85 days. OP. A long, tapered, medium to thick walled, purple sweet pepper. Later to produce, but productive and well worth the wait. It starts out purple and changes to fully red when ripe and at its sweetest. It turns several sunset colors all at the same time along the way. When fully red the flavor is out of this world. I have been trying to figure out how to describe the flavor that would do it justice, but all I can come up with is 'candy flavored'. It is more than just sweet. It needs a long season and plenty of heat to develop the flavor, but is definitely worth it. The best flavored sweet pepper I have ever eaten. I can only imagine how amazing it would be roasted because my kids eat them all up before I get the chance to roast any. Tall, healthy bush is very productive and needs support.
