Sweet Pepper, Pointy Kaibi #1 (Organic)

Capsicum annuum. Green to Red. 70 days.

Excellent early maturing dark red sweet pepper that is definitely one of our favorites. Pointy Kaibi #1 is not overly sweet for fresh eating, instead having an incredible aroma which makes it excellent for sweet paprika. Not only will this variety fill the house with an unbearably delicious aroma while in the dehydrator, it also keeps fresh longer than any other sweet pepper we have tried. Pointy Kaibi #1 can sit in a cardboard tray in the garage easily for a month, if not longer. An heirloom originally from Bulgaria. Variety given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by Real Seeds in Wales. They received it from Mitko Antonov whose family in central Bulgaria has been growing it for generations.

Seed produced by White Oak Farm in Albany, Oregon.

Geographical Origin

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.

Seed Saving

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.

    This is the most productive sweet pepper I have ever grown in my cold windy location in central Alberta (albeit under row cover most of the time). It way outproduced the others. Highly recommended.

    Very Productive in Hot Humid Climate

    My entire family loves this sweet pepper.
    It’s very productive and taste great.
    I live in the South, zone 8a. Over the years, I’ve had a very hard time finding a very productive sweet pepper until now. In the past, we planted sweet peppers in full sun and some in part shade areas with no luck. We plant the Pointy Kaibi #1 the same as we’ve planted other sweet peppers, morning sun afternoon shade by 1pm to 2pm. Other spots we planted it where it got full sun with very little afternoon shade. Both areas were productive, yet to our surprise, the one receiving longer sun hours did very well in our hot humid climate and out produced the Pointy Kaibi #1 that got afternoon shade. This one is a keeper.
