An African American heirloom that was popular in the Chesapeake Bay area in the 1900’s, used especially for seafood recipes. This is a stunning plant, with variegated green and white leaves and peppers that are striped in a rainbow of colors. The compact stature lends well to container planting. Medium hot. 80 days from transplanting.
Linda Enerson, the farmer/owner of Ox and Robin, has been working with heirloom and rare seeds since 2011. After joining Seed Savers Exchange, a worldwide network of seed savers, she was hooked on exploring and preserving the wonderful qualities of heirloom vegetable and herb varieties, many of which surpass commonly available food crops in taste, disease resistance and aesthetic appeal.
In addition to raising crops, she also trains the oxen used as the main power source on the farm. Linda also creates the watercolor/collage artwork for every Ox and Robin seed label.
