Description

Capsicum annuum

Hybrid. A nicely-flavoured bell pepper with fruit measuring about 8 x 10–12cm. The unripe fruit have a beautiful lavender skin surrounding a delicate ivory flesh. As they ripen, they put on an extraordinary show of colours, turning neon shades of yellow and orange before maturing to a deep red.

The medium-sized plants are productive and early maturing, and can be grown in containers as well as in the ground. We’ve been growing this variety for years, and highly recommend it.
