Peter Piper would love to pick a peck of these sweet, small peppers for his pickled peppers! Delicious fresh in salads, stuffed for an appetizer, and ideal for canning and pickling. The cherry-tomato-sized peppers can be eaten green or ripened to a brilliant red for full flavor. Grows well in containers.
