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? 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

What are the pros? Prolific tasty pepper

What are the cons? Sunscald, blossom end rot?????

Review:

Pepper was tasty and produced well, but had some kind of blossom end rot, not sure it that is what it was. All my plants had this problem, even the ones I gave to my sister. I could only eat the middle to the top of the peppers. Same soil mix I used for all my peppers, but this variety is the only one I had that problem with. For this reason will not be growing it again.

What are the pros? Great taste!

What are the cons? They're getting sunscald

Review:

I had low germination rate on my seeds so I only got five plants. The peppers I've gotten so far are great! Prolific and sweet! I was saving one big, pretty pepper on the plant to save seed out of, but sadly, I had to pick it still green because it was ruining from sunscald, as are some of my bell peppers. We're having a bad drought here in my Texas area. My plants are still trying to produce, so hopefully I will get more peppers to eat, and one to save seeds from. Great peppers, and I've enjoyed eating them! Highly recommend!

What are the pros? Unbelievable sweet flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is, without question, the tastiest pepper I've ever grown. The plants are relatively compact but produce 6" thick dark red peppers that taste like they're soaked in sugar. Once I tried a few of them I gave all of my bell peppers away and just used these in all of our recipes that called for peppers. They're so good, in fact, that they're probably the only sweet pepper I'll plant this year. Can't recommend enough!
