4150- Renegade. Early, predominantly red and blocky peppers, occasional yellow pepper, all selected for great flavour. 62-75 days to maturity. In Ottawa with early June planting I can harvest ripe red peppers in early to mid August
These peppers are among the earliest bells to ripen on the market. Renegade Red is genetically diverse and not completely uniform and so retains the potential to further adapt to your garden or farm if you wish to save the seeds. Every now and then someone, somewhere, will get a surprise yellow pepper plant growing within the population, equally early. Some variation in shape remains, though the majority of fruits are blocky shaped. We're currently working on stabilizing a uniform strain of early, blocky yellow peppers to be released in the near future. Bred and selected cooperatively, in and for organic growing systems, by 4 farmers across Ontario - Greta Kryger, Rebecca Ivanoff Annie Richard and Kim Delaney - with the support of Cornell University's Michael Mazourek and the Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario’s Farmer-led Research Program. We have pledged this variety with OSSI.
