We collected this pepper several years ago in the beautiful, historic mountain town of Antigua, Guatemala, at the city market. The fruit are shaped like a long, tapering bell pepper and are rather refined looking. They are green and turn a bright red, at which stage they are very sweet and highly flavored. The tall plants are very productive. This variety is perfect for farmers markets.

What are the pros? Hearty flavorful healthy plant

What are the cons? Slow to ripen red

Review:

Just now starting to ripen red....that said I started early indoors but not long after transplanting beautiful lush plants some critter decided to eat down 6 of my 7 varieties planted to nearly stalks. So technically they got a late start thanks to trying to grow back. I planted these and a generic bell (from the dollar store I got as a gift) and decided to compare the differences. Green & red sweetness was about the same, cooked they are even better then the generic. Comparing proficiency these Antigua's produced double the fruit as the generic bell (8-12 per plant) the fruit & plants were also much healthier. Absolutely on my re-order list for next year.

Review:

I last grew this pepper in 2011 after I bought seed from Baker Creek. They are VERY tasty and sweet... very good. They are low maintenance. I am just starting to grow sweet peppers again in 2016. I loved snacking on these in the garden in 2011. I have IBS and Celiac Disease so I can only have Red Peppers per my fodmaps diet. I like frying these with steak [since I am not supposed to eat raw fruit or vegetables]. Other friends of mind are vegan so they use them in all sorts of cool ways and cool combinations of salad-type dishes.
