80 days. The name means “engraved.” Another local name, Vezeni Piperki, means “embroidered.” Both names refer to the curious lines on the skins of tapering, long, thin peppers. The fruits, which range from mild to sometimes very pungent, are to be seen hanging in great clusters, drying in Macedonian warm late autumn sun. The traditional farmers save seed from the hot fruits which also show the most pronounced striations. Our foundation seed was donated by school children from the villages of Kalugeritsa and Zleovo.

What are the pros? delicious, odd, beautiful

What are the cons? the long maturity

Review:

I started these indoors alongside my tomatoes. At the start of the year (after transplanting) they grew quite slowly but they finished out into 2ft tall leafy plants and produced a reasonable, though later crop (they would have happily produced me a lot more if winter would cut me some slack :P ). My great rating is mostly because the pepper flakes I made with the dried ripe peppers are such a great flavor. I put them on everything and they have a lovely strong burn (our soil does seem to make peppers a bit hotter than they normally would be though). Not a high producer here, but still completely worth it for that taste. I'm growing more this year guaranteed,

A textural treat

What are the pros? textured fruits, strong growth

What are the cons? limited production

Review:

Oh my goodness, I love these! Always a sucker for unusual fruits, I was not disappointed. The texture of the pepper skin is sort of akin to a russet potato, but more intricate. The flavor was quite good. And the peppers dried very well. Plants were strong growers, but not super prolific (what can you do here in the cool Northwest). All of the peppers I got were works of art. Weird and fantastic!

Too hot for me
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow; exotic appearanc

What are the cons? Too hot

Review:

These grew vigorously in upstate NY. I love how they look. A very fragrant pepper, easy growing and prolific. BUT - I bought this pepper because it was reviewed as mixed mild to hot. Every plant grew fruit too hot to eat. Hotter than tabasco; hotter than lemon drop; hotter than fish; nearly as hot as hot paper lantern, but without the flavor. I may grind up the pods for hot pepper powder, but they may be too hot for that even.

Grows well in southern heat

What are the pros? Size, Easy to Grow, Delicious

What are the cons? Not very hot

Review:

These grew very well for me in a container in the Georgia heat. Everyone asked what they were, they look so unique! My wife was initially hesitant to eat them, because of their woody appearance, but loved them once she tried them. Great raw, cooked, and easy to dry. My only complaint is that they were not as hot as I had expected, but all the ghosts and habaneros I was eating probably skewed my perception.

What are the pros? Prolific, flavor, longevity

What are the cons? Disease prone, slow in pots

Review:

I had a love hate relationship with my rezha peppers. At one point at had 30 unripe peppers on each plant, and then some disease hit (I kept getting conflicting information from the internet on what it was), maybe end rot. I love almost all the peppers on two plants, and some on the other two, and the others slowed blooming. The plants seem to do better in cooler weather, it's 45 degrees outside right now and mid-November, and I have fresh blooms and tiny peppers. The flavor is great, the spiciness ranges from very spicy to medium spicy. I will try again next year, hopefully I can avoid the disease that hit this year, because these are delicious and beautiful.
