Pepper (Sweet) - Emerald Giant

$199 USD

The Emerald Giant Pepper may not be your first precious gem, but it could become your favorite in the garden after you polish off a few. Large 4"-5", blocky, thick-skinned fruits dangle like pendants on vigorous, drought-tolerant plants. As it catches the light, the color matures from emerald to citrine to ruby. And its juicy, crispy, sweet, and mild facets make any recipe shine with delicious brilliance.
