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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, tastes great

What are the cons? None

Review:

Grew these because I remembered eating peppers like these while living in Bulgaria. I've never had luck growing sweet peppers, they never ripened to red. These ones not only turned a beautiful and delicious red, but they withstood really terrible and wet weather this year. I have saved these ones and will be growing them from now on.

What are the pros? Thick flesh, early ripe red

What are the cons? only 15 seeds to a packet

Review:

These are fantastic peppers. Preface: I plant all of my nightshades with a mix of epsom salt, non-fat dry milk, baking soda and milorganite. I always intend to go back and side-dress again with the same mixture, but usually forget. I had 80 peppers to plant this year and every one got a fat handful of this mix--nope, I don't remember the proportions, I look it up every year on the web. I had no trouble with blossom end rot or blight, and we had plenty of rain in Wisconsin this year in the last few weeks for that to show up. It was so bad last year, I almost didn't plant nightshades this year. So, this pepper is tasty, tasty enough that I split them open, pull the seeds, and fry them with a little coconut oil to sear the skins, then sprinkle with some pink salt, and thats the vegetable for dinner. Excellent sweet pepper flavor, not bland. They are prolific too--lots of peppers on one plant. I used weed barrier this year, and will use it again, the heavy, black 5 oz type.

So sweet

What are the pros? Sweet, “early” for a pepper

What are the cons? didn’t grow enough plants

Review:

This plant matured pretty quickly for a red pepper. I started my seeds in mid February and transplanted outside Mother’s Day weekend. Then we had 7 days of rain and all of my plants went into shock! The peppers recovered fine. This was the second to produce behind the banana pepper. I ate the first one raw and it was sooooo sweet! Next year I plan on growing at least 4 of these pepper plants!

What are the pros? Thick dense rich red sweet

What are the cons? None

Review:

I wish I had a whole field of these beauties. I have grown many peppers over the years. Lot's of chiles too. These surpass even a ripe red Chile poblano. The thickness and density of their flesh is amazing and the rich red color is a thing of beauty. So sweet so good let them go fully ripe. Then just cook them like you would do a Mexican Chile the thick skin peels off easily chop them up and use them for everything. so good
