This pepper is my fussy favorite. All the Melrose pepper seedlings died, but my sister managed to grow a few, and gave them to me. Because she is sweet. Both transplants thrived in the garden. Melrose peppers are very sweet, 3-4 inch fruits. The plants were average in fruit production. Like most peppers, the plants are sensitive to heat. The plants didn't take off until the air temperature was over 80 degrees. Production also halted after a week of rainy weather. These plants are very fussy, yet the lovely flavor demands they make the cut for next year's garden.
