Item Details

This corno-di-toro (“horn of the bull”) type of sweet pepper earned high marks from Seed Savers Exchange staff at a 2014 tasting at our Heritage Farm headquarters. Curved, tapered fruit mature from green to red, have thin walls, and taste very sweet (not hot). Erect plants grow 14-28"" tall and have sparse branching, green leaves and stems with light-purple nodes, and white flowers. Mature fruit reach 5-7"" long and 1.5-3"" wide. Introduced in 1987 by Johnny’s Selected Seeds of Albion, Maine, this variety has been shared within the SSE Yearbook Exchange community ever since. 70-80 days from transplant. Sweet. Organic.

Wonderful roasting pepper


Thin skin easily blisters and peels when oiled and grilled. Very sweet and flavorful. Also, a great addition to dishes you want to sweeten with pepper flavor.
