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? 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.

What are the cons? Didn't germinate

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.

Favorite Sweet Pepper
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Sweet, thick walled and huge

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

This is my favorite sweet pepper. They grow to be very large and they're thick walled, juicy and flavorful at any stage. Once they turn red, they are the best! Stir fry, fajitas, sliced in salads or added to any dish you'd use peppers in, they're terrific. Due to their size, a single pepper goes a long way.

What are the pros? Very tasty

What are the cons? none

Review:

They had a slow start and our very hot weather kind of slowed them down but now they are going great since it cooled off some. I smoked some and put them in the freezer. I like them on a sandwich after they are smoked. Very hardy strong plant.
