Description

A new Italian F1 variety of pepper, which is quick-cropping, juicy and heavy producing. It excelled in our greenhouse trial and we harvested an abundance of sweet, tender red peppers from August till November. You can also crop them early while they are still green. I started doing this after eating delicious green 'Frigitello' peppers in a restaurant in London, where they were served like Padron peppers, just fried in olive oil and sprinkled with flaky salt.

Care Tips

Grow in a greenhouse, in pots or in the ground.
