Prolific strong plant bears Hungarian-type sweet red peppers. Interesting to find that this variety is very sweet even before turning red. First year growing this variety. Like the idea that it's sweet enough to eat as soon as it's big enough to pick and you don't really have to wait until it turns red for it to be delicious. Will grow this exclusively next year.
