I have grown this pepper for three or four years now, saving the seed. It is by far the thickest walled, most delicious bell I have ever grown. In the greenhouse I get massive, four walled beauties and no pest problems. Outdoors, in the alternating deluges and droughts, hot sun, and all the many pests, it still is productive, though the appearance of the fruits is less than perfect due to thrips. I am going to try the red version next, Quadrato d'Asti Rosso, and see if it does as well here for me.
