Details

A dazzling heirloom jewel from Russia, this breathtaking sweet pepper wins top marks across the board for unmatched beauty, vigor and of course, flavor. It isn't bell-shaped, but belongs in this sweet category with its crisp colorful compatriots. Short plants produce a profusion of early pointed 4" fruits that start out chartreuse, streak purple, then turn more fully purple with red streaking, before ripening solid red. This color medley is at play on the plants, so you can harvest a stunning sparkling assortment. Besides the stunning looks, it also has a very sweet taste which makes it super suitable for tasty stuffing, as fresh in salads, or even to be eaten as it is! Non-Isolated.
