Have grown this pepper for two years now with excellent results.Heavy producer of sweet, thick walled Cubanelle style peppers. Very few of ours ever make it to the red ripe stage as we enjoy them when they are yellow green. They have become our "everyday" pepper in the garden. Raw in salads or for snacking, stir fried, and large enough to split in half for stuffing. Produces late into the fall with an abundance left for freezing for winter use. Stores well in the refrigerator also. Highly recommend.
