Year grown: 2009
- indeterminate, regular leafed plants. (75 days). Plants usually grow tall. best to stake or tall cage. Fruits are hollow and bell pepper shaped (Super puff gene). Flesh and predominate color is red with yellow stripes to the skin (green stripe gene). Generally around the size of a baseball. Flesh is dry and very bland. Sometimes some green persists on shoulders.
- More about presentation than eating alone. Still a better choice for flavor when choosing a stuffer than Yellow Stuffer. Generated lots of interest at the Farmers Market but few repeat buyers. Sold better to Chefs who used fresh in presentations. If cooked too long the walls collapse and do not hold the contents well. Better to fill with precooked stuffing (if necessary) and broil quickly (top heat) to brown the top of stuffing material than to bake so that they hold their shape and plate well.
Year: 2001 (?)
- This plant contains the dominant gene for puffiness called "Superpuff" and designated Spf.
