(Capsicum annuum) This heirloom has the exact amount of hotness and bright-red color to make perfect, pickled peppers, Kimchi, stir-fry, and pepper-flakes. If you have tried making Kimchi or cooked dishes but couldn't get the right balance of heat, flavor, and rich color, try this. The real greatness of this pepper is in its earliness to turn red in cool conditions and its enormous yields. No, really. So many peppers you won't know what to do with all of them. Dries easily.
Peppers can be grown all year long in containers. It is suitable for apartment dwellers and gardeners who live in cool regions where the number of growing days are limited. All peppers are perennials, and make nice house-plants if grown in potting soil in 2-3 gallon pots, and taken indoors when the nights drop into the 40s.
