Peppers


We have a small collection of peppers with our most reliable varieties being Yankee Bell and Hot Hungarian Wax. We have not been very consistent with successfully growing multiple pepper varieties as they often require warmer growing conditions and we don’t always have that here on the prairies. Despite that, we often try a new pepper or two out of curiosity yearly.

Yankee Bell

Our best producer is Yankee Bell, an early 3 to 4-lobed pepper, ripening green to red. Bred by Johnny’s Selected Seeds in Maine. It was grown near enough to another sweet pepper in previous years that there may have been some crossing. They were still lovely peppers and produced a wonderful yield this year.

Sunrise Orange

We grew Sunrise Orange for the first time in 2013. Rachelle brought the seed from a farm she WWOOFed at in France. It is a wonderfull bell pepper which turns orange at maturity. Good yield and sweet juicy fruits. Seems to be an early and productive variety to grow for the North.
