Aconcagua Elongated Sweet Pepper(85 days) Open-pollinated. The highest peak in both the Western and Southern hemispheres, Aconcagua in Argentina stands a lofty 22,841 ft. We are pleased to offer this ginormous frying pepper that is said to originate in Argentina.
Elongated cone-shaped 2½x10" fruits tapering to a blunt rounded end can approach a foot in length. Turning from green to yellow to orange to red, the gorgeous fruits are very sweet, crunchy and fruity, ideal for grilling and frying. Delicious at any stage of ripeness. The plants reach almost 3', with such a heavy pendent fruit set that they benefit from staking. May not always ripen fully to red for northern-tier growers, although we saw many red fruits in this year’s Common Ground Exhibition Hall.②
