(Capsicum annuum)
‘Mama Mia Giallo’

Pepper candy anyone? Divinely sweet, delectably juicy! The shiny skins on these rich tasting, meaty peppers are a breeze to remove, making it the consummate roaster terrific for grilling and delectable right off the vine! Since it ripens sooner than many Capsicums you can get your sweet fix earlier in the season! (About 70 days till ripening). The long (6-9”) tapered pods are most definitely eye candy as well, practically glowing amidst the leaves. Best of all, it is outrageously easy to grow - just use rich well-draining soil, keep it from drying out and viola, 25+ bodacious peppers reward you! Try it in a container for a festive and impressive patio plant, or grow several in your garden so you can spread the wealth. The bees and pollinators will love you!
