80 days. Open Pollinated. Tasty and substantial paprika-type peppers break through the tops of compact plants, practically calling out to be picked. Early and prolific, the bulky fruit reach up to 5 inches long; beginning an ivory to laser lemon color before ripening orange, then red at full maturity. The thick-walled peppers have exceptionally sweet flesh, delightful fresh or for use in cooking, with just a touch of mild heat. Mature peppers can be dried and ground into very flavorful paprika powder.
