A large-ish thick-walled blocky green pepper. It matures to red, but is billed as a pepper to use for green peppers. That doesn't sound very interesting, but I really liked having one bush as a designated "green" pepper bush. That way I didn't have to feel guilty picking peppers in the green stage, and I could let all my other peppers ripen fully.
