I have grown Sofia for the past 6 years, and in 2005, I noticed that Stokes was not carrying it in their "standard product line". Too bad. I've always had good luck with this variety. Sometimes, the season won't be long enough to ripen it to red, but usually I get a good yield of both red and green large, good tasting fruit. This year, for the first time I've started to notice some insect problems. Something was eating the leaves and definitely diminished the amount of fruit. I attribute this to Global Warming. The Damn bugs are moving North.

Excellent!! A really good yield of trouble free peppers. These have slightly more heat than a roasting pepper, but very good flavor. Resemble an Anaheim, but much richer flavor and much better yield in Nebraska. I can't find them anymore, but is a real pitty, as my top pepper favorite.
