These wonderful, sweet frying peppers come to us from Southern Italy. They are taller than most and have rich green peppers that mature to a beautiful red. Classically fried with a little olive oil, salt and garlic before being chopped and added to tomatoes and basil. They are amazing!
Sweet Pepper: These peppers were native to North America before spreading across the world. They deserve their worldwide appeal too! Sweet peppers run the gamut from smaller lunchbox size to large boxy stuffing peppers. Their flavors can be smokey or sweet or sharp. All of which are worth exploring!
Growing Tips: Sweet peppers love sun and heat! They do great all summer long in a greenhouse as well as in the garden. Give peppers plenty of fertility and at least 12 inches between plants.
