The picture above gives you a decent representation of what you get when you grow this pepper. Variable size and shape fruit that turn yellow, but not uniformly so. In 2009, we had fewer fruit, but the fruit were giants (and much rounder). We suspect these plants would be stars in a personal garden, where every plant is in thick organic mulches (cut grass, etc) and the gardener gives them a certain amount of water every week. They are 'tough enough' for our farm as well, but market quality fruit runs at 2 to 4 per plant. That's not bad for a colored bell. Fruits progress from large to smaller as the season continues. Great taste, thick walled, four lobed fruit. In some ways, Quadrato is on a curve similar to Wisconsin Lakes - next year could be fantastic.
Golden Treasure is one of our all-time favorite peppers. This is one of the best sweet peppers we grow for use on sandwiches. It adds a nice color and taste to salsa/pico. Each plant tends to produce about 14 marketable fruit. This year was an off year due to their location, but they still fought through circumstances to produce nearly 8 per plant. Response to the high tunnel was favorable, but we're not sure the benefit is sufficient to use the space on this variety - they usually do nearly as well in the field.
An excellent tasting green or red bell pepper. Tends to be longer than many bells and can reach extraordinary sizes under certain conditions. We expect about 6-7 marketable fruit per plant. Tends to favor warmer summers more than King of the North.
Because They're Different
Garden Sunshine has a neat color and the peppers hold very well on the plant for a long time. Our first bit of learning on these was that you want to pick them for best flavor when they have at least a little orangish/rust tinting to the pale yellow fruit. If they are greenish-yellow, they'll be fine, but not that good for taste. Plants are small. Production numbers are low (4.1) in large part because they seem to be susceptible to fruit blights and rots. They have a hint of paprika in their taste. Our suspicion is that they would prefer a drier climate.
