Sweet Pepper, Amish Yellow Stuffing (Organic)
Capsicum annuum. Green to Yellow-Orange. 75 days.
Bright yellow-orange mini bell peppers grow to about 2″ across. The high yielding plants pump out sweet and tasty, fun-sized fruit. The size makes them very versatile – perfect for snacking or adding to salads, pickling whole, or stuffed as an appetizer. Plants have a small stature that make them well suited for container gardening. Seed given to us by Ann Berblinger of Gales Meadow farm, who noticed their care-free productivity here in Oregon. Originally sold by Amishland Seeds who sourced them from a local farm in the village of Landis Valley near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Aka, Sweet Yellow Stuffing.
Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots when they have their first two true leaves. Transplant out into the garden after danger of frost has passed, typically late May in western Oregon.
To save seed, wait until fruit is fully ripe. Remove seeds from fruit and dry. Isolate from other pepper varieties of the same species by at least 500 feet.
