Edible Spotlight: Pretty N Sweet Pepper

The All-America Selections singles out this pepper as an award winner. Pepper Pretty N Sweet is the 2015 AAS vegetable award winner. They were so impressed with this pepper’s great taste and ornamental value they dubbed a new name for it: “Ornamedible.” This sweet, compact, multi-color pepper looks great in the garden and in containers and while you are working on your garden, you can snap off one or two peppers for lunch or dinner.
