Description
Royal King
(Bell Type)

73 days — 'Royal King' is a large sized, bell-type, pepper with semi-elongated fruit that is bright and glossy turning from green to red at full maturity. The flesh is thick and mild. Its plants are strong, stocky, and erect. Originally introduced by the H. G. Hasting's Seed Company of Atlanta, Georgia, here is how they describe it in their 1932 catalog:
"Introduced by us in 1917. While it is a superb sweet Pepper for home and market use we want to especially call the attention of the trucker or shipping market gardener to its regularity of size and shape, making it an exceptionally desirable variety for good packing and fine appearance on arrival in the markets. This will insure its being a top price seller at all times.

It is very prolific, bright and glossy, of large size; the flesh is mild and thick and the lobes well filled out. It runs remarkably true to type and uniformity of size for a Pepper, and the plants are of strong, stocky, erect growth. It is a native Southern Pepper, originating right here in Georgia, and has made good from the start. Taste it raw, stuff it with meat and bake it and fill it with salads for the table; we believe you will agree that it is the bell type Pepper you have been looking for.
"
Our 'Royal King' bell pepper seeds are grown for us in Middle Tennessee by David Pendergrass. Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 30 seeds.
