We're really excited to add this new orange sweet pepper to the catalog. Introduced by Frank Morton and Wild Garden Seeds in 2022, Dusty grew it out for us in Minnesota in 2023 and found it true to Frank's write-up: "The name describes the goal of this selection out of the 'Stoplight Orange' breeding pool. Very early for bell peppers in our cool-night climate, and longer fruit than typical American bells, more Euro in pepper style. Heavy fruit set requires a low trellis to hold up the yield. Fruit holds well on the plant and keeps well in season’s end storage. Bright color is retained in cooking. Very sweet." Give it a try!
