In November, 2001 through a connection with Mary Musgrave at University of Massachusetts, the sweet pepper ‘Triton’ was identified. ‘Triton’ is only 20-cm tall, flowers in 25 days, and produces large (~5 to 8 cm long) fruit. We are now characterizing the yield and environmental response of ‘Triton’. Additionally, seed will be collected from mature fruit and will be included in our dwarf seed outreach program run primarily though our web page. We are attempting to find the genetic origin of ‘Triton’.
