2000 The USDA/ARS announces the release of a new pepper (Capsicum annuum) cultivar named 'Tangerine Dream.' 'Tangerine Dream' is a suitable cultivar for dual ornamental and culinary applications. Tangerine Dream's spreading prostrate growth habit and brightly colored upright oriented fruit provide an attractive ornamental display while its sweet non-pungent fruit flavor contributes to its culinary appeal. Tangerine Dream was derived from an initial cross between the sweet hybrid bell pepper cultivar 'Cadice' and the open pollinated sweet squash type pepper cultivar 'Tenneessee Cheese. (70 day)
