Corbaci Pepper (Heirloom, 75 Days)

Heirloom. Unlike any pepper we have ever offered, and the longest available, besides the heirloom, Aconcagua. The most prolific and earliest, by mid July we had over a dozen 10 inch peppers on one plant making for suitable growing in the north. Super long, thin fruits; some stay straight, some spiral. Edible at any stage, they start out yellow-green, maturing into red, with a fruity, sweet flavor. This heirloom from Turkey isalso called Sari Tatli Sivri andused for fresh eating, pickling, frying and drying. We saved some of our reds to dry and turn into a paprika type powder.

PLANTING

Caspsicum annuum

Germination: 10-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85ºF. Cooler soil temperatures slows germination time.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before last frost. Sow in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85ºF soil temperatures. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 18-24” apart after last frost.

Sowing Outdoors: Not recommended, especially in northern areas

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.

Tips: Pinch-off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with composted if needed. It helps to use row cover early in the season, giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.

Pinetree seeds have excellent gemination.

This had high germination rates and grew on well. It's a nice pepper.

Corbaci Peppers

I bought this great Turkish pepper in 2018 and was VERY pleased with it - so again for 2019! It is very long and slender, many people think it has to be hot! However it is sweet, strong flavored, and stands up well to stir fry and soups, unlike most “American” peppers. Good producer AND the plants definitely need staking!

Extremely productive even in cool weather

I finally found a pepper that is truly productive in a cool climate. I'm thrilled. We had dozens of peppers from every plant. In fact we had so many we had a hard time using them up. I only gave them four stars because I didn't love the flavor raw and the seeds go from the stem almost all the way to the tip, so they are hard to prepare. But we did love them cooked! I will be planting them again next year.

Outstandinly healthy and productive plants. As the weather got cooler they turned red.

I grew them from seed and they were great performers in all aspects.
