The Pepper Sweet Pimiento, 'Capsicum annuum', is a sweet, juicy, aromatic, scarlet pepper with very mild flavor. The Pimiento is excellent for stuffing or pickling and fresh in salads. This pepper provides the familiar red "plug" in green olives. Pimiento peppers are excellent pickled and delicious when used for stuffed appetizers. For delightful crunch and beautiful color, add chopped fresh pimientos to salads such as pasta, potato, chicken, tuna or egg salad. Pimientos are green, smooth, heart-shaped, thick walled and they turn bright red at maturity.

Transplant outside in the spring 3 to 4 weeks after last frost date. Note: To get a jump on the season transplant outside, use a walls-of-water or some black plastic to maintain and increase temperatures. Plant in average garden soil with sufficient organic matter. Peppers use quite a bit of water but prefer to be watered deeply and not too often.
