Grower launches new pepper variety grown in Florida

J&J Family of Farms is pleased to announce a new, one of a kind pepper variety: Sunny Sweet Peppers.

The company said the peppers are like no other sweet pepper in its category, having a much sweeter taste than mini sweet peppers due to their higher BRIX. The proprietary field-grown variety pepper also has a very small seed cavity located at the very top of the pod, making it easier to enjoy as a bite size snack, easily stuffed, or cut up in a salad.

“We really wanted the packaging to reflect the true uniqueness of this pepper by creating a fun brand that will make an impact among our customers and their consumers,” said Angela Gamiotea, Marketing Manager. “We are excited to introduce this new Sunny Sweet brand, as this is just a glimpse of what’s to come in terms of product innovation at J&J Family of Farms.”

Sunny Sweet Peppers are currently grown only in Florida and J&J is harvesting through the entire Florida growing season. Because of the tremendous response from our customers, year-round production planning of this exciting new product is underway. The peppers are currently all yellow, but next year J&J is looking to provide other colors such as red and orange. Sunny Sweet Peppers are available in a 1lb. resealable bag.

“With the mini sweet pepper category growing in retail, we are thrilled to offer a product that isn’t in the marketplace yet,” said Lynn Rundle, Chairman and CEO. “Our growers also love it, because it has a great yield and grows beautifully on the plant. We are confident that once consumers taste this pepper, they will want to get their hands on it.”

If you are interested in sampling or purchasing the new Sunny Sweet Peppers, please contact us at 561.422.9777. Check out the new Sunny Sweet Peppers in booth 200 at Southern Exposure.
