This variety was introduced before 1860. In the 1880's, this pepper was shipped to the large markets in Paris from warmer areas like Algeria and Valencia. In the 19th century the 6-7-inch long fruit were among the largest offered, and popular with cooks. It produces long, cone-shaped peppers that are perfect for frying and salads. They are sweet and flavorful, but hardly ever offered in America. A good-producing pepper that is reported to be disease resistant.

What are the pros? Sweet Taste

What are the cons? none so far

Review:

2015 summer - plants were in 1/2 shade, neglected and destroyed by a puppy. In late summer/ fall had 2 survive - produced enough to slice in veggie trays regularly. 6 yr old son LOVED them. Coming back for more and I'll take care of them this summer ;). Large, sweet peppers - didn't cause burping or stomach upset.

What are the pros? Large size

What are the cons? poor germination

Review:

I would consider my thumb to be a bright shade of green, but when it comes to growing sweet peppers I've never had a whole lot of luck. They never get very large and the flesh tends to be thin. But this pepper was huge, thick, and very flavorful. I tried a few in the ground but the root-knot nematodes got to them. The ones in pots however, grew wonderfully. I have finally found the pepper for me.

What are the pros? Liked the picture.

What are the cons? Not one seed germinated

Review:

I bought three other peppers from Bakers this year, and planted all of them under grow lights. I did not get one plant, while the others were more like 75%. I was looking forward to these, as I grill peppers, and make sauce. I will have to buy some this year, which I was hoping to avoid.

Best sweet pepper I have ever grown. Huge yields in late summer and early fall. I shade mine during dog days for best fruits. Sweet and big. I roast extra yield and freeze for use all winter long.

Seemed to be pretty prolific but our season just wasn't long enough for them to turn red. I'll try again this year.
