Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

This is another pepper that grows exceptionally well when planted with tomatoes. It's easy to grow--I usually just plant the seeds directly into the garden when I set my tomatoes out. Its thick walled flesh is great for stuffing and it has the mild flavor my wife and I prefer in any kind of salad. It's also terrific on Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches (when cooked with onions of course) or raw on roast beef or turkey sandwiches (if sliced thin). I grow these at an elevation of 3750' in NW AZ, so they need shade during our hot summers--the tomatoes help a lot in that regard. If they aren't shaded the peppers will scald.
