pepper jack cheese on top after taking off the grill. Plated with some of our sweet red pepper bulls horn varieties, it makes a pretty and yummy snack or side dish. Be sure to grow several, because you are going to love them!

Very productive, not at all spicy

Huge harvests of orange peppers in PNW, zone 8b. I started them in early March indoors and planted outside with a Kozy Koat in early May.

Description says poblano type, so I expected a little heat, but there was none. Not a problem for us--just meant I had to share with our toddler.

The green peppers were also delicious, but a little less sweet.

Best sweet pepper

I have grown these for many years and they still top the list for flavor. Better than the red and yellow versions from the same seed breeder. I find the taste much better than any of the "bell" types as well. Plants are very prolific and need strong support to hold up all the weight! Starting them early in a heated greenhouse will get them producing outdoors much earlier. They also perform exceptionally well long term in a greenhouse. I have sown them in December and had them still producing huge amounts of peppers the following November in the PNW.

Excellent peppers once germinated

I planted these along with Jimmy Nardello's indoors in March. The jimmy nardellos came up a lot quicker so I sort of gave up on these. However eventually they did sprout and produced very attractive tasty peppers. I likely would have received a larger crop of orange peppers If I started earlier as I left many green peppers on the plant hoping they'd ripen before frost. I will grow these again!

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.
