(Capsicum annuum) A 19th century family heirloom from the Appalachian town of the same name (population 75) in Highland County, VA, Doe Hill reminds us of a sunset orange version of a sheepnose pimento type mini bell. Averaging about 5 lobes it has surprisingly thick flesh for its diminutive size and just fantastic, very sweet flavor. Early and prolific it is borne on short bushy 2-2 ½ ’ plants that don’t require much in the way of support. This one is wonderful for crudite plates, to skewer and grill, and just begs to be stuffed with some deliciousness and served as an appetizer.
