Amish Pimiento Pimiento Pepper - Sustainably Grown


Amish Pimiento Pimiento Pepper - Sustainably Grown

Capsicum annuum
(85 days) Open-pollinated. Pimientos are the sweetest of all peppers—everybody’s favorite for eating out of hand—and Amish rises to the top of that sweetness scale. The problem with growing seed for Amish Pimiento is that you have to restrain yourself from eating the seed crop. Blame it on the rich sweet fruity taste of these 2x4" squat ribbed fleshy red fruits, productive and fairly early, thick-walled and crunchy.

Additional Information


Days to full-color maturity are from transplanting date.

Capsicum comes from the Greek kapto which means ‘bite.’

Culture: Start indoors in March or April. Minimum germination soil temperature 60°, optimal range 68-95°. Set out in June. Very tender, will not tolerate frost, dislike wind, will not set fruit in cold or extremely hot temperatures or in drought conditions. Black plastic highly recommended. Row cover improves fruit set in windy spots. Pick first green peppers when they reach full size to increase total yield significantly. Green peppers, though edible, are not ripe. Peppers ripen to red, yellow, orange, etc.

Saving Seed: Saving pepper seed is easy! Remove core of the fully ripe pepper (usually red or orange) and dry on a coffee filter. When dry, rake seeds off the core with a butter knife. To ensure true-to-type seed, grow open- pollinated varieties and separate by 30 feet. Use only the first fruits for seed; allow only 3–4 fruits per plant to grow and remove all others. Fewer fruits = larger seeds = greater seed viability. Later fruits often have germination rates of only 60%.
