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.
