Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Zolotisty - ripe fruit. 2013-09-16.


Large sweet peppers, 3-7 oz, with 0.5 cm thick walls. Most fruits are shaped like bell peppers, but some can be more elongated. Fruits turn golden yellow when ripe. Quite early in our climate, one of the first larger sweet pepper varieties to ripen in our garden. Very productive, it starts producing in late July up until the first frost in October. Very impressive variety that performs consistently well for us every year. Perfect for stuffing. Delicious flavor, both cooked and fresh.
