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? disease free, heavy producer

What are the cons? none

Review:

I grew Ozark Giant, King of the North, and Red Cheese in 2018. Disclaimer: I used straw mulch which suppressed soil temperatures and pepper plant growth. Of the varieties chosen, Red Cheese produced earliest and also the most individual red fruit (10 fruit per plant), but the flesh was tightly wrapped around the seeds, which made them fussy to eat raw or cut up. Ozark Giant produced 0 fruit for me, and King of the North produced 5 red fruit per plant. Ajvarski blew them all away in terms of growth characteristics, fruit quality, and flavor. They produced 5 red fruit per plant. The Ajvarski plants were unaffected by a bacterial disease outbreak that defoliated both Ozark Giant and King of the North, and fruits dried down in ambient temperature on my kitchen counter without rotting. Very sweet crisp fleshed fruit with a tongue-like shape and two lobes that were easily to slit up the sides to remove seeds and cut into strips efficiently. Just great!

What are the pros? Amazing taste; easy to grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

Started these along with several other varieties this spring in South Florida. Seedlings were around 6inches tall when we got 3 weeks of rain all day everyday in May. Moved some plants into different areas and actually forgot about the spot I had the Ajvarski's. A few months later I was pulling weeds and noticed something deep red underneath some ground cover.... wound up being a perfectly ripe Ajvarski. Tasted so good! Even detected some apple flavors in it! Definitely earned a permanent spot in the annuals garden for years to come!

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.
