'Doe Hill' is a classic, golden-yellow, pumpkin-shaped heirloom sweet pepper from the Doe Hill area of Highland County, VA. While the plants and fruit are small in stature, they are big on flavor! The fruit's thick walls make it great for stuffing or pickling. It matures relatively early and produces over a long season.

GROWING TIPS: Start seeds indoors in March. After danger of frost transplant to garden with 14-18 inches between plants. They tend to grow up tall and not out, so a foot or slightly more between plants should work, especially if you have limited space. Trellising may help the plants, but is not necessary.
