Sweet Pepper, Ruby King
This variety was first offered in the 1977 Seed Savers Exchange Yearbook by Dr. John Wyche. These large sweet bell peppers can be harvested when they are green, but if allowed to ripen on the vine, they will develop a beautiful red color. Pepper species are native to the Americas and have been cultivated for thousands of years. The Spanish and Portuguese brought them back to Europe and to their colonies in Africa and Asia.
