The red, elongated fruits of this variety have a sweet flavor, an even burn, and a truly unique appearance—twisted and spiraled with wrinkled skin, they resemble a ram’s horn. The pendant fruits measure 5-8" long and 1" wide, and weigh approximately an ounce, while the plants grow 1.5-2' tall and have sparsely branched, green leaves, making this variety ideal for small spaces. Highly productive when grown at Heritage Farm, ‘Ram’s Horn’ matures mid-season. This variety is originally from Emily Eidson of South Carolina, whose family grew these heirloom peppers in her childhood (circa 1910). 75-85 days. Hot.
