These plants are doing OK in my Michigan garden. Looks like tons on little peppers coming on each of 6 plants. They plants look like they'll remain short....probably under 2 feet tall for the most part (some are taller than others at the moment, but they all were the same height when planted about mid-May)

This variety is a good choice for a container or small space - compact plants are highly prolific producers of miniature elongated bells, approximately 2-3 inches long. Thin walls, sweet, very few seeds make them easy to slice over salad, stuff with cold fillings or just eat out of hand. Very pretty orangey-gold fruit.

I'm glad I found these at our local Amish garden center this spring. The plants only had a hand-printed nametag, but the salesperson assured me they were compact miniature bells, and they were spot on in their description.

I definitely want to grow them again, either from seed or local plant sources.
