Has anyone grown this pepper?
I believe it's a sweet pepper, but wondering if it's at all spicy.

Hummm....didn’t find it in Chileman’s.

Anyway, I haven’t grown it, but it appears to be one of several (5?) mostly stable (F6) derivatives of an old F1 hybrid named La Paris. It was developed by Frank Morton, who is a master seedsman at Wild Garden Seed. I believe the correct name is “Joelene’s Rustic Italian”, named after Joelene Jebbia, who asked Frank to develop a replacement for La Paris originally.

By the way, now you‘ve got me intrigued lol. I’ve ordered several of these varieties and should have a few seeds to spare. If you’d like some Ruthz, send me an e-mail.

Thanks for asking about this one! Looks interesting.
