75 days—Pointed, wedge-shaped fruits are purple streaked with pale yellow. We originally received a few seeds of this variety from a Russian seed trader. Ripens red. Very lovely and delicious, sweet, crisp and thick-walled.

My favorite pepper

What are the pros? Beautiful color, so sweet!

What are the cons? long time until ripe

Review:

We will definitely grow these again! These tear drop shaped sweet peppers start yellow, develop beautiful purple streaks, and then ripen through a beautiful sunset orange to a deep ruby red with purple streaks. Just gorgeous! It was like watching a sunset all summer. I was impatient and picked a few in the yellow/purple stage; Don't do this! It will taste bland. Instead, wait until they are a brilliant blood ruby color and the stems break easily off the plant. At this stage they are incredibly sweet! The sweetest peppers I've ever eaten raw. We used a few to make grilled stuffed peppers (cut lengthwise) and I think it was our favorite meal of the summer. I can't say enough great things about these peppers!

What are the pros? Taste, ease to grow, pretty

What are the cons? not a heavy producer

Review:

I grew this - it had great germination and the pepper looks just like the picture - but when I picked it in it's purple yellow streak stage - I thought it didn't taste very good at all!! Next go around I decided to wait until it turns red - WOW what a change - it's now by far my most favorite sweet pepper. I planted late so didn't get very many peppers on the bush so savored each one! It is thick walled and almost tastes like there's some honey drizzled in it when you eat at it's reddest! Highly recommend.

What are the pros? Sweet and mild pepper flavor.

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew this out of curiosity, more than anything and was pleasantly surprised. If eaten in the purple stage, they are very mild flavored. If you wait until they turn red, they develop a very sweet flavor. I would often pick one straight off the bush and start munching on it on my way back to the house.

Review:

This is the first time I grew this and the germination was 100%. Seedlings grew fine - it's interesting to see this fruit develop it's just like the picture. It's also worthy to note when you cut into the fruit it smells like it would be a hot chili but there is NO heat. I used it as I would for a seasoning pepper to get the aroma without the heat while cooking. Turns from a light yellow to a purple then to a fire red!
