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!

Fast Germination. 100% Germination Success with Order of 10.

These were some of my biggest germination success stories, along with the other spicy peppers I ordered. The roots grew very dense and very fast, and all seeds purchased germinated, which is often uncommon. I am very happy with how these turned out, and I can't wait until I get this big guy settled in the soil.

Great Service

I enjoyed absolutely everything from the selection to the prompt shipping. This is how I wish all businesses acted!

First time growing

So far so good. These seeds took off and are some sturdy little guys. Can’t wait to see how they turn out. I know after last years experience with the peppers I got pepper joes will be the only place I get my seeds from now on. Love you guys and all the help you have provided. Thank you!
