The Large Red Cherry Pepper has been a staple in American gardens since the mid-1800s. Tall plants set fruit continuously throughout the season, ripening from vivid green to maraschino red. With smooth, thick skin and sweet flavor, this adorable 1"-2" mini pepper is the perfect size and texture for pickling, canning, skewering, or stuffing with a cube of mozzarella to roast or grill.
