A delightful Italian heirloom sweet pepper. Elongated fruits taper from blocky shoulders to variable blunt or pointed ends, growing to 7 -8 inches long. They often fruit later than regular bell peppers but taste better. Medium thick flesh and a mild, sweet and juicy flavor. This variety ripens from dark green to a rich scarlet red.
Once they come into production, plants are vigorous and quite productive, requiring little attention. Staking is a must as the fruits do get heavy! Resistant to Potato Virus Y and Tobacco Mosaic virus.
Great for fresh use and one of the best frying peppers you will find.
