Sweet Pepper, 'Stocky Red Roaster'

Another gem from Wild Garden Seed, this pepper has caused a stir in the seed world the past couple years as it bested OP’s and hybrids alike in trials on both coasts for yields and quality. It got the nod and is playing in the big leagues now, and for good reason. A fire engine red, elongated Italian type with straight, thick-walled, refined fruits in spades. An excellent production variety that benefits from cover in cooler areas.
