Sweet Pepper, Stocky Red Roaster (Organic)
Capsicum annuum. 80 days.
We’ve jumped on the Stocky Red Roaster bandwagon! We grew this red, Italian type pepper for market & loved it for its sweet flavor raw, roasted, or cooked, as well as its productivity & size (4-6″ long, 2″ wide at shoulders). It turns out we weren’t alone, as Stocky Red Roaster fared better than all other varieties in the 2012 Northern Organic Variety Improvement Cooperative (NOVIC) trials & is fast becoming the OP Italian type pepper of choice. Bred by Frank Morton.
This year’s seed produced by the source, Frank & Karen Morton of Wild Garden Seeds, located in Philomath, Oregon.
