Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Padron No.5 - ripe fruit. 2013-08-11.

B.C KO T

Elongated red peppers, 3-5" long and 1.5-1.8" in diameter, thin walls, a bit wrinkled and curved. In the first few fruits the heat was only in seeds and membranes, but the flesh is quite mild and sweet. Fruits get hotter as they mature, and acquire some delicious medium heat. We liked it fresh in a tomato salad, it adds a wonderful dimension of flavor.

Seed source:

1. Donald C. Kellums of Port Byron, Illinois (IL KE D) 12 / CV Sementi
2. Tomato Growers Supply 14

Year grown: 2013

Location: Zone 7b, PNW, Anmore, BC, Canada (760 ft above sea level)
