80 days. A late Italian pepper that yields big 7-inch long tapering fruit; very sweet and great for frying or fresh!

What are the pros? Sweet taste

What are the cons? All peppers hard to germinate

Review:

These peppers are so sweet and delicious! Forget growing and other sweet reds, there isn't any need,better then bells. I find when I grow more, planted closer together I get a better yeild. After harvesting place in plastic produce bag in fridge to keep away from air and they will last much longer. They r hard 2 germinate just like most peppers. I read in a study that there is less success w/germination when using Peet ,it's a PH thing..so use a potting soil. Also needs heat to germinte, I put it on the laptop as I was playing on computer but I'm sure a heating mat would be optimal. I had some blosso end rot this year bc it was hot with little to no rain so there was uneven watering which messes up calcium uptake, therefore bloom end rot, just like ur Tom's and zukes. An old guy friend gave us some of his homegrown sweet ital.reds this yr (he gets the seeds from his family in italy)..they were thin walled and very little flavor, next yr I will give him some seedlings I germinte, lol.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, come up quick

What are the cons? Too long to ripen

Review:

This is the first year growing these. The peppers in my containers did better than the ones in the raised bed. I only got 2-3 per plant and expected more. It's early September and they still aren't ripe. On the fence if I'll try these next year.

What are the pros? Prolific, good flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

We had an incredibly soggy June and it didn't seem to phase these at all while some of my other varieties seemed to slow down during the month. The large plants were absolutely smothered with peppers starting to turn red by early August. Very sweet flavor and not too tough of skin so that it goes well raw in salads, fried with sausage, or dotted on a pizza. Definitely would recommend. Grown in raised beds. Organic compost, seaweed emulsion, and fish emulsion used as feed. No pests observed.

Review:

I was so excited for these peppers, but none germinated (2013). Was only my second year starting from seed, so possibly was user error. Haven't tried again yet.

What are the pros? Good flavor

What are the cons? Very late. Diseases

Review:

I bought this to compare to my favorite the corno di toro. The pepper ended up ripening very late compared to my cdt's. So late in fact my cdt's produced 2/3 batches to one of these. The plants stalks are also not as strong as my cdt's and needed more bracing even though the peppers were of the same size. These also seemed to get black spot easy compared to my cdt's (maybe cause slightly softer flesh?). Overall these taste just like corno di torros but with a smaller yield and less disease resistance. Go with Corno di torros and skip this one.
