The Pimiento pepper, also call the Sweet Cherry pepper is crisp with sweet, watery flesh. The heat level can vary from no spice to mild. They are descendants of small peppers native to Central, South, and Mexico and have been cultivated since ancient times.
High yields on this short, upright plant will keep producing until the first freeze. Peppers ripen from green to red. Great to use pickled, dried or whole. Peppers freeze well whole.
Interplant with basil, marigolds, calendula, onions, garlic, chives, thyme, rosemary, and oregano to improve flavor, increase harvest, repel harmful pests, and attract beneficial insects like bees and ladybugs.
Starter will be in a 4" reusable nursery pot.
