Yum Yum Gold Pepper

Yum Yum Gold Pepper


55 days. There couldn't be a more appropriate name for these remarkable little sweet peppers. The baby elongated bells are superb for salads, hors d'oeuvres, and shish kebabs. A minimal seed cluster makes them an unbeatable, straight-off-the-plant, snacking pepper. Stout plants are very productive, packing on lots of green, 1 inch wide by 2 1/2 inch long fruits that ripen to a sunny gold.
Also available as a plant.

This is hands-down our favorite sweet pepper! The plants are productive and the fruit is incredibly sweet and crisp. My daughter and I fight over them - most never make it out of the garden!
I'm in love

Pacific Northwest zone 7. Sweetest pepper I've ever grown by a wide margin. Dozens of peppers per plant starting in August. Can't put enough emphasis on how great these are. Never had trouble before keeping myself from just eating peppers as I harvest, but these were on the level of sweetness in a good cherry tomato. Not an obsessional pepper grower, but done a good few varieties. To be honest, more hot than sweet. To be fair, never grown the Jimmy Nardellos where I hear do much on the sweetness, but compared to a normal bell, these are candy.
Very sweet

I grew these last year for the first time. These might be the sweetest peppers I have ever tasted. Colors ranged from yellow to orange to red. Yum yum.
A Disappointment

I'm not sure what happened, but instead of little gold-colored peppers, the plants all yielded little bright red peppers that didn't have much flavor. Territorial Seed was quick to issue a full refund when I brought it to their attention. I will stick with heirloom pepper varieties from now on.
