- Peppers, Sweet
I have trouble sometimes getting a decent pepper harvest. I was very close to believing only the hybrids are worth growing in the north, until I found Lipstick! An amazing early red pepper that is very reliable and highly productive. In 70 days flat the plants are loaded with glossy shiny deep red fruits. The fat cone shaped peppers are good raw and in salsa, and also excellent dried, roasted or grilled. I dehydrate them in strips and my kids just snack on them right out of the jar. The plants are only about 20” tall. Awesome!
