This variety was introduced before 1860. In the 1880's, this pepper was shipped to the large markets in Paris from warmer areas like Algeria and Valencia. In the 19th century the 6-7-inch long fruit were among the largest offered, and popular with cooks. It produces long, cone-shaped peppers that are perfect for frying and salads. They are sweet and flavorful, but hardly ever offered in America. A good-producing pepper that is reported to be disease resistant.

What are the pros? Exceptional Taste

What are the cons? Only 1 or 2 per plant

Review:

In spite of the fact that these were not very prolific, I will definitely grow these every year because their taste was worth it. Delicious slightly spicy but sweet. Takes a long time to ripen, but wow. Worth the wait.

What are the pros? Thick enough to roast red ones

What are the cons? requires patience to turn red.

Review:

I have grown these for years in my zone 7 garden. They really like the heat and take a long summer to turn red just in time for me to roast and freeze for winter use. They are my staple and I love them. No matter how good my crop which varies from summer to summer I never have and left by spring. The hardest part for me is to leave the green ones on long enough to turn red, so I plant a different variety for green usages.

What are the pros? Sweet, slightly spicy taste A

What are the cons? Thin flesh, plant needs cage

Review:

Lots of long lean peppers, not overly large with a nice sweet spiciness. Plants needed extra support, grew 5 feet tall in greenhouse. Flesh a little thin for my liking but great for stir fries etc. Will grow again.

What are the pros? big fruits, easy maintenance

What are the cons? you need to secure these! lol

Review:

Grew these peppers last year and they were awesome producers! Got lots of Peppers and picked the last ones in mid October. The plants have a very thick foliage that do indeed protect the fruits from the sun. Only problem I had was that they got to be to big and heavy over 3' tall and didn't secure them properly and had a few tip over. These germinated for me very well early last spring as I started them in the house and then transplanted them the beginning of May.
