70 days. Open Pollinated. A gorgeous, bright orange Italian frying pepper. Similar to Italian Sweet in size (8 to 10″ long), shape, and productivity, but a little slower to mature. Worth the wait, though, as the fruits are sweet, fruity, and crisp. Stays gold/orange when mature. Perfect for frying, grilling, stuffing, and chopping raw into salads. Not many made it to our kitchen, though, because they are a delicious snacking pepper. Developed in Oregon, so you know it can handle climates with cooler nights.
