medium to large, heavy walled fruit, low yeild, plants seem to attract mites more so than different cultivars grown in the same area at the same time. Best if grown in partial shade. Container suitable..

A huge blocky red pepper. I didn't measure it but I think it was definitely bigger than 4" - more like 6". Very imposing, sweet and juicy. It was not as productive as some of the smaller peppers I grew though - there was a wave of big peppers early on, then another wave later in the summer and that was it.
