Quote from Sustainable Seed Co.:

Brilliant red with smooth sides and medium-thick walls. Joelene's Red has strong shoulders tapering to a slightly blunted tip. Fruits average 9-11"s. This is an early, sweet frying or roasting pepper. Very good keeper with final harvest lasting till the end of October
