Availability: In stock



The name translates to “stitched” and is also often known as the Elefant pepper. It is so named because of the extreme corking on the peppers. This Kosovo heirloom has a medium heat that has an amazing sweet flavor behind the heat. The long-podded, prolific peppers ripen from green to red. This is a fantastic variety for canning, roasting, pickling and drying. Vesena is by far the most unusual looking pepper we have grown.

Michigan Seeds grown on our farm Renegade Acres in Howell, MI!
