    Good, productive pepper

    We grow a lot of different varieties of peppers and this one is a workhorse. The plants were good-sized and produced an abundance of peppers, most of which had time to turn red. The peppers were early, which is also a big plus for my Vermont garden. These peppers are much easier to grow than a standard bell pepper. They taste good and are a great all purpose pepper. I highly recommend them and will grow them again.

    Excellent lettuce

    We are very fussy about the lettuce we grow. Every year we trial new varieties of lettuce, and there are very few that we continue to grow. But Edox is one that we loved. It was a delicious and beautiful butterhead. One of my favorites. I highly recommend it. We grew it in the spring and fall, so I'm not sure how well it will hold up during the heat of summer.
