Capsicum annuum. This long season sweet pepper has a lovely flavor with a hint of fruitiness. 2.5 - 3.5" blocky shape, but thinner walls than modern bell peppers. Collected in Merida, Yucatan by a collector who brought it home and planted it in his yard in Laredo, Texas. At three years old, the plant grew to 6 feet tall. (Like all chiles, the plant is frost susceptible and only lives as a perennial in warm regions.) From our Seed-Bank Collection.
