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? 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.

Review:

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.

What are the pros? taste, huge size, bears well

What are the cons? hard to grow straight

Review:

This is a great pepper I've grown every year for a few years now. I grow many different pepper varieties every year and I can always count on this one making it through to the end. It is by far the largest pepper I grow. The fruit on these are huge. Early growth on this pepper plant is important because if the plant doesn't get tall enough, the fruit it produces won't grow straight because they'll run into the ground and curve. It has an excellent taste as well, though watch out because it's also a pepper with a lot of juice - and that red juice will stain. Yield from these plants is also very good. The plants, despite the humongous size of the peppers, are often sturdy enough to stand without support. This is an amazing pepper that belongs in every garden where the grower loves sweet peppers. Stuffing may be difficult with this pepper because the large size often leads to a somewhat collapsed form (rather than a round interior you get more of an oval).
