These heritage sweet peppers were introduced into North America in 1759 from India and are still grown at Monticello (and Mount Vernon!) today. Named after an indentation on the non-stem end that resembles a bull's nose, they are smaller than modern bell peppers. They boast an excellent flavor that combines sweetness with a touch of spice.
