“Bob’s Pickling” pepper has an obscure background. My seed packet is a vendor’s packet, but I do not see it listed on the site anymore, and the packet was given in a trade. Hence, I have no history or other information.
This is indeed a great choice for pickling though. The flesh is thick and sweet and has no heat…except for the placenta ribs and the seeds. Those will tingle your tongue. You can pickle them whole and probably get some heat, or cut in half and pickle without the seeds for sweet pepper pickles.
And I have to mention the productivity! I have one poor plant that has been living in a 3 gallon pot for the past 8 months. I have fed it with liquid fertilizer twice…so it is rather neglected. Despite this shoddy care, Bob’s Pickling has pumped out three separate fruit settings, and each setting loaded the plant with fruit so that it looked like it was a Christmas tree decorated with shiny red ornaments. This is a VERY productive pepper, and can be grown in just about any setting.
The coin in the photo is a Susan B. Anthony “silver” dollar, so that is similar to a US quarter in size, maybe a tad smaller. Most of the fruits are 2 inches long.
