Pippin's Golden Honey Pepper 10 Seeds

Details

A multicolored sweet pepper and a beloved heirloom of the Philadelphia African American community of the early1900s. A delightfully ornamental sweet pepper that features purple flowers and fruit that transforms from dark purple, to mustard yellow and finally to a vibrant orange as it ripens. We can thank Philadelphia folk artist Horrace Pippin for this extraordinary pepper, as he shared his seeds with William Woys Weaver’s grandfather in the early 1940’s. History remembers Pippin as the first African American painter to be known for expressing his concern about war and social injustices in the themes of his art. His right arm was badly injured in battle during his service in WWI, and as the story goes, Pippin sought out bee sting therapy to alleviate his suffering. H. Ralf Weaver exchanged stings from his hive of bees with Pippin for the seeds of this pepper and other heirlooms that Pippin had collected. These heirlooms are considered heritage varieties of an African American community of the mid-Atlantic during Pippin’s time. A very rare and unique variety.
