An excellent performer under my conditions. Large blocky fruits are very uniform. Excellent disease resistance. It is the earliest maturing bell that I have grown.

This is a very large, blocky, bell pepper. It generally is quite rounded (as tall as wide) and 4-6 sided in cross-section. It gets 4-6 inches in diameter and sometimes achieves giant status! It has thick walls and turns red quickly. For all this, it\'s fairly early for me, and I live in a rather short-season area and need to use black plastic ground mulch and early in the season, row covers to get things going well for the warm-season crops. It\'s my favorite \'green\' to red pepper. It does well here and while it does sunscald with our altitude and near cloudless summers, not as much as other bells.
