In January of 2017, I attended a seed swap at Detroit Home & Garden in Ann Arbor, MI. There weren't a ton of 'vendors' present but one guy stood out, mostly because of his heavy accent. He was obviously a passionate seed saver, as he had many handwritten packages of seeds proudly spread out in front of him. This is where I came to acquire this variety, from that Romanian gentleman. I really did try to get more information about it but there was a definite language barrier and all he could excitedly say (mostly with his hands) was that this was 'his heirloom from home.'
Glossy red, thick-walled, fruits are crunchy and super sweet! SO much more productive and much quicker to ripen than any standard bell pepper. A must try!
