Corno Di Toro Rosso Italian Sweet Pepper Seed

This variety is the largest of the sweet stuffing peppers. Large, sturdy plants (Which can grow to a height of up to 4 feet!) produce plentiful amounts of 8-12 inch long, tapered fruits that resemble a bull horn, hence the name. This variety is similar to the yellow variety although these peppers turn deep crimson red when ripe. They have the same sweet and spicy flavor, and are not hot at all. Fruits are about 1 1/2 inches wide at the shoulder and feature thick meaty inside flesh. They are wonderful roasted or eaten fresh. These are a traditional favorite in Italy and since I first got some seeds, they have been a favorite of mine as well. You will get a bountiful harvest from this variety!

87 days from transplant to harvest.

I always add a few extra seeds in each packet in case I count wrong.
