A kaleidoscope of elongated fruits beginning lime green ripening to golden yellow, orange and finally red. Sweet, horn-shaped, thick-walled fruits average between 4 - 8 inches in length. One of my favorite sweet peppers not only for flavor but for its productiveness!
I requested this variety from the USDA Seed Bank (GRIN - GRIF 1552) in 2013. Research uncovered that this is an old commercial variety from Bulgaria of which a Plant Protection Patent was granted for between 1962 and 1995, with the potential of it having received a second PPP after the first one expired. In either case, the PPP is now expired.
