- Mid-early, small thin-walled glossy and wrinkled peppers that mature from green to brown and then to red. Fruits are 3-4" long and 1" in diameter, wavy and wrinkled, with blunt end. Some pods look like the famous Peter Pepper. Plants are compact and branching, with small leaves. High yields. Mild delicious sweet flavor which is even more enhanced when it is cooked.
