Great bell pepper. As the previous poster indicated, our peppers were smaller than store bought. However the flavor is sublime. Easy to grow and prolific. We recommend this pepper highly.
Grew 7 of these last year in Southeast PA. I was picking peppers like mad! None of them got really big, but there were more than enough to make up from their medium size. This year, I went with seedlings from a local nursery, and I was disappointed in their production (different variety). I'll be getting more King of the North this winter to start indoors. Recommended.
