Bell Pepper - Wally One
Bell Pepper - Wally One
This bell pepper grows on compact plants which produce a bountiful yield of deep-purple peppers following a gorgeous display of small bright lavender flowers. Their mild, sweet flavor and unique color make them a perfect addition to a salad or stuffed pepper dish. Initially a novelty plant due to the unusual pepper color, deep purple bell peppers are now prized for their antioxidants and other healthful components. These peppers turn purple on the plant during an intermediate phase between green and red, lasting only about seven to ten days.
