Product Description

We are excited to celebrate the work of William Woys Weaver with this release of our first variety from his Roughwood Seed Collection. Pippin's Golden Honey Pepper comes from seed collector and artist Horace Pippin, who was a personal friend of Weaver's grandfather. This pepper dazzles with purple flowers with pendant fruit on 24 inch plants. 3 to 3 inch pods ripen from black (with green interiors) to honey-mustard, and then to golden orange. Sweet flavor with very thin flesh ideal for stuffing or pickling. A potted plant makes a great edible decoration for summer gatherings.
