Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Sherilou On Jun 15, 2013, Sherilou from Panhandle Gulf Coast, FL (Zone 8b) wrote:

Tolli's Sweet Italian Pepper is a fast-growing, healthy, productive plant that's quick to produce. The peppers are sweet and delicious, for fresh eating or cooking, with medium-thick walls. They're quick to ripen to red, compared to the other peppers in my garden. You really must grow this pepper... you'll be hooked! Seeds can be purchased from Seed Saver's Exchange.
