Thomas Jefferson grew this bull-nosed pepper in his garden after it arrived here from India in the 1700s. Bull Nosed peppers, popular in early America, are due for a renaissance. Still grown at Jefferson's Monticello, the variety has a delectably mild, sweet taste and thick walls. Can be enjoyed raw, cooked or pickled. Fruits ripen from dark green to red and can be harvested 60-80 days from transplant.
