Lipstick Sweet Pepper - Your New Favorite Pepper
A very early specialty pepper, 5" cone shaped fruits ripen a glossy, rich lipstick red. Dependably early, heavy yields even in cool summers. One of the most delicious and sweetest peppers on the market. This pepper has very few seeds.
Excellent for salsa, salads, cooking, and roasting. Perfect for home gardens and market growers.
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.
Peppers are used fresh, dried, and cooked. Peppers contain vitamins A and C.

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. Met catalog description. Plants grew well, somewhat smaller than Bull Nose and California Wonder. The yield was good, red peppers very attractive, tasty and the plant trouble free. Would recommend for this area.
