Pimento

73 days — 'Pimento' peppers have been cultivated for centuries. The fruits are heart-shaped, have smooth skin, and reach 3½ inches by 2½ inches. Harvest them when they reach a deep, bright red color but are still firm.

'Pimento' peppers are a standard sweet variety that are tasty, very mild (rating 100 or less Scoville Units), and can be used fresh, pickled, or dried and ground. They are the signature ingredient of "Pimento cheese," which is also known as the "caviar of the South."

If you are a fan of green Spanish olives, then you probably already know that the red bit stuffed into each olive is a piece of 'Pimento'. As a point of fact, they are not merely used for their aesthetic properties or to fill the void left after pitting the olives. Their mild, sweet flavor actually helps to balance the Spanish olive's relatively strong, salty flavor.

Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 30 seeds.
Pimento pepper is good
Tried first time this summer. Got big. Bloomed late by most standards. Still picking day after election in November. Very good. Our normal real weather is cool for most peppers. This year was more crazy than usual. Had week long periods very hot then week long of foggy and under 50 at night. It still produced and well.
