CAPSICUM ‘Peperoni Lombardo’

Botanical Name: Capsicum annuum

‘Peperoni Lombardo’ is often listed as a chili but it is so mild it is best described as a capsicum. This Italian heirloom is traditionally used in its green stage for pickling or preserving in oil. The fruit is 15 cm long and skinny, 2-3cm wide, tapering to a point. It changes color from a pale green to a bright shiny red. It has a sweet, mild taste and can be used in salads or stir-fries. The bushes grow to 80cm tall and are highly productive.
