Keystone resistant giant

I bought a few pepper plants this year called keystone resistant giant.  I've been searching, trying to find out what keystone is, and I can't find anything about it: just advertisements for keystone peppers or keystone resistant giant.  Does anybody know what it is?

    Mike. Keystone Giant Peppers are grown from American seeds so maybe Keystone is a branded name.

    From what I've seen so far, it sounds like it is, but what would the "resistant" part be about?  It sounds like keystone is some kind of blight or something.

    Well I didn't read it like that. The 'resistant' to me just means it can hold out against some of the viruses that Peppers are prone to.

    mosaic resistant

    I found that with the aid of my friend Mr Google.

    Mr Google didn't help me much.  So what, keystone is mosaic virus: or keystone is the name and it's resistant to mosaic virus?  And thank you both.

    the latter. Not a very good name imo, doesn't make itself clear.

    Yeah, they could've done better.  Thank you.
