Capsicum annuum

Suberbly sweet yellow-orange roasting pepper, prolific, early-ripening and decently sunburn resistant.

The story of Gatherer's Gold is a cool one. Breeder Frank Morton was trying to de-hybridize another beloved hybrid red sweet pepper at the request of some market farmers he was working with when out of the dehybridization process came a yellow off-type. He worked with that line separately for years, eventually stabilizing Gatherer's Gold, which is a wonderful prolific roasting pepper with sweet, bright-flavored flesh. Skins are thick enough to roast, but not so thick as to make them too tough for fresh eating. They're also fantastic for frying! 70 days to maturity.

30 seeds.

Seed grown by Greentree Naturals in Sandpoint, Idaho.
