Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Ise - ripe fruit. 2014-09-24.


Plants are bushy and quite compact, ideal for containers. Pods are 3" long and 1.5" wide, irregularly shaped but somewhat rectangular and tapering, mature from green to red. Larger than Shishito pepper, but very similar in taste and texture. Thin skin makes it perfect for drying. Very aromatic and sweet. Delicious! (15 seeds / packet)
