Ajvarski, Sweet Pepper

Here’s a really outstanding roasting pepper from eastern Macedonia. Two-foot, stocky plants are covered in 6- to 7-inch, broadly wedge-shaped pods that ripen green to deep, rich red. These peppers are incredibly fragrant and tasty. When you throw half a dozen on your grill, everybody in your neighborhood will smell them! These thick-fleshed traditional peppers are roasted on flat metal stoves, peeled, then ground into a traditional relish called ajvar, which is eaten spread on bread, often with sirenje, a local cheese similar to feta. Nearly every rural household puts up a supply of ajvar for winter eating. In autumn, Macedonians flock to the markets in fertile valleys in the east to buy bushels of the best aromatic roasting peppers from the local villages. The original seed was a gift from the students in the villages of Kalugeritsa and Zleovo.

Review:

THE best peppers I've ever grown. Crazy delicious. I grill them then put strips on potato/rosemary bread with a mixture of feta, olive oil, lemon, fresh mint, and sauteed onions with a touch of garlic. Topped off with a sprinkle of Malden sea salt flakes. The only downside is that the plants didn't produce many peppers. Only a few per plant. I'm wondering if a lot of the blossoms got knocked off during a big storm? The plants themselves look healthy, just not much to show. but still, it was worth it even for 3-4 peppers/plants. They are that delicious!

Review:

If you like peppers but think the bell peppers in the grocery store have a bad aftertaste, this is your huckleberry! These are perfectly sweet and fleshy enough to sub for bells in any recipe. NO funky aftertaste. Large enough to stuff if you stuff them like pablanos. I haven't put them on the grill yet but I've been blistering them on my gas stove (like pablanos) and they are lovely. Didn't get quite enough from three plants to make adjvari but I couldn't quit eating them. Next year I'll have to make some more room for them and some eggplant, too. Hard to find a pepper that can thrive in zone 5 but this one does ok. Pretty soon I'll find out what they taste like green.

Review:

I was compelled to write a review even though I forgot (DOH!) to grow these this season. I always describe Ajvarski as the only bell pepper I need to grow! I've saved seeds over the years, sharing with other gardeners, and they agree. They are prolific--tons of peppers on each plant--and they actually get super red before getting a hole in them, unlike my experience with other bells. And they taste fantastic! A depth of flavor that doesn't even need cooking, and they stand up to freezing raw for later in the season. Needless to say I love these peppers and am kicking myself that I forgot to grow them this year.

Review:

These are so delicious. Fast growing and productive. My only 'complaint' is that they don't ripen to red fast enough...been trying to let them get there but they are so tasty on the grill that they never get to stay on the plant that long.

Review:

This is the second year, I have planted these in whiskey barrles. I made sure I planted 12 plants this year. They are prolific producers. I love them! My granddaughter picks them off and eats them. I had trouble with rabbits this year, and lost 1/2 of my plants, so my son started some in a controlled environment (indoor greenhouse with light 24/7). Within a few weeks they were ready to go outside. They acclimated well after a few days of dappled shade. These will always be in my gardens.
