(55-80 days) A real heirloom red bell pepper with medium thick flesh, grown at Monticello by Thomas Jefferson and listed in 1863 by Fearing Burr . Crisp fruits ripen from green to red with an excellent flavour. Productive, sturdy plants. This variety did very well for us last year- highly recommended.
DetailsFearing Burr Jr. was a noted horticulturist from Hingham, Massachusetts, and author of The Field and Garden Vegetables of America, the 1874 edition of which can be read online at http://www.saveseeds.org/biography/burr/index.html.
