75 days. This Italian heirloom variety ripens from yellow to green, to a deep, delicious red and become remarkably sweet and succulent. 3-5 in. long peppers are great for salads and cooked dishes, but they excel as picklers. Bushy, protective plants are lovely in containers.
100-seeds sowa s 20-ft. row.
Note: Plants will ship in Spring.
I bought these peppers accidentally; didn't realize what I had until harvest. They did have quite a little zing to them--just right for my salsa fresca. Am surprised to see them in the sweet pepper list. But they were wonderful. Am certain to get them again next year. Of course it's a matter of taste, but for my salsa, I think they add a better taste than the poblano and jalapeno peppers.
On a whim I decided to try pepperoncini this year, since I love the store bought pickled ones. These guys are easy to grow so far and taste wonderful, pickled or not. So far I have been able to pickle three small batches and it's only July. I'm looking forward to pickling several more batches this summer!
