The Big Jim Pepper is the world’s largest pepper variety, with a fruit that can grow to 14" or longer. Typically in the 6"-10" range, these wide, tapered summer icicles grow on compact plants and ripen from lime green to smoky crimson. Sweet and flavorful with a pleasurable crackle of heat. When roasted or grilled, the thick skin slips off easily, leaving tender, juicy, meaty flesh. If you do grow a Jim that needs a tape measure, fill one full of ham and havarti or crab and cream cheese, and feed your entire family plus a neighbor kid.
