75 day. Pointed, wedge-shaped fruit is purple streaked with pale yellow. We originally received a few seeds of this variety from a Russian seed trader. Ripens red. Very lovely and delicious, sweet, crisp and thick-walled. One of the finest and prettiest peppers we have tried!

What are the pros? Easily grown

What are the cons? Long wait to maturity

Review:

I was at first disappointed in this pepoer. The purple color is nice but the taste was...lacking depth. We ate a couple and kind of just let the plant go and forgot about it. Later on I was harvesting on a different variety and I was surprised to find several very red, pointy pepoers. They were sweet and meaty with very thick walls. The red color was intense! We chopped them and put them in the freezer with the other peppers and they perform every bit as well as our favorite California Wonder. I will not only grow these again, I will make them a regular in my garden from niw on.

What are the pros? Productive, tasty, easy

What are the cons? None

Review:

This beautiful little plant deserves a big shout-out! Compact and modest looking, but once it gets going there's no stopping it. Very hard working, blooms come in very quick succession and the plant fills with pale green fruit that soon mature to purple. Very fruity, rich taste, 2-3 bites per pepper, certainly not tiny. Those that made it into the house were perfect salad companions. It certainly won me over, and has more than earned its place in next year's lineup! The plants are small, so I am considering starting 3 seeds in one pot and then planting them out as a bundle - we'll see how that goes...

What are the pros? Easy to grow and a big produce

What are the cons? They have a bitter taste

Review:

These are fun to grow and the produce a lot of peppers but they tasted bitter. It’s probably something I did. I grew them in pots and used worm castings. The color on the inside is kind of off-putting because it is a tan color.

What are the pros? easy to use, great nice

What are the cons? loud, easily scratchy n/a

Review:

Very nice attractive and unique pepper, hard to find comparisons. Starts out chartreuse, then as they get grow they quickly get a purple "tan" on the outside until mostly purple. Good fresh eating quality in the purple stage with an above average mild taste with sweetness, eventually they will ripen to a very sweet red like most peppers. Not very large, they are smaller than a standard bell, bigger than a snack pepper, smaller than long roasting peppers, sort of like a pimento but not really. I have no idea how they are used in Russia, I thought they might be similar to frying peppers but Violet Sparkle is much better fresh than light colored frying peppers. Choice.

What are the pros? Color, flavor

Review:

I would probably just echo the other reviews. One of the most distinct looking sweet peppers there is. I think it tastes great, even in its green/violet stage. Walls aren't too thick/aren't too thin. I have grown them every year for the past few years. The only minor issue I've had is mine seemed to have a lower germination rate than other peppers, but they make up for it in being more resistant and resilient than other sweet pepper varieties I've started from seed.
