Sweet Pepper, Shepherd’s Ramshorn (Organic)
Capsicum annuum. 75 days.
A rare medium-large, elongated and blocky, red Italian frying type pepper. Reputed to be one of the sweetest peppers around. Scored a high rating in the Northern Organic Variety Improvement Collaborative (NOVIC) trials for early maturity and flavor. Fruit are a little bit later and more stout than Corono di Toro, but more productive, even outdoors in cool Oregon summers. Originally from Spain, reselected in Italy, and that’s all we know of this wonderful pepper’s history. Aka, Shephard’s Ramshorn.
