PuckerButt Pepper Company

CP 156 - Gigante de Calabria

From the Christopher Phillips Rare Seed Collection R5--Release #5 on December 9, 2014. These wonderful 5-6 inch long blocky red peppers originating from the Calabria region - Southern Italy - have amazing sweetness with just a touch of heat on the backend. These would be wonderful to grill, fry or just eat raw. After biting into this one, it honestly was difficult to put it down before reaching the end. This region is well known for its fine cuisine.
