Product description

Southern Exposure Seed Exchange Revived by North Carolina seed saver Rob Danford. One of the few peppers that reliably produces well in the short Smoky Mountain growing season (150 days or less). An incredibly sweet, bright red, thick-fleshed pimento pepper, 4 x 1½ in. Great raw, as well as for cooking, roasting, and canning. Small (24-30 in.) plants may be closely spaced (18 in. apart).

These peppers are from Ashe County, town of West Jefferson in the Smoky Mountains. These peppers are small in size but big in flavor.  They have a concentrated sweetness and mild pepperiness.
