Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Sucette de Provence - ripe fruit. 2013-10-24.


Vigorous plants produce lots of peppers all season long until frost. Pods are 6" long and 1/2-3/4" in diameter, medium hot and so tasty, both in green and red stage. They dry up easily and can be ground into medium-hot paprika powder. A very good spicy addition to a fresh tomato salad or to your marinade.
