Picturing a doe on a hill conjures up an image as sweet and adorable as this pepper. Resembling a miniature pumpkin, these orange peppers are sweet enough to eat raw- which a doe on a hill just might do. This late 1800s family heirloom from the Doe Hill area in Highland County, VA, comes to us via Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, of Mineral, VA. Despite its name, it should be kept free of deer. It's especially attractive to elk, wapiti, moose, caribou, reindeer, mule, and white-tail when it's been picked, topped, de-seeded, stuffed with sage risotto, and placed on a platter on a picnic table al fresco.

How to Grow

Start indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost in very warm spot (80 degrees is ideal). Keep seedlings in a well-ventilated place at 70+ degrees and do not over water. Transplant outdoors into rich soil after threat of frost has passed. Grows 24-30" high and may require staking to keep fruits off the ground. Small, squat green fruits ripen to deep golden orange. Exceptional flavor.
