NEW - I first received seed for this great pepper 15 years ago, so I am so excited to get it into the catalog! This small pepper was collected in 1988 in Nicaragua from a farmer. It produces small 4" peppers that are fragrant and richly flavored; these have strong pepper flavor making them perfect for a variety of dishes. Fruit is green turning to red as they ripen.

What are the pros? shape

What are the cons? none

Review:

I wanted to write one further comment on this pepper. The shape of the fruit is a little like an over sized habenaro, although it is absolutely sweet with no hotness at all. The fruit is deeply ridged and pleated to a degree that is seldom seen. It occurred to me that it might be C. chinense not C. annuum because sweet forms are known in both species of pepper. Using DeWitt and Bosland's book on pepper identification, it looks like it is just the familiar C. annuum species. The flowers are white, unspotted, and solitary and the filaments are tan. Hybrids are known between C. annuum and C. chinense but the identifying traits are absolutely consistent with C. annuum.

What are the pros? shape and taste of pepper

What are the cons? relatively thin walled

Review:

The flavor is excellent; productivity is comparable to hybrids; fruit shape is novel and unusual; it is very early in the Willamette Valley of Oregon with its cool nights. Of the 10 or so varieties of sweet pepper that I am growing, only Jimmy Nardello's Sweet Italian was earlier. Perhaps my only criticism is that the pepper is a little bit thin walled, although the overall fruit size is medium to large in size. I would highly recommend this variety.

good pepper so far

What are the pros? interesting shaped fruits

What are the cons? none

Review:

I just started growing this variety. Since there are no other reviews at this time, I thought I should post an early report on this pepper. So far it has been quite prolific. It has as many peppers on the plant as my hybrid peppers and the fruits appear to be at a more mature size and state of ripening. I haven't tasted them yet but I will report back once I have completed the season. The most interesting thing about this pepper so far is the shape of the fruits. They have a deep indentation on each fruit and are shaped in an unusual manner.
