I have been receiving your catalogs for over 20 years. I always love your selections, although I don't order as often as I used to. I have a much smaller garden these days. My peppers are thriving even in the heat of LIttle Rock AR. Keep offering varieties that I cannot find anywhere else. I wish you much future success. B.Maddalone
Excellent! In this climate the bells tend to rot before they mature, but these hold up beautifully! Huge yield. I find the reds resist any mold better than the yellows, but the yellows are so pretty streaked with the green! I grow enough for me, the family and the food pantry with no spraying, no chemicals of any kind.
I have been growing this variety since the 1980's it is an Italian variety sweet pepper. The plant is large, very productive, yields lots of larger sized peppers. They turn from green to red. Some of them are large enough to stuff with meat and rice, etc. I usually grow this variety in tandem with Marconi and Jimmy Nardellos'. Down size in my view it is a larger pepper plant. It is very dependable. I am growing it again this year.
Only one seed germinated.
Here, where the summers get really, really hot with nearly bone-dry aridity we have to be picky about what varieties to put in our garden. Year after year the Corno Di Toro red churns out huge peppers that are my favorite for stuffing and frying. The walls are thick enough to use in soups, stews and sauces but thin enough that they fry quickly and easily. They also make decent paprika when they're ripe.
