Capsicum annuum

Large Sweet Spanish, Large Bell, Sweet Mountain


The original Bull Nose pepper was popular in early America and was grown by Thomas Jefferson.

Large fruits which can be stuffed and are delicious for frying and salads.

They ripen from green to scarlet with sweet thick flesh.

Harvesting seed

Harvest fruits up to two weeks past edible stage. Cut around the top of the pepper and use the stem as a handle to twist out the core. Use the tip of a knife to flick out the seeds; rinse and dry seeds.

Allow seeds to air-dry on newsprint, coffee filters, or screens for several days. When a test seed can be cleanly snapped in half, seeds are dry enough for storage.

Store seeds in a cool, dry place.
