Every season, we get particularly excited about a handful of new varieties, and this unassuming little sweet pepper was recently near the top of that list. A specialty of Bulgaria, this heart-shaped, pimiento type pepper ripens from green to bright red with very thick walls and wonderful sweet flavor, the perfect small size for stuffing, yet plenty substantial enough for roasting (our source for many year’s Ajvar and Romesco). Early and very prolific, the plants sport a superb architecture: sturdy, compact, and upright keeping the fruits up off the soil even in wet conditions.
