Details

Developed just for salsa, this medium-hot chile pepper is heavy bearing and delicious, too. Boasting just the right amount of heat, it can be picked green for salsa or allowed to turn red for full nutritional kick to use in salads, sauces, and more. It's a great all-purpose pepper, because it does offer a nicely nuanced flavor that works in a variety of dishes. Expect these long, skinny peppers to reach 8 or 9" long but just about 1" in diameter at the widest point (the shoulders). The skin is thin, glossy, and firm, protecting the succulent flesh within. You can even dry and grind it into a spice. Adaptable and generous with the yields, this is a dependable pepper you will come back to season after season in the vegetable garden. The plant's resistance to tobacco mosaic virus makes it far more likely to deliver big crops every time. Non-Isolated.
