An Italian sweet pepper producing high yields of fruit shaped like elongated cones. Can be used as a tapas pepper.
An Italian sweet pepper bearing copious amounts of fruit early in the season. The fruit are shaped like elongated cones and grow to a length of about 10cm. They mature from green to red, but are traditionally used when still green. Used for frying in Italy, Friggitello may be at its best when treated like Padron and eaten whole as a mangetout. See ‘Additional Information’ for harvesting and cooking tips.
