This variety is the largest of the sweet stuffing peppers. The name of this Italian heirloom translates as "Horn of the Bull". When fully ripe the fruits are a gorgeous deep crimson red and grow 15 to 25 cm long and 4 to 6 cm wide at the top. Suitable for cultivation in the greenhouse or outdoors, they mature 70 to 80 days from transplanting. They can be harvested while still green or can be left on the plant to ripen. They have a sweet, crisp, full-bodied flavour that makes them popular among chefs and homemakers. Often served fried in Italy, they are also used in salads or stuffed, grilled with olive oil or in pizza and pasta dishes.
