PEPPER (Capsicum chinense) (90-100 days)—

"Gifted to us from a great person, friend, pepper farmer in Jamaica, intellect, seed saver, and supporter of diversity. Nice balance of heat and citrus tones. Requires a long season to get this beauty to mature, but if you can pull it off, you have yourself a delicious treat that will take you to the Caribbean. We love this dish in a Jamaican pumpkin soup recipe that we will share with you if you buy these. We have several plants that we have overwintered for several years, which is a great way to get a jump on the season. When overwintered, the leaves shed in the fall, but grow back large in the late winter.-Buffalo Seed Company
