This heirloom pepper deserves to be called Chinese Giant Pepper as it is one of the bigger bell peppers! This was the first bell pepper of the truly giant bell peppers. Introduced in the 1900s, it was twice as big as the largest bell pepper of its day.

The Chinese Giant pepper plant may be compact (reaching 2 ft. tall), but it produces large, nearly squared, thick-walled bell peppers that grow to 4-6 inches long. Ripening from dark green to a bright cherry-red color, this is an amazingly sweet pepper that can be harvested at either stage. The plant is an early producer, has excellent yields, and is a midseason type that’s perfect for the home gardener!

With its uniformly large and blocky bell shape, the Chinese Giant is great for stuffed peppers but is also great for salads, stuffing, or stir-fries. This is a must-have sweet bell pepper for your garden!
