The name of these peppers derives from their distinctive yellow color and long pointy shape, though they can reach lovely orange and red hues if left to ripen long enough. Regardless of the color you eat them at, these peppers are crisp, tangy and sweet, not spicy, like some think. In fact, though they are a member of the chili family, they are five times milder than the mildest jalapeño pepper. So, no sweat. Because they have very hearty walls, they’re well-suited to both pickling and stuffing. Pickled, they go great on pizza, in salads, and on sandwiches. Or stuff them with ground meat and bread crumbs or seasoned rice and cheese for a delicious meal.

Female-owned and operated, founder Malaika Spencer fell in love with farming early on in life, and dedicated herself to learning how to restore overworked land and ecosystems while providing the most nutrient dense produce possible. Because of this, Roots to River Farm aims to transcend the economic, ecological and cultural devastation created by the industrial agriculture system by providing high quality certified organic produce directly to its local community. They believe that good farming is a public service, and want to provide a product that is of the highest quality, the most nutritious, beautiful and affordable while also offering a connection between consumers and the farm. In addition to being certified organic they utilize resilient agricultural techniques such as reduced-tillage, intensive cover cropping, integrated pest management, occultation, contour tillage, and organic compost applications to create a farm that provides the community with incredible food while also nurtures the soil and ecology of our farm and the people who work there.
