Bringing a do-it-yourself approach to plant breeding, four Ontario growers are developing early blocky sweet peppers for their region.
The first time I saw it, I was amazed. It was not a pepper plant. It could only be described as a pepper bush. The plant was 3½-ft (1-m) wide with fat woody stems, abundant foliage, and a heavy crop of perfect orange habanero peppers. It was a two-year-old plant growing in a fifteen-gallon pot.
