Easily the best bell pepper variety I have ever grown. This is the standard to which all others will be measured from now on. Huge yields, tough as nails (disease/insect resistance), good vigor, taste was on-par or better than other classic varieties and fruit were thick walled and highly useful for salsa (my primary usage for peppers). Fruits are not a true yellow though, more like a light green apple, but will turn more yellow if you let them ripen on the plant for a couple weeks.

Hamilton, Tennessee, United States
Frost Free Season: 183 - 203 days
Soil Texture: Clay
Garden Size: Medium - 400 square feet to 1,600 square feet
Sun Exposure: 6 to 8 hours per day

Very beautiful. Good sweet pepper taste. Easy to grow. Average to better productivity. Grown in container in 1/2 day sun. Started with seedling, not seeds. I will grow more this year in different conditions, larger containers or raised beds. It did not wimp out too early with cooler/cold weather with some protection, but did not set more peppers. Did I say really beautiful? It is.
