Description

This miniature, golden-yellow pepper is a pre-1900 family heirloom from the Doe Hill area of Highland County, Virginia.  The fruits are small and thick-walled, with a sweet, mild flavor when ripe.  Doe Hill Pepper matures early and continues producing until the end of summer.  The charming peppers resemble miniature pumpkins or persimmons.

Sow seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost date, transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then transplant outdoors 2-4 weeks after last frost.  Pepper plants prefer warm soils for germination and growth.  Approximately 20 seeds per packet.
