Big Bertha is my very favorite bell pepper, have grown it for years - when I can find transplants. Sadly the seed stock (F1) was dwindling cause it wasn't being maintained by seed companies in favor of newer releases, but I'm tickled pink to find seed sellers offering it again: Totally Tomatoes, Park Seeds, Jung Seeds, Burpee, Henry Fields, Reimers, and a few others not familiar to me.

Thanks for reminding me how versatile she is and to order BB seeds to grow my own transplants for my spring garden!!! I challenge gardeners not familiar with BB to grow her and report how she does for you.

Down here in TX she's a little thinner skinned then when grown in cooler summer areas, none the less, she's a great addition to the home garden.

I'm growing BB, my plant is 2 years old, in a pot. Big, blocky giant peppers and prolific. Great tasting. We put strips of BB and cheese on top of refried beans and put under the broiler for a few minutes. Umm, good. :)

Here's a pic of my Big Berthas this year. I have 9 peppers and I planted all BBs because she's all I need. Oh, and one banana sweet pepper. I plant 3 to a big pot and they seem to enjoy being crowded. They're in 7 gallon pots. Fertilizer and water hogs, for sure.
