Ajvarski, Sweet Pepper

80 days--Here's a really outstanding roasting pepper from eastern Macedonia. Two-foot, stocky plants are covered in 6- to 7-inch, broadly wedge-shaped pods that ripen green to deep, rich red. These peppers are incredible. When you grow them in certain soils, on a hot day, you can smell them on the plant from 10 feet away. They make all other sweet peppers seem bland. And when you throw half a dozen on your grill, everybody in your neighborhood will smell them! These thick-fleshed traditional peppers are roasted on flat metal stoves, peeled, then ground into a traditional relish called ajvar, which is eaten spread on bread, often with sirenje, a local cheese similar to feta. Nearly every rural household puts up a supply of ajvar for winter eating. In autumn, Macedonians flock to the markets in fertile valleys in the East to buy bushels of the best aromatic roasting peppers from the local villages there, which is where the original seed came from, a gift from the students in the villages of Kalugeritsa and Zleovo.

Review:

I grew these over the hottest, driest Florida summer and they were super productive surpassing all other sweet peppers. Taste and shelf life is incredible.

Review:

I've grown ~50 of the supposedly best sweet peppers from around the world, including many of the Italian heirlooms. This is THE best general purpose sweet pepper I have ever grown and is now the only one I grow. These things are off the charts when thrown on the grill.
