(Capsicum annuum) Called Chiltoma Grande de Ometepe in Spanish, this flavorful sweet pepper was acquired in 1998 from Ana Carballo, a farmer and produce vendor in Concepcion, Nicaragua. A traditional indigenous pepper from the fertile island of Ometepe in Lake Nicaragua, it is exceptional for its large fruit up to 7 inches long which tapers to a flat, crooked point on the blossom end. Use green or red as a stuffing pepper. Height: 36 inches. Space about 18 inches apart.
