Pimentos are sweet, succulent, aromatic, and one of our favorites! Fresh from the garden they can be used in the making of pimento cheese or stuffed to be served as an appetizer. An easy way to serve them is cut off the top of the pepper and remove the seeds. Stuff with a bit of fresh mozzarella and brush with olive oil. Grill until the peppers begin to soften and the cheese starts to melt. 

Expect heavy yields of large thick walled 4-1/2" long by 3" wide sweet peppers that will turn from green to red when mature. These easy to grow plants will reach 24” high. Capsicum annuum (85 days) Heirloom - open-pollinated

Heat Level: None - Sweet Pepper

~ Packet contains 10 seeds. 

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 24” apart or into large 3 gallon containers. Harvest when full size.


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

Pimento Peppers

Still early, but the seeds showed up on time, looked great. Germinated at just about 100%. I transplanted the peppers a few weeks ago and recently topped them. Should be putting off peppers soon but all is going well!

Good and sweet

My favorite pepper to grow for making fresh paprika powder. Great seeds, 9 out of the 10 sprouted. Will grow again.
