Description

Half-size Corno di Toro.

A popular class of peppers, cornitos are 1-1 1/2″ wide at the shoulders and 5″ long. They are very early, sweet, and attractive smaller versions of Carmen and Escamillo, with similar maturity. Perfect for grilling and roasting, like their full-size counterparts. Known as a kapia type in Europe, where it is quite popular. Bred by Janika Eckert.

 

Days to Maturity: 60 green; 80 red ripe

Suggestions: Peppers need a warm soil and night temperature to prosper. They will stunt under 10C. Location should be sheltered from the wind and soil should be kept reasonably moist. Be sure to harden off the seedlings to reduce transplant stress. Harvest fruit early and often. The more you pick the more they will produce. Do not pull off fruit, rather cut from stems.
Pot size: Minimum 12″ per plant or plant in ground 12″ away from next plant.
