A sweet, delicious pepper and beautiful ornamental all in one!
Includes one pot of 'Escamillo' Pepper.
An absolute favorite for its high yield and flavorful fruit, this early-bearing pepper is an all-around winner! With fruit held high off the ground, 'Escamillo' is easy to harvest and less susceptible to rot than varieties with low-hanging fruit. The plant reaches a mature height of 30 inches and 24 inches in width. Its sweet, cone-shaped, golden yellow peppers measure in at 6 to 8 inches long and 2.5 inches wide, and weigh an average of 6 ounces. Small, star-shaped white flowers decorate the plant before the fruit appears amongst its tapered green leaves.

Is this for you?
This early-bearing pepper makes an excellent choice for any home garden. The fruits of 'Escamillo' have an exceptional taste whether eaten raw, sautéed, cooked, or fire roasted, and are as attractive on the plant as they are on the plate.

Enjoy an early harvest and still have time for a summer vacation! A determinate variety, 'Escamillo' is shorter and bushier than most peppers, making it easy to grow in pots or small gardens. This annual will thrive from spring to fall in all zones, reaching maturity within 60 days and bearing green peppers that ripen to yellow within 80 days.

Easily grown in full sun and organically rich, well-drained soil. This drought tolerant plant is low maintenance, requires no pruning, and has no serious insect or disease problems. Peppers thrive in mildly acidic soil, and can benefit from a pinch of Epsom salt added to the soil at planting time.

Can be grown throughout most of the continental U.S. An excellent value and investment in any landscape. **This product cannot ship to the following states and territories AK, HI, PR, VI, GUAM.
