From Germany. Also known as Candy Apple. These darling, red-ruffled peppers have sweet, thick flesh. The name literally translates from German to “Love Apple”— apparent by the shape of the pepper. The pods look like a cross between an apple and a tiny pumpkin. These are a very sweet pimento-type pepper. Plants are typically very productive. Non-Isolated.
