Used much like a red bell pepper, fruits are very large and sweet. Flesh is thick, crisp and juicy. Pods matures from dark green to a bright red, and grows an average of 6 inches tall and 4 inches wide, roughly the size of one’s hand. 

 

Fully mature pods are almost flat, with a slight indentation down the middle from the inner ribs. The shape is very similar to that of an elephant’s ear, hence the name.  Within the walls of the pepper is a relatively large placenta with very few seeds.

 

Native to Serbia, though it having its origins in South America it is grown throughout the region known to some as the Balkan Peninsula, which includes: Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Albania, Bosnia and other countries that were once part of the former Yugoslavia.

 

Widely used in a traditional Serbian preserve called ajvar. In Croatia, the pepper is called 'Slonovo Uvo'.

 

Highly resistant to diseases such as TMV (Tobacco Mosaic Virus).

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!

      ALL PLANTS ARE 100% ORGANIC - GUARANTEED!
