Sweet Non-Bell Types

This group is still not hot, but in some cases a bit stronger pepper flavored. We find many of  these to be excellent for cooking as the strong pepper taste  mellows with  cooking.


Aconcagua- 75 days- Superb, large Cubanelle shaped pepper.  Fruits get large and start out yellow green turning to red. Peppers are very mild.  Large size is dependent upon good soil fertility and adequate spacing of plants.  Pkt. $2.50  Certified Organic Seed


Cubanelle- 65 days - I’ve grown this for years for the farmers’ market.  It always produces huge crops of yellow-green, oblong peppers.  Flavor raw is not superbly sweet, but cooked in stir fries it is mild and sweet. Pkt. $2.00 Certified Organic Seed  (Limit 1 Pkt.)

Giant Marconi

Giant Marconi - 85 days - Tall plants with very large peppers, sweet and elongated in shape.  Peppers are 8-10 inches long and several inches across. Green turning red.  Pkt. $2.50  Certified Organic Seed
