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? 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.

Review:

I thought I got ripped off when I still didn't have any peppers by August.Then it seemed almost overnight I had 10 big, red ones on every plant.I like that the plant has a lot of foliage to prevent sunburn. Plants were almost 3 feet tall and still going strong in Sept.Will plant again for a long time.

Review:

2015 summer - plants were in 1/2 shade, neglected and destroyed by a puppy. In late summer/ fall had 2 survive - produced enough to slice in veggie trays regularly. 6 yr old son LOVED them. Coming back for more and I'll take care of them this summer ;). Large, sweet peppers - didn't cause burping or stomach upset.

Review:

I would consider my thumb to be a bright shade of green, but when it comes to growing sweet peppers I've never had a whole lot of luck. They never get very large and the flesh tends to be thin. But this pepper was huge, thick, and very flavorful. I tried a few in the ground but the root-knot nematodes got to them. The ones in pots however, grew wonderfully. I have finally found the pepper for me.
