All Prime Time peppers are packed in fully mechanized, sanitary packing houses. While most peppers are harvested and packed in the field, the benefits of in house packing are substantial. Peppers are washed, graded, and packed in these ultra-modern facilities. Each pepper is individually sized according to weight and size, resulting in the uniform sizing of the highest quality peppers available. Retailers determine whether they want to sell peppers by the each or by the pound. If they elect to sell them by the each, they can be assured that this sizing system gives all consumers the same size pepper at the same cost.
