We've very excited to be offering this new orange bell pepper from Frank Morton and Wild Garden Seeds. Here's what Frank has to say about it: "This was the color I was looking for in a big bell. Goes from dark green to a true rich orange. Thick walls, super sweet, large lobes, and very early for bell peppers in western Oregon. Many thanks to Darrel Jones of Hamilton, Alabama, for making the cross between a big orange bell and our ‘Little Bells,’ and sending us some F2 seed. And yes, there is an orange light on traffic signals...it happens when the light goes red and your car is still in the intersection...we call that running an orange light. Farm Original Variety!"
