A tasty Romanian frying pepper brought to North America by Jan Antohi, a touring acrobat , when he defected to the USA. This is a pimento style pepper, 10cm long and 5cm wide. The plants are sturdy, well branched and they yield abundantly. Fruits ripen early even in the north. They start pale yellow and ripen to red. The sweet flavour is expressed by frying in a little hot olive oil.
Days to Maturity: 53 days yellow, 78 days red
