This is a superb heirloom frying pepper brought from Italy years ago. The 4-inch fruit turn brilliant red and start producing very early with flavor that is rich, flavorful, and very sweet. Great fried or fresh, a true Italian variety that seems to have been widely grown in the Chicago area. We have had many requests for this pepper.

A climate too far north

What are the pros? Great flavor

What are the cons? Low yield, late to mature

Review:

Great tasting pepper, if yo can yield more than a few. I started the seeds on time, and the plants looked great going into the garden, but the yield was extremely low and the ripe fruits didn't appear until late September. The weather last summer maybe wasn't ideal for this plant, and I may try it again, but Chicago might be a climate too far north for the Melrose.

What are the pros? thin, fast cooking, tasty

What are the cons? none

Review:

I bought these to have a fast cooking sweet pepper for stir frys and these worked brilliantly. But we (family of 7) liked the taste so much we used them in tomato sauce, on pizza and think they are very tasty raw as well. This has become our primary sweet pepper; we grow more of these then bells now, and will grow many every year. Many pepers on the plants sooner then bells and more flvorful.
