Pepper Renegade

 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.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
