Characteristics of Plant
Like Sweet Bell peppers? Yum Yum while classified has a sweet has a bit of a pungent taste to it. It looks just like a bell pepper only a bit on the thinner side.

The walls are thick and crunchy and there are hardly any seeds at all. A nice pepper to eat as a snack for children and adults alike.

These hardy plants, produce lots of multicolored pods that turn yellow, orange to red. Pods are 3-4" long and about 2" wide. Pods can be eaten in any color.

They are good for stuffing, excellent for grilling as they provide flavor, but won't heat up your guests taste buds. They make a great snack anytime and hold up well in lunchboxes. Well liked by children.
