Sweet Italian Frying Types

My favorite group for eating.  They are sweet with no pepper aftertaste.  While they are called frying peppers, they are excellent eaten fresh off the plant with a delightful fresh taste.

Dulce Italiano

Dulce Italiano- 85 days- I am very fond of Italian frying type peppers and the  lack of after taste when eating like a typical bell pepper. This one is larger and fatter as well as later than most. UNAVAILABLE FOR 2020

Gatherer’s Gold

Gatherer’s Gold- 85 days- very  thick walled large fruits maturing to a  pretty shade of orange.  Pkt. $3.00 Certified Organic  Seed

Giant of Italy

Giant of Italy - 80 days - I am very fond of the flavor and yields of the Italian type peppers.  The only problem is with the sandy soil we have and with all of the wrinkly skin they have, they tend to collect particles of sand from the soil.  This is especially in years when we have to irrigate by sprinkler.  It appears to splash the sand up into the plant more than rain and this means a lot of washing or you get a gritty pepper.  I have attempted to keep the yield and flavor and selected for a more smooth skinned variety.  A 2014 Sand Hill Preservation Center introduction.  Pkt. $2.25  Certified Organic Seed -OSSI pledged variety
