Ajvarski, Sweet Pepper

         
 
33 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
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.

What are the pros? yummy

What are the cons? had some disease problems

Review:

I agree with others on the deliciousness of this pepper. However, in 2018 we had one of the wettest years on record in the Washington DC area and I did have some disease issues. Based on taste, this is a permanent addition to my garden. I'm making the point that mid-Atlantic gardeners should try it...YUM!

What are the pros? Everything! Sweet and tasty

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

This is an exquisite sweet pepper on compact plants. We grew these in the summer of 2018 and were rewarded with highly productive plants with few problems with disease. Our best production occurred in the early fall to frost. Prior to that time it was a constant fight with the bugs....they preferred this sweet pepper over the hot peppers. I guess the bugs have good taste. When we roasted these , the fragrance was different than other sweet peppers. Sweet and intensely fragrant, our entire house was perfumed by the Ajvarski peppers. Do yourself a favor and give this one space in your garden. This has a permanent place in our yard. Zone 8A.

What are the pros? Very easy to grow.

What are the cons? none

Review:

I found these very easy to grow. Lots of peppers, and large enough to stuff. Froze a bunch, and still using them in stews and rice dishes. Not wasting my time growing bell peppers, if I can grow these. I find that they taste good, too.

Review:

I planted these seeds in starter pots outside. It took awhile for them to start, but once they did the plant grew strong. I live in the highlands and have a nightly average temperature of low 40's. Heavy producer, beautiful plant and pepper, great taste.
