Sweet Pepper, 'Marta Polka'


This popular Polish variety is well known to European growers: a lobed, bell-type producing heavy sets of thick-walled fruit that ripen from green to bright yellow/gold. The compact plants have a good upright habit and don’t generally require staking. We don’t tend to grow many bells anymore, but this one is a winner with excellent sweetness and beautiful color, great for rainbow crudité plates.
