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:

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.

What are the pros? great taste and texture

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

great unique sweet taste! similar to bell pepper but even better and crispier. seed took a moment to get going but once it did it really cruised along. peppers are heavy and large and really enjoys some staking up/support. i definitely recommend this one for sweet pepper lovers. next year i'd put them in an even sunnier spot for better growth, however they are doing great with some shade regardless...

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!
