Description

Bull Nose Sweet Pepper - No Bull About It

A very early bell pepper with uniform ripening that turns from green to bright scarlet red that is both sweet and a little spicy. A prolific producer, great fresh or stuffed. Indentation on blossom end resembles a bull's nose. An heirloom pepper from India around 1759, it was grown by Thomas Jefferson.

Amelia Simmons refers to these peppers in her 1796 “American Cookery” (said to be the first American cookbook). 

History

Indigenous to Central and South America, peppers were developed into a crop plant around 3,000 BC or perhaps even earlier. Columbus introduced Capsicum into Europe and it also spread to Africa and Asia.

Uses

Peppers are used fresh, dried, and cooked. Peppers contain vitamins A and C.

    An excellent pepper that had a high yield

    Posted by Stephen Scott on Jul 26th 2017

    The Master Gardeners at the historic Francis Land House Heirloom Vegetable Garden in Virginia Beach, Virginia are providing feedback on the donated seeds. Our garden consists of 35 raised beds, each four feet by twenty feet. The garden receives full sun all day and is fertilized with a combination of compost and commercial organic fertilizer. An excellent pepper that had a high yield with good foliage to avoid sun scald and fruit that was thick fleshed and sweet. The plants held up very well despite the hot summer we experienced.
