This Italian heirloom produces tasty, blood red, round pimento-type peppers that are very sweet. The flesh is very thick and crisp. Short, compact plants produce huge yields; great fresh or cooked. A wonderful specialty variety that has many uses.

What are the pros? flavor, thick walled

What are the cons? Low output

Review:

The plant was very strong and grew to about 4' tall. However, it produced very few peppers and the ones it did produce took a very long time to ripen. They tasted great and had great thick walls, but in the end they produced too little too late for me to grow them again. pepper on plant: https://www.instagram.com/p/7NUn6piEdO/

Review:

This pepper was a little later coming on than the other 50 types we grew. But, what a crowd favorite. Excellent stuffer and great eye appeal. Highly recommend. Very sweet and the walls are thick and this one sits flat so it is great for stuffing. Makes great pepper jelly too. Go for it!

Review:

We grew the Topepo Rosso in Spartanburg, SC (Zone 7) this year with much success. I started the seeds indoors on Jan. 29 and had peppers appearing by the end of July. Each very compact plant has produced prolifically in tight confines (I have 6 plants growing less than 6" apart in a homemade SIP made from an 18 gallon tote) with no maintenance issues. The peppers themselves are crisp and medium-sized, great for single-servings.

What are the pros? Very tasty and prolific

What are the cons? Takes a while to ripen

Review:

These are an annual pepper for me! This will be season 4 (2015), and probably will never find a pepper to replace them. Excellent flavor, thick walled, juicy, moderately sweet, and sometimes just the tiniest hint of "zing." The plants tend to be small, about 18" to 24" high, but can often have 4 or 5 peppers on them, so they MUST be staked. Start indoors a couple of weeks earlier than other peppers to make sure they ripen before it gets too cool in the late summer/early fall for proper ripening to happen. ALSO, you might not want to wait for them to turn completely red on the plant, pick with just a hint of green, then allow 1 or 2 days of ripening in a paper bag indoors. The completely plant-ripened peppers were often moldy inside.

What are the pros? Very pretty peppers

What are the cons? None

Review:

This plant produces very pretty peppers that are very thick and juicy. This a very nice pepper to have in the garden. The plants are compact and seem to have good disease resistance. I really like the look of the peppers. They have very nice color and thick juicy flesh while not being too crunchy. Taste is superb (way better than a bell pepper). Highly recommended. Comparable to the red cheese pepper.
